Striped Facade Projection

This wonderful Urbanscreen.com projection mapping production was sent by an architect friend of mine who tried to explain to me the meaning of parallax as it pertains to this video. Watch as the projected stripes bend the building's facade.

Beaming with Ideas

Everyone is talking about Juan and how happy he makes people. My jaded soul's first response is "It's an ad for LG." But still, it should not detract from the happiness that video artists can bring in so many ways when they get creative with projectors and help the art of 3D projection mapping to evolve. That is the core of the viral success of this ad.

The Penbook:Projecting Paper

The Penbook combines pen paper and digital.It takes hand-written
input using a digital pen on real paper that is augmented with
a projection screen and could easily redefine how we interact with documents. In this video you can see it at work in a medical records capacity.more

Glowarp and a Shift in Projection Mapping

This mapping project by Glowarp was from a contest held earlier this year. Sit back and enjoy the glorious voice of Placedo Domingo and witness some evolution in 3D projection mapping: the introduction of a concept.

Casio Projectors Evolve into Airport Virtual Assistants

When lamp free projectors were on the horizon, many of us who are involved with projectors began to speculate just how their existence might change things. After all, if the high expense of a lamp change were not an issue, projectors would be an obvious choice for 24/7 applications utilized across a broad spectrum of industries.more

3D Printing: A Revolution in the Making

We've been keeping an eye on developments in the world of 3D printing for the last couple of years. The subject is getting a lot of attention recently because 3D printing is now cheaper and more efficient and there are whole lot more players in the market. Of course, aside from the fact that 3D printing could have complete and utter game changing impact on our entire consumer culture, our interest for this post lies in the technology's innards which include DLP projection.more

Festival Focuses on Reshaping Public Space through Media Art

I hope to see more of these festivals all over the world. The Screen City Festival is taking place later this month (October 25th – 27th 2013.) in Stavanger/Sandnes Norway.

The whole concept comes from an attempt to study the moving image presented in public spaces, on the city`s facades, shop windows and urban venues in order take Stavanger out of its urban context through the vehicle of media art.more

Award Winning Projection Mapping Facade

A large 3D projection mapping installation in Europe that occurs every other Fall, this award winning production by URBANSCREEN 'COHERENT STATES', was featured in the Lichtsicht Biennale as it is known, in 2011/12. 120 meters long and 15 meters high the largest salt works in Western Europe is transformed into a huge projection surface for this projection mapping event and showcase for what we fans know is a most exciting emerging art form.

Projectors Used in the Art of Dance

It is, of course, a very logical step--that is to combine dance and interactive media to completely alter perception and and communication. This blend, in my view only enriches art because by blending bodies and technology we create a hybrid entity that allows us to reach new heights for communicating ideas. What we are losing verbally we are gaining visually.more

Cake Projector

This example of creative projection combines a few of my favorite things: Star Wars,a pico projector and a birthday cake. Which element is the most unlikely? The pico projector of course! Nevertheless, a wonderful cake maker dad with a penchant for electronics pulled it off and projected Princess Leia out of an R2D2 cake with a Netbook on the outside running VGA to a Microvision Show WX on the inside.more
