When darkness falls on April 17 and 18 2013 why not venture out to Pier 15 in San Francisco? Obscura Digital is planning to transform it for the Exploratorium’s Grand Opening. It's called ‘Emergence.’ They've designed and built ten miniature replicas of the Exploratorium’s façade and will use projection mapping to display natural subjects on the surface of the building, creating the illusion that they are contained within its structure. Art, design, nature and technology come together and projectors are the cornerstone. Here's a video preview of how it will be done:

This projection mapping event occurred in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Stalingrad. It is magnificent in the way it transports the spectators back in time. You can see it in their faces.more

With all eyes on New York City as world leaders met at the UN, protesters lit up the exterior wall of Bobst at NYU with images and messages that could not be ignored.more

BBC radio reported earlier today that about 36 projectors were beaming onto Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Jubilee Celebration. I found a video clip of the band Madness playing background music for this historic projection mapping event that I think was more than just a great show of technology prowess.more

I've always appreciated the way Microvison goes about the business of marketing their laser pico projectors. They understand that by geting their projectors into the right hands those hands can make magic and increase awareness and appreciation for their projectors like nothing they could have done on their own. One example of this is the short film "The Speed of Light" which is becoming a viral hit as I write.more

I've been looking for a video that would give us insight into the mechanism behind 3D projection advertising. Thank you 3DprojectionCO.com for documenting the steps taken for the Lexus CT200H spectacular building projection. For those of us mesmerized by this art form, watching the details from the ground up can give the letdown feel of seeing the dismantled floats after the Rose Bowl. But if you are of the "need to know" persuasion this video will give you a glimpse into the beauty that transpires when projectors and creative minds are given a giant canvas and a big budget.

Commissioned in celebration of UAE National Day 2011, Obscura Digital was in charge of both projection and design in this mapping project that utilized 44 projectors with a combined brightness of 840,000 lumens covering a a surface 600ft wide x 351ft high. All I can say is Mash'Allah--that's some amazing work.

The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England recently opened what is to be a permanent AV installation that will highlight the depth and breadth of the Museum's collections. Most intriguing is the manner in which the creators conceived of this 3D wave that culminates in a "Puffersphere" spherical projector at the far left. Looking at the geometrical complexities of that structure, video mapping the wave was likely quite a feat.

I love the artistic mind. This video conveys in its minimalistic brilliance psychosociological truths about which volumes have likely been written. It is fun, it is deep, and it begs me to investigate the power of projectors in crowd control.

The Quartier des Spectacles is Montreal's entertainment district and the perfect space for the work of artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. Articulated Intersect-Relational Architecture 18, was created for La Triennale Quebecoise 2011. Lozano-Hemmer's kinetic sculptures are known around the world but this is the first time the artist has produced something of this scale in the middle of a major city-- the place he calls home. The apparatus consists of eighteen 10,000-watt projectors. Six electromechanical levers, each connected to three projectors,will be manipulated by six participants to create sculptures in the downtown sky.more
