In honor of Good Friday, here is a micro projection mapping project out of Poland produced by Tving Stage Design. With an egg at the cornerstone symbolizing life, images of suffering and death imply that redemption is gained through rebirth. Is everyone else seeing this too?

It is curious how a 3D projector mapping shrubs and small trees results in visual art so ....natural. This projection mapping shown at Digital Life 2012 in the Romaeuropa Festival was like watching a dream reveal itself. My home is surrounded by forest and I enjoyed the projection artists portray a day's first light in a futuristic way that changed my perception of space.

In ad effort to relay to the public just how durable their SuperQuad 3D projector really is, DigitalProjection decided to run it over with a 3.3 ton truck. They rolled over it six times to show that the projector would not only survive the abuse, but would continue to perform. As you can see, the movie played on...

This was an ambitious setting for 3D projection mapping but PostPanic--the Amsterdam based creative studio pulled it off masterfully. The cylindrical shape of a distinctive building in the area provided the canvas for a four minute abstract and graphic interpretation of the story of "The Human Age."more

For strings lovers the affair begins with a admiration of the instrument's silhouette. The gorgeous design of a double bass inspired this projection mapper, Jacques-André Dupont to use a spacial scanner, a tool from the box of the MadMapper himself that uses calibrated projection and photography to “scan” a three-dimensional object's position for mapping purposes.more

When production company The Found Collective was given the task of creating a new kind of projection mapping for Sony Playstation, they did not disappoint. They used live puppetry, 3D tracking and pyrotechnics to create three different vignettes from popular films. They were also kind enough to give those of us who cannot get enough 3D projection mapping a glimpse into the world of research and development.

No other reason to post this video other than it is a very cool example of the possibilities of projection mapping. It caught my eye because it takes place in Kosice Slovakia where the most amazing examples of Gothic architecture still stand as a perfect canvas for mad mappers everywhere. This one uses St. Urban's Tower (Urbanova veža) which dates back to the turn of the 15th Century. All those years provide fodder for legends as well as truths and this production by limelightprojection.com aims to tell the story of the history of the tower though the artistry of 3D projection mapping.

NuFormer strikes again--this time in China while Mercedes-Benz intros their new B-Class. Mercedes seems to have latched on to the power of the projector as 3D projection mapping is becoming a fixture at their launch events. Fortunately for mapping hounds, they employ the services of NuFormer -a team out of the Netherlands bent on evolution in the art. Before now projection mapping would occur with the images projected onto the body of a car.more

Leave it to Mercedes-Benz to use projection mapping to create a powerful display that not only underlines the power of precision in automotive technology, but in the 3D mapping that brought the message to life. Larger than life on the Town Hall Building in Olomouc at a local festival, the quality of this project is what you've come to expect from this auto giant and a clear indicator of an ever rising bar for projector artists.
