Studying the human anatomy in a classroom can be excruciatingly dull. I wish I could turn back the clock, return to my hopeless high school and college biology classes and infuse them with a little 3D projection mapping. When the body's systems come alive the impression is a lasting one.

This is the very first projection mapping event at Pirelli Tower. The tower which has become one of the most recognized symbols of Milan came to life when its 9000 square meter facade awoke and Thomas Dold (vertical running world champion)took to the stairs and raced to the top in under four minutes.

There is some great stuff coming out of St Petersburg. This is the second 3D projection mapping example I've seen in the last couple of days produced by Russia's Illuminarium3000. It is not simply that I was drawn to their idea of creating an architectural form out of a human face;it is how ably they convey the truths about the masks we wear and the nature of the human psyche through a very impressive projection mapping installation.

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:

Further proof that projection mapping is making inroads and impact in the world of theater production, this clip from The Satirikon Theater's "Romeo and Juliette" is from 2012. Four Christie projectors were utilized in the mapping process for this event. It is clear that projection mapping enhances every mood and enables a kind of interaction previously impossible on stage. It seems as though projection mapping might ultimately redefine the role of technology and digital artistry in theater

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?

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

3D projection mapping illuminates the facade of the Fine Art School of Nimes. This Cosmo AV production needs little introduction. It simply exemplifies larger than life image creation through large format projection. In short--it is pure entertainment.

Projectors and projection technology have wowed the crowds at yet another major music venue. This year it was at the Grammys when Carrie Underwood wore the technology in the form of a large skirted Roberto Cavalli gown that became a four and half foot projector screen displaying moving images and flickering colors.
