Performance artists U-Machine created this work in which a pole dancer interacts with the geometric images projected on the screen behind her. The result is a live performance that could pass as the opening credit sequence for the next James Bond movie (if it had guns.)
Filmmaker Jeff Desom teamed up with model maker Oli Pesch to recreate miniature sets of famous movie scenes, and then populated them with “holographic” images of actors projected onto an angled semi-transparent screen. This is how 3D movies should look. More here.
Oskar & Gaspar show us the least painful way to get a full body tattoo, by projection mapping intricate designs onto the bodies of models who already had some real ink. The animations truly bring the tattoos to life, though some of them kind of creeped us out.
In Russia, many drivers ignore signs for disabled parking spaces. The non-profit Dislife decided to teach these folks a lesson by rigging up holographic projections of people with disabilities who would pop up as they enter a parking space without the proper permit.
Artists Mimi Son and Elliot Woods of Kimchi and Chips created this incredible light installation which uses countless, precisely controlled light beams to create volumetric objects which appear to float in space. Geek out on the tech here.
We saw a concept for a watch that could project the time back in 2009. Now, there’s an Indiegogo campaign to bring one to reality. The Ritot uses tech which can shine the current time, messages and notifications on the back of your hand.
The planning that went into this projection mapping really makes it shine. Enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into a site-specific theater piece from the creative professionals at URBANSCREEN.
