Projection mapping is a projection technique used to turn objects into display surfaces for video projection. These objects may be large and complex such as buildings and sculptures, or small indoor objects and stages. By using specialized software three-dimensional objects are spatially mapped in the program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. The software can interact with a projector to fit any desired image onto the surface of that object.
This technique is used by artists and advertisers alike who can add extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects. The video can be triggered by audio, touch control or motion tracking to create an audio-visual experience. The art, objects and installations we map projections onto are enhanced to bring new dimension, elevating even the most mundane spaces into kaleidoscopic wonderlands.
Here we are mapping animations to a Moog analog synthesizer and music workstation and a 3D wall panel.
And here's another animation on a 2D wall panel, which could be scaled to cover a full wall of them!
