Form and Substance: Projection Mapping in Contemporary Art.
Group Exhibition curated by the curators of videomapping.tumblr.com
Spring 2013 Brooklyn, NY
Projection Mapping is the premier artistic technique of our age. Projection Mapping (also called Video Mapping) utilizes specialized software to create a projected image that perfectly fits any desired surface, including irregularly shaped screens, 3 dimensional objects, architecture, etc. changing its very nature; allowing for the surface in question to convey any message that the artist desires. When done right, the result is magical. “Form and Substance” brings together work by several prominent artists in this field to create and activate paintings, sculptures and installations.

In 1950, Jackson Pollock proclaimed: “New needs need new techniques. And the modern artists have found new ways and new means of making their statements. Each age finds its own technique.” Projection Mapping is the technique of our age.
Onionlab presents Evolució, a piece that revolves around the graphic and sound abstraction of the concept it is named after: evolution. It is construed as transformation, construction and alteration of reality through time; evolution as a discontinuous creation process as well.
Created with 3D projection mapping techniques, this time, Evolució was projected onto the façade of the Musées d’art et d’histoire de Genève, though the piece takes the evolution concept even further: It was conceived as an open transformation process so that it can also be adapted to different façades and projection surfaces, and so that Evolució can continue its transformation process.
Evolució is available for further projections, as it can be adapted to various physical formats, e.g. indoor structures, or different façades. If you are interested in exhibiting the piece or want more information about it, please do not hesitate to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
Organized by Mapping Festival and Les Musées d’art et d’histoire de la Ville de Genève
Fragmental is a tetrahedron based geometric sculpture - designed as a surface for typographic animations. Using the projection mapping technique we get an illusion of depth & perspective that gives the different kinds of letters a new dimension in space & time.
St Lucas university college of art & design presented me the task of creating a Font machine. A machine that on its own creates an unique font. I have chosen light as my medium for creating the 26 characters of the alphabet. By using the projection mapping technique where the light acts as the medium for the machine - I was able to bring the full alphabet to life.
The Lumiphonic Creature Choir is a unique new interactive instrument that fuses music, visuals and sculpture together. It is a giant audio-visual creature of twelve disembodied heads on long medusa-like necks that sing or recite prose as you press a button.
The Lumiphonic Creature Choir is currently being used as part of a groundbreaking multimedia pop band. It can be also used for installations, spoken word, performances and for unique musical education purposes.
The 10 year celebration theme for Roppongi Hills is “LOVE TOKYO.” We will be starting a movement here from Roppongi Hills to transform Tokyo into a more attractive and exciting “world-class city.” We are opening a 10th anniversary website in which users can experience 3D projection mapping on a miniature model of the city of Tokyo at a 1:1000 scale. Participants can enjoy various motifs of the city: “Futuristic City,” “Rock City,” and a traditional Japanese “Beauty of Nature” motif by pressing the keys on a keyboard, as if playing the piano. Exploit the possibilities and make Tokyo more dynamic and exciting. Join us in a symphony with the entire city of Tokyo, and enjoy this completely new visual experience.

Pirelli Tower, historic symbol of Milan and milestone in contemporary architecture, for the first time ever has been the stage of a projection mapping. At the launch of Adidas Boost in Italy, each of 9000 square meters of the facade came to life, resulting in a show of monumental proportions. The building was shaken by vibrations of energy, bent, broken, torn, and even brought down. The projections also accompanied the exhibition of Thomas Dold (vertical running world champion) who raced up the stairs of the 31 floors of the skyscraper reaching the top in less than four minutes (vimeo.com/63239462), while the public was able to follow real time data on its performance on the tower facade, transformed for the occasion into a giant screen. Before and after the show, with the screening of live tweets and instagram photos from the public, the building has become an antenna that reverberated expectations and reactions to the accomplishment of Dold.
The event has been realised in collaboration with We Are Social wearesocial.it
Topography is a project that uses dance, projections, film and music to explore global and personal landscapes of body, thought, space, and time. It implements the use of an exciting new body-mapping, projection technology, and has been a true collaboration of effort and love. ‘Topography’ is a term used in map making. Often Topographies are detailed descriptions, drawings and 3D representations of the physical features of a place or region, especially in the form of contour maps. Topography, the film, seeks to explore this idea with the landscape of the human body. Much like navigating terrain, the body and the physical perimeters of the space alternately take on the function of map and means, path and pathos, guide and guided.

Video Projection Mapping is an exciting new projection technique that can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software is used to warp and mask the projected image to make it fit perfectly on irregularly shaped screens. When done right, the end result is a dynamic projection installation that transcends ordinary video projection. The goal of this site is to compile examples of impressive uses of video mapping techniques.
"Each art has its own medium and that medium is especially fitted for one kind of communication. Each medium says something that cannot be uttered as well or as completely in any other tongue." --John Dewey
