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

Glowing Bulbs in collaboration with the Leo Kuelbs Collection and John Ensor Parker present “The Diamond Sky,” a multi-piece, video-mapping event. Presented to a small, private audience in April of 2014, “The Diamond Sky” was created in celebration of the launch of the new Tiffany Blue Book Collection at NYC’s Guggenheim Museum. The DNA of the brand and New York City itself are intertwined, crystalline mirrors give way to dynamic and colorful patterns, familiar, yet never in a context quite like this. Light reflects and refracts, geometric patterns evolve, spin, and explore the outer parapets of Frank Lloyd Wright’s signature inclined path, spiraling towards infinity. Somewhere through the oculus above: “The Diamond Sky.”
Strandlines is a dynamically-generated art installation. Digital waves rise and fall across 400 pounds of sand. The installation’s water mark corresponds to local tides, and no two waves are ever the same.

In 2014 Integrated Visions was hired by The One Club to design an immersive projection-mapped backdrop for The One Club’s Creative Week. Integrated Visions worked closely with the event’s producers, Overland Entertainment, to execute the project. Four 12,000 lumen projectors were used to map the entire backdrop as well as part of the set, creating a massive dynamic surface for which Integrated Visions produced 17 separate animated scenes correlating to different parts of the event. The One Club’s Award Show honors the very best amongst an industry that has been a driving force behind the growth of projection mapping as a medium, and as such Integrated Visions could not have been more honored to use that same medium to visually transform such a landmark event in the most vibrant way possible.
First of its kind (that we’re aware of) live musical orchestra accompanying a projection map. Done last August by the Media design team at Landor Associates to welcome new conductor Louis Langrée. 40,000 people showed up to this free event.
The ‘320° Licht’ installation of URBANSCREEN uses the cathedral-like beauty of the Gasometer Oberhausen as the starting point for a fascinating game with shapes and light.
Within a radius of 320 degrees graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high inside wall of the Gasometer.
The observer experiences the interplay between real and virtual space, in which the Gasometer seems to dissolve into its own, filigree structures and yet finally always reverts to its clear shape. ’320° Licht’ is achieved with kind project support from Epson Germany.
With approx. 20,000 square meters of area played upon, the installation is among the world’s largest and technically most sophisticated interior projections - interconnecting 21 powerful projectors to one projection screen.
Duration (loop): approx. 22 min.
'320° Licht' is part of the exhibition ‘The Appearance of Beauty’ - the variety of beauty in art that is shown inside the Gasometer. The Gasometer Oberhausen opens this exhibition from 11th April until 30th December.
Please find detailed information on Gasometer Oberhausen (gasometer.de).
Moment Factory worked with Donald Glover – better known as Childish Gambino – to create video content for the multi-talented artist’s latest tour, a fully scripted show about reality and illusion in the Internet age. Collaborating closely with Glover, production manager Chad Taylor and lighting designer Sarah Landau, Moment Factory helped develop the script into a storyboard, and produced all visual content for the tour.

Hand-drawn sketches were the starting point for the installation grapheme. They delineate the artist’s initial creative idea and serve as the basis for the films projected, as well as for the form of the projection sculpture itself. These sketches are translations of memories and associations, which the artist, like in a diary, has captured from the most varied places and stations of life.
In the amorphous abstract films, the structural state of these sketches is translated into a temporal flow of images. Here, for example events from the past fade away and become connected in continual transformation to new experiences and impressions. The moving film image preserves this reconstruction process, without ever indicating an end-state.
The organic projection sculpture frees the film from the dogmatic limitations of rectangular silver screens and monitors. These delicate, laser-cut tissues float in the architectural space, light spills over them, and they come to life before the viewers’ eyes.
Mirrors reflect the projected film image back onto viewers and allow them to become part of the work in the form of their own reflected image. In the multiple layers of the work, observers’ personal memories, their own reflection, that of the museum environment, the installation and the daylight become bound together into a situational work of art.
