Thank you to all of the artists involved. Very special thank you to DWP Live who provided all of the projectors for the exhibition.
The Lumiphonic Creature Choir ~ by Synarcade
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.
Architecture as a Technicolor Canvas | ‘Emergence’ by Obscura Digital at the ExploratoriumTheCreatorsProject
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. Projection Mapping utilizes specialized software to create a projected image that perfectly fits any desired surface, including irregularly shaped screens, 3D 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.

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
