Anything Prague is on my radar these days, as most of you know, but you ALL need to see this mind-blowing artform. Click the text or the photo to go to Tor.com’s site with the video. It’s about nine minutes long and there is sound.
It’s called video mapping. Macula’s site is unfortunately all in Czech, but here’s the Google translation of their “About” page:
The macula is a project dealing with the relationship between image, sound
and audience. Trying to find new approaches to longer Business as usual
and exploring further possibilities. The goal is to find the maximum symbiosis
and satisfy the audiovisual nihilism. Video mapping is a completely new
style based on the visual arts sector VJing. This is a overlap beyond the 2D projection screen has been insufficient
and the subsequent efforts of the new concept led to the discovery of the projections
free space on any of the objects.
Video mapping using current technology available in the entertainment
industry, a whole new way. The main contents are the projections
to cooperate with the selected object and try to break the perception
perspective of the viewer. With the projector can fold and stress
any shape, line or space. Evocative play of light on the physical
object creates a new dimension and changing the view of the seemingly “normal thing”.
Everything becomes an illusion.
Now, go, watch, and when you can pick your jaw up off the floor, report back! 🙂
