Ryan P. Griffin is doing live projection paintings. Taken from his website: “Akin to graffiti, the most direct way to mark or message, Griffin creates freestyle projection ‘paintings’ that unfold and respond to the location they are created yet leave no visible trace. Like a poem, a story told and shared through tangible light lasting only for moments. Whether in front of an audience or a camera taking time-lapse animation, the viewer is brought into experiencing the dynamic creative process.”

Mutek_10 – international festival of digital creativity and music at Montreal, Canada features a series of urban projections.
“MUTEK_10 inaugurates EXTRA_MUROS, a series of outdoor projects using urban Montreal as a canvas for play and projection
With this endeavor, MUTEK reaffirms its role as trampoline to propel visionary artists into the streets of the city and into the realm of new and uninitiated audiences, many of whom will see Montreal in a new light as a result.
This first tier of local and international talent invites you to see the city as a platform punctuated by their monumental creativity. Their work will be on display throughout the festival, from Montreal’s Old Port all the way up the Saint Laurent Boulevard’s annual sidewalk sale. “
Installations run from Wednesday May 27 to Sunday May 31 – from dusk to 3 am”
So if you´re from canada or anywhere near, or you have the money to go there you definitely should! I would love to!
The folks at Urban Screen are onto some of the most fluid and architecturally sensitive projections around.
In their words:
“The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture – the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers “Galerie der Gegenwart”. Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves – describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself.”
For an excellent example see
“Ride along with Ali Momeni and his bicycle fleet of mobile video projectors that transform public spaces into eye-popping sound and light shows. Ali’s group, ‘Art on Wheels’ brings ephemeral art to the masses by modifying vendor carts into portable projection systems that can roll to a site, set up and illuminate city walls at a moment’s notice, then whisk away into the night. Also, see the first projector, the “magic lantern,” that’s still in use today.”…taken from vimeo
I really like this one! Especially because it was made live. This is what he wrotes: “This is a short video I made yesterday. The idea is to project some live visuals on a building, and also play with the existing elements (doors, windows..) and light up elements separatly, in rythm with the music. Not perfectly in time, but this is live ! :)” Movie and more here.
