Here and now

Some more mapping here…Great interactive installation with dance performance by Klaus Obermaier. Check out his Youtube profile for more videos on different projects.

“Here and now” was also shown at the Ruhrlights Festival which took place at several places around Dortmund, Germany, in September 2010. Hopefully it will happen again in 2011. In the meantime you could have a look at the many projects and installations from last year here.

Still hungry for more mapping clips? Have a look at the “Video Mapping Blog” for more stunning examples.

Nerdworking – A creative collective from Istanbul

Back in July I got a mail to a nice big scale projection done by the creative collective “Nerdworking” in Istanbul. It was called “YEKPARE” and this is their short explanation:”Yekpare” is a storyteller which narrates the 8500 year story of Istanbul. The story embraces symbols from Pagans to Roman Empire, from Byzantine Empire to Latin Empire, and finally from Ottoman Empire to Istanbul at the present day.” for more info just follow the vimeo link.

A few days ago I got another mail with a link to a pretty nice indoor mapping projection made by the same collective. Check the video below and follow the vimeo link for more info. If you like the idea of putting together real objects and projection with the help of mapping techniques like in the example below just klick on the “mapping” link in the “categories” section on the right.

Mutek 2010

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

Featured Artists are: AntiVJ, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Dominique T Skoltz and Amuse

So if you´re from canada or anywhere near, or you have the money to go there you definitely should! I would love to!

Beware of the GOD

Got a mail today from Deborah Kelly who did cloud projections with a large scale projector and the slogan “Beware of the GOD” back in 2006. She redid these projections at the Singapore Biennale 2008.

Back then the New York Times wrote: ”

SINGAPORE — Like the giant Batman sign projected into the night skies of Gotham City, the text “Beware of the God” suddenly appeared in the Singaporean sky mid-September. The 30-minute projection, repeated over several nights, was the work of Deborah Kelly, part of the opening week of the Singapore Biennale 2008.

While the Australian artist said the work had a serious subtext, warning of the confluences of religion and politics, she added that it also aimed to “entirely disarm the audience so you don’t go ‘Oh more art’; you go, ‘What is that? It’s a miracle!
