I already posted on of Valbuenas’ projects back in 2009. Now I went back to his website and found more interesting projects, all of them making intelligent use of lighting and projection techniques. The video down here is one of his latest works called “Time Linings“.
Mr. Valbuena has been deeply engaged in the practice of projecting on things with their shape in mind. From the earlier gallery deployed work to his brilliant large scale urban projections like those at the Hague City Hall, he clearly has a way with light and the urban space.
Back in 2004 Marc Hoepfel from Germany did some nice projections during the Olympic Games 2004 in the city of Athens.
“Lightstrive is a projection in the street. A building is lit by a fast moving light source which seems to bounce in front of the facade. Although it´s light makes jutties and balconies cast dancing shadows which keep sheering in changing directions there is no moving light source to be seen. The only real light source is a video projector opposite the building.”…read more on his website.
