Two new work-examples from the two artists mentioned in the previous post.
Check this short documentary by Dane Luttik. It´s a good starting point to dive into the world of projection mapping.
Free Art and Technology (FAT), OpenFrameworks and the Graffiti Resarch Lab: Tempt1, Evan Roth, Chris Sugrue, Zach Lieberman,Theo Watson and James Powderly have teamed-up with a legendary LA graffiti writer, publisher and activist, named TEMPTONE. Tempt1 was diagnosed with ALS in 2003, a disease which has left him almost completely physically paralyzed… except for his eyes. This international team is working together to create a low-cost, open source eye-tracking system that will allow ALS patients to draw using just their eyes. The long-term goal is to create a professional/social network of software developers, hardware hackers, urban projection artists and ALS patients from around the world who are using local materials and open source research to creatively connect and make eye art.
The 2010 edition of the Mapping Festival held in Geneva, Switzerland brought over 10,000 people in 10 days from all across the globe, it has become the largest specialized international event and represents the work of artist who share a passion for real time images.
The festival comprises everything from lectures, conferences, live a/v performances, workshops, exhibitions, video installations, vjcontest and crazy parties with live DJ/VJ sets.
It was the introduction of madmapper wich provides a simple and easy tool for mapping projections, demystifying the process and allowing the artist to focus on creating content.
It runs on syphon and can be use with Modul8, Quartz Composer, VDMX 5, OpenFrameworks, MaxMsp / Jitter, Processing (soon), Resolume, Isadora.
Just one example of the great performances by “Anti VJ” at the Nuit Blanche Bruxelles. Produced by Crea Composite & Anti VJ. The Visuals were produced by Yannick Jacquet (Legoman), Jérémie Peeter (Shirü) and Joanie Lemercier (crustea), each of them does great projections as well – don´t miss to have a look at their websites!
Projection bombing in Rio, march 2007, Liana Brazil and Russ Rive. They use live drawings and simple animations, simple but nice.
Some fresh stuff from TXT-healing (Taken from his website: “TXTUal Healing is an interactive public theater piece. It looks at the cell phone as a device not just to remove oneself from a physical space, but to interact with and explore it.”) He travelled to Romania in June. Find pictures for that trip on his website.
The Graffitti Research Lab L.A.S.E.R. Tag, going BIG! Find clips, pictures, information and Links to more on their Website.
“Sleepwalkers” done by Doug Aitken at MOMA, New York. This nighttime installation comprises eight large-scale moving images projected around the Museum and on its facades, enlivening the architecture with the nocturnal journeys of five city inhabitants…Have a look at the Website, for more pictures like the one below from dolce vita rachel try flickr.
It is a large-scale public art project commissioned by the East Midlands Development Agency in England. Thousands of “video-portraits” taken in Derby, Leicester, Lincoln, Northampton and Nottingham will be projected onto the ground of the main squares and pedestrian thoroughfares of these cities. At first, the portraits will not be visible because the space will be flooded by white light coming from the world’s most powerful projector.
As people walk around the area, their shadow will be cast on the floor, revealing the video-portraits. The short video sequences begin with the subjects in a still position turned away from the camera. As they appear within pedestrians’ shadows, their bodies move and their heads turn to look straight at the pedestrian, potentially giving rise to an interesting range of interactions.
When a shadow moves away from a portrait, the portrait likewise reacts by losing interest and looking away. With the assistance of a large team of developers, ArtReach production and Stage Right staging.

Light attack – by Daniel Sauter. The Project started in 2004.
Light Attack is a media artwork, as well as social experiment, performed in public urban spaces. While driving through the city, an animated virtual character is projected onto the cityscape, exploring places ‘to go’ and places ‘not to go’, according to the popular Lonely Planet travel guide.
