After 5 years doing this site and most of the time not posting that often I was always looking for people to help me out and join for posting. Ceci Solaga is now on board and that´s just great! She´s an active VJ and projection artist so for sure this site will become more vibrant and up to date (for more info on her just check the last post).
We also founded a new Channel on Vimeo where we post a lot of related clips while not posting everyone here on the site, so be sure to check that out, too. Now its on to Ceci on the next post, looking forward to the next months! Welcome Ceci!
Using different techniques like normal static projections and moving projections like the one done in Karoline Sobeckas work “Wildlife“ VJsuave creates a really nice MTV commercial. More Info on VJsuave here
It´s always worth checking woostercollective for street art related projects and news. The photo you see below was taken by Dani Bevervanso showing the latest large scale projection by “Tagtool”.
Explanation taken from their website:
“The Tagtool is a performative visual instrument used on stage and on the street. It serves as a VJ tool, a creative video game, or an intuitive way of creating animation.
The system is operated collaboratively by an artist drawing the pictures and an animator adding movement to the artwork with a gamepad. The design achieves virtually unlimited artistic complexity with a simple set of controls, which can be mastered even by children.”
You should definitely check their website for more pictures, projects and informations about the Tagtool.
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.”
