All creatives are endeavouring to make real-world happenings later this year — and I see Projection Mapping as a way of creating memorable and safe real-world experiences this summer.”
What is Projection Mapping?
Projection-Mapping — beaming images onto three-dimensional objects has become possible through the development of high-powered digital projectors. Plus, 3D scanning software that allows Artist and Designer to digitise real-world objects into a virtual canvas for painting and storytelling with light. Unlike cinema, Projection Mapping — often called Video Mapping, Augmented Spatial Reality — takes a distinctive approach. Rather than projecting onto a flat or slightly curved screen, images are beamed directly onto three-dimensional objects — creating immersive multi-sensory real-world experiences on a potentially enormous scale. Any reflective surface is your canvas, from buildings and natural landscapes to vehicles and even interiors or exhibition spaces.
