quite an amazing video of a projection on form technique by visual designers who developed the above “augmented sculpture,” working in both 3-d and time-based media, presented to a public audience for the first time Grosse8/Lichtfront in january at the interior design week cologne. the documentation of the installation is now online, and though we know it’s not an animated rendering or a processing script, our brains aren’t quite convinced.
the sculpture comprises of two parts: a 2.5m tall wooden sculpture that acts as a screen for a precisely registered 360° projection system. lichtfront elaborates in the comment section of vimeo:
we did it with 4 projectors, placed around the object. the graphics were done in afterEffects. we worked in a composition that was [cut] into the 4 output movies at the end. then we played the 4 videos on 2 computer, synchronised by a vvvv patch.
