WTF is this madness?
This is a piece I created for an Edinburgh art event in September 2011.
I used the opportunity to experiment with animation (in particular stop-motion and time-lapse), video editing, and projection mapping.
Projection Mapping – that’s always done on buildings right?
Buildings are commonly used in projection mapping, but the technique can be applied to any objects or spaces.
My set-up was quite simple, projecting onto a wall of frames, with a row of books underneath.
Did you create the images yourself?
All the imagery you see in the pieces was created from my own photography – about 300 photographs per piece.
The photos were taken and then stitched together to create the animated objects. These objects were then manipulated digitally, to be synced with the audio track.
Was there any programming involved?
There was no programming needed for the main part of the piece, but the light projected onto the books below the frames is live sound spectrum data from the audio track.
This data was processed and turned into a visualisation using Flash.
