I’ve been contributing to projection-mapping.org more frequently than my own blog and it has been some time since I last posted an update. For me, it’s a good problem to have, I’ve been busy…

Over the last 2 years I’ve been piling up a collection of unedited videos from a slew of projects that I’ve had the honor to be apart of.  What were once planned to be written detailed accounts for educational purposes, may well end up becoming a flashy promo reel propelled by high energy EDM pop music.  <- Or not.

It’s what I have seen everywhere else and while I understand it, it’s not in my immediate interests to create one, or to make bids on larger corporate events.  While I may consult  on such events from time to time, believe it or not, I’m in this for the fun of it.

A few days ago I finished an update for a local automated projection mapping installation.  The goal, take a cool local coffee shop and light up the upper windows at night. The ulterior motive for this? To see what others can do with the visual space when given the opportunity.

Share the link, download the template, submit your work and it will be viewed publicly.  That’s it. https://www.evernote.com/l/Ag2xwxA4QRtJE4z8E8lZ7x8jbwDmkIZXrvM


Only time will tell what’s going to happen next with this installation, but the opportunity is something that I am excited about.  Check back in a few weeks or so as I will have a detailed update of how I made this installation possible and the simple “built-in” means of projection automation.
