AntiVJ made this light and sound installation called “Tour des Convoyeurs” during the Mutek festival in Montreal. We’ve seen video projections on buildings before, but the look and feel of this one is very nice.

Night Lights

January 6th, 2010

Night Lights is the most amazing interactive projection on a building I have ever seen. YesYesNo were asked to turn the Auckland Ferry Building into an interactive playground for the viewers. There were 3 different types of interaction – body interaction on the two stages, hand interaction above a light table, and phone interaction with the tracking of waving phones. That input was then used to manipulate 6 different scenes. Just watch the video and you’ll know why this is a very impressive project. Here are the names of some of the people involved, some might sound familiar if you reading today and tomorrow: Joel Gethin Lewis, Zach Lieberman, Pete Hellicar, Kyle McDonald, Todd Vanderlin, Daito Manabe.

Browser Jockey

November 10th, 2009

Gijs Gieskens is a Dutch VJ and musician who likes to make his own tools, both on the hardware and the software side. Browser Jockey is one of his projects, he wrote a set of browser scripts which he uses to generate visuals to live music. Gijs developed another tool to use with Browser Jockey: the Beat Converter. This is a little piece of hardware which translates live mucis to key presses and trigger the Browser Jockey scripts. This video explains it all.

Video Painting

October 22nd, 2009

Yes, we’ve seen enough graffiti-light-painting movies and pictures. But this little concept by Sweat Shoppe is quite nice. They developed a technique to project video footage on a canvas, vitually painted by a LED-lit paint roller.
What? Just watch the video.

Red Chair is a video – light – projection – installation by Teemu Määttänen. It is basically an animation that is mapped onto a chair. But the effect is minimal but still really nice. Here you can find some similar projects.
