In a gesture to draw attention to the massive deforestation ravaging the Amazon rainforest, French photographer and street artist Philippe Echaroux projected the faces of indigenous Brazilians onto the forest’s trees. The projected images demonstrate the deep connection between the rainforest and its inhabitants, acknowledging the need for the preservation of their home and resources.
The photographs focus on the Suruí tribe of Brazil which is led by Chief Almir Surui Narayamoga and was asked by the Brazilian government to help replant their section of the rainforest in order to ensure and protect its longevity. More

Projected onto the ceiling of Saint-Eustache Church in Paris, Voûtes Célestes is a work by Miguel Chevalier that turned the ancient chapel into the backdrop for a constantly morphing sky chart produced in real time. Cycling through 35 different colored networks, the ceiling glowed with each successive pattern, highlighting the grand architecture that laid below the swirling universes above.
The work, accompanied by musical improvisations played by Baptiste-Florian Marle-Ouvrard on the organ, was produced for Nuit Blanche 2016 on the first of October. More

Wading calf-deep into what looks like an infinite pool of water, visitors to Tokyo’s Odaiba Minna no YUME-TAIRIKU 2016 festival walk slowly through teamLab‘s (previously) latest light mapping installation. A shallow pool of water is completely surrounded by mirrored ceiling and walls, highlighting the psychedelic nature of the thousands of computer generated koi fish that are projected around the viewer’s feet. The fish change speeds as they navigate the waters, often crashing into observers and bursting into scattered flowers upon contact. More

Andante” was created by MIT’s Tangible Media Group as a way to promote an understanding of the way that music is rooted in the body, an experience that transcends more than just the ears. The group, led by Professor Hiroshi Ishii, gives physical form to abstract digital information, providing delightful visuals to more complicated processes.
In the animated experiment, human and animal characters were programmed to stroll along the keys of a keyboard, playing notes as they walk or dance from one key to the next. More

The folks over at Skullmapping created this fun series of animation projections that portray a miniature chef (Le Petit Chef) laboring to cook a meal atop a real dining table. Each clip is mapped perfectly to the table setting to create the convincing illusion the tiny chef is interacting with everything on it, and some objects, like a fork, are incorporated directly into the animation itself. So far they’ve made two: Bouillabaisse and another where he whips together a grilled steak. More

Pay attention folks, interactive public art doesn’t get much better than this. Artist duo Ygor Marotta and Ceci Soloaga of VJ Suave designed these pheonomenal audiovisual tricycles lovingly called “Suaveciclos” that they use to project original animations on almost any nearby public surface. The São Paulo-based artists pack these hefty trikes to the gills with all manner of batteries, laptops, speakers, and high-powered projectors so they can roll through the night with crowds in tow as their animations spring to life against the urban backdrop.

While we’ve seen many examples of projection mapping on the sides of buildings or other relatively flat surfaces in an attempt to add depth or dimension, it seems photographers and digital artists are getting progressively more innovative as the technology continues to evolve. Last week we saw a commendable dance performance making use of projection mapping, and now photographer Tarek Mawad and animator Friedrich van Schoor just spent six weeks embedded in nature to create Bioluminescent Forest.

Romania-based architecture collective visualSKIN arrived at the Amsterdam Light Festival with a splash this year, installing a three-dimensional projection of a 17-century ship against a backdrop of water. Titled ‘Ghost Ship,‘ the installation makes use of two intersecting images projected onto perpendicular curtains of water that can be viewed from multiple angles. The piece is in reference to a Dutch East India Company ship, The Amsterdam, that was wrecked in a storm during its maiden voyage to Batavia in 1749. More
