Projection Mapping Turns This Palace Into A Brilliant 3D Light Show
Sep 4, 2015
At its best, the art form allows technicians to create augmented realities that rival anything you'd see on the silver screen, and this projection from Germany's Palace of Karlsruhe is as good as it gets.
For 15 minutes, the palace morphs into swirling balls of energy, science fiction steampunk automatons, blasting Tesla Coil, pillars of fire, and beyond. Set to a beautiful musical score this projection program is a breathtaking example of how projection mapping can turn buildings into morphing art spaces.
Video mapping is the art of projecting film footage onto irregularly shaped objects to create brilliant effects. Disney famously introduced millions to the concept on their original Haunted Mansion ride, but in the decades since that ride's debut the technology has grown exponentially.
