Every time AntiVJ’s Joanie Lemercier comes out with a new project, you can expect that it will achieve visual wonderment through color, geometry, and just the right application of tech. We recently spoke about a workshop Lemercier held at The Public gallery near Birmingham in the UK, where he taught a group of kids some of the tricks of his trade using a three-dimensional surface made from paper pyramids—a simple example with beautiful results.
You can see the breathtaking results above. The texture created by the pyramids provides a break from the typically flat screens we deal with on a daily basis. As Lemercier explains:
Every day we stare at screens. We look at cinema screens, TV screens, phone screens, and it’s always a flat, rectangular projection or a flat rectangular image. What I like with projection mapping is that you can turn anything into a display, you can take a sculpture and project colors on it and really change the way it looks.
See images of the project below.
