Projection Mapping

3D mapping or projection mapping is a technique that consists of adapting images to project them onto real surfaces, such as volumetric objects and façades.

This adaptation or mapping of images generates and optical illusion that transforms the fusion between the projected image and real surface into a new object that appears to be real.

Projection mapping can be used onto façades for opening ceremonies at big events, such as Tempo de encontros, the piece we created for La Fura del Baus and the European Capital of Culture, in Guimarães.

The results are always spectacular, as is the case with Diplopía, the work that we presented at GLOW Festival, in Amsterdam. Diplopia is an stereoscopic piece that revolves around the concept of binocular vision, that is to say, how our eyes merge two separate images to perceive a single object. Two different points of view that arise as a consequence of binocular disparity.

Or with Evolució, a piece that was first presented at the Mapping Festival of Geneva and was projected onto the façade of the Museum of Art and History.

Projection mapping can also be used on indoor exhibitions, such as the work we created with our Sala 5 project. In this case, the mapping was projected onto hundreds of dishes that covered the walls and ceiling of the room where the mapping was to be projected.
