When Architecture Meets Visuals – Introducing Kasia

The Hum

Part two of our series introducing the Masterclass Vol. 1 applicants is here. Meet Kasia, a Polish architect by trade who has been working as a VJ creating generative visuals for clubs, festivals and gigs.

Kasia has always found projection mapping interesting, and she had some previous experience but she never knew how to take it further, so when Limelight Academy popped up on her Facebook feed, she instantly knew she had to apply. “It was the best opportunity to combine two of my passions: architecture and visuals,” she says. Masterclass made Kasia realize what projection mapping actually is, and helped her understand that an artwork of this scale and the varied audiences require a very different approach to the visuals she worked on previously.

“I really appreciate the work Limelight has put into this program. We had the opportunity to follow through the process from the initial talks with clients, through planning and the production of the videos to seeing the final result at the Factory Light Festival in Norway,” Kasia says. For someone who used to work with live and adjustable visuals, preparing the finished artwork before the show was a big challenge for Kasia. “Csaba provided us with the tools that help me a lot to test and understand how my ideas would look on the silos,” she says.

Seeing all the hard work she put into her project come alive on a building of such scale was the most rewarding experience for Kasia. After the nerve-wrecking moments before her mapping started, Kasia was relieved seeing how positively the audience reacted to her artwork. “It was a great experience being amongst the crowd and watch my first work of this scale together with the audience. I’m also grateful for the feedback I received from the audience and other artists,” she says. “I would recommend Limelight Academy to everyone. The knowledge the team had shared with us, and the talented and dedicated people I’d met made it absolutely worthwhile.”

And Kasia’s advice to the future Masterclass applicants? “Do not hesitate, apply! Limelight Academy is the perfect combination of good laughs and hard work, and is the best environment for learning. Don’t be afraid to ask questions – they will all be answered by the experienced team of Limelight.” Thanks for being with us Kasia, it was a pleasure!

Next up in the series is Casber, Creative Director and Founder of a multimedia solution studio in Macau.

Listen, Learn and Do Your Best – Meet Soma

Secrets of the Universe

As Masterclass Vol. 2 is well under its way, we look back at Limelight Academy’s first program and introduce you the talented applicants, who will tell you about their views on Limelight Academy and the highs and lows of Masterclass Vol 1. We start the series off by introducing Soma, a Hungarian motion graphic designer.

Soma is a full-time motion graphics designer who didn’t have much experience with 3d projection mapping before but he has always been fascinated by this form of art. When Limelight announced their first Masterclass, he knew he had to jump on the opportunity. “I’ve been admiring Limelight’s work for a while, and I knew this was my chance to learn from one of the best artists of this field,” he says. Well, thanks Soma, we are flattered!

For someone with little experience in projection mapping, seeing his own work admired by thousands of people in a country he’s never been to, Masterclass Vol. 1 was a pretty epic experience for Soma. Learning the steps of the creative process and putting his ideas into a tangible concept proved to be the most challenging for him. “Csaba helped a lot and I learned how to translate my ideas into a 3d mapping project. I wish we could have more time with Viktor, his vast experience in projection mapping seemed like an endless source of information,” says Soma.

Seeing his work viewed by so many people at once was one of the most satisfying experiences according to him. And this is what Limelight Academy is about. We give these young and talented artist the time and space to create something beautiful. “I really enjoyed the whole journey of Masterclass Vol 1. I’m grateful for the things I’ve learned, the people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made,” says Soma.

And what is Soma’s advice to the future Masterclass applicants? “Listen and learn, they guys will be dropping serious knowledge bombs.” Thanks, Soma – we are proud of your journey!

Next up in the series is Kasia, an architect from Poland. Stay tuned!

Size Doesn’t Always Matter / Limelight x Gabriel Schama

Limelight Projection Mapping and Gabriel Schama Studios are proud to announce Cathedral of Thieves, a collaboration of intricate wood art and stunning video mapping. Recently premiered in Los Angeles, this limited edition art installation is available for exhibition at festivals, art museums and galleries.

Cathedral of Thieves is brought to life by the projection mapping artwork of Limelight, and with that, a new art form was born. Instead of a big-scale mapping piece for a huge building, this time it’s all about tiny details. And it works! Oh, man, it works perfectly. The video of the artwork went viral pretty fast, appearing on art, design and visual culture profiles like Colossal.

Oakland-based artist Gabriel Schama, renowned for his work in laser-cut plywood, is the creator of Cathedral of Thieves. Densely layered forms twist, intersect, and overlap, resulting in compositions that are precise and expressive. Over the past five years, Gabriel has pushed the detail in his work to a level yet unseen in the laser-cut medium. His genre-defining work can be found in collections around the world.

Cathedral of Thieves is available for purchase, as a limited edition of 13. The physical structure is over five feet tall, measuring 42 inches wide by 62 inches tall. The accompanying mapped video sequence is more than two and half minutes of precise, luminous magic. Get yours today!

Please email hello@gabrielschama.com for purchase inquiries.

Limelight in the Limelight

It’s the second time already, and it still moves me. I was so overwhelmed with gratefulness and happiness looking at my screen, seeing the 72 applications from 26 countries, and the enthusiasm you all shared. We have applicants that have a vast amount of experience, and are winners of mapping contests that the Academy aims at offering an alternative for. That’s just a-m-a-z-i-n-g. It’s fucking exhausting, but I kinda want to have a Masterclass every month. Every week. As often as we can. The overwhelming reaction from the scene and the community is proof that this is what we have to do, this is something that you all missed and are happy to have. We are happy to provide you with this opportunity, and we are going to push this as far as we can.

“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one” – Meet Viktor Vicsek

In current usage, the above phrase is usually meant sarcastically. Calling someone a “jack of all trades” implies that they aren’t very skillful in any of the areas in which they claim expertise, their knowledge or skills are superficial rather than comprehensive. However, the phrase was formerly intended as a compliment, meaning that a person is a generalist rather than a specialist, versatile and adept at many things. That’s how I see Viktor. He was among the very first ones out there working with projection mapping in the 90s, and man he slays! Animation, light installation, technical details of all the equipment that exist, and millions of hacks you use when budgets pose a challenge – he always has an idea. I would say he’s a polymath, but he would hate that. I’m not sure he would even be chuffed to be part of this website. Read more

Limelight of a Psychedelic Tribal Gathering

O.Z.O.R.A. Festival takes place in a beautiful valley surrounded by forests and corn fields in an agricultural area in Dádpuszta, Hungary. The main dancefloor is situated in a magical valley surrounded by hills from three sides and facing the sunrise. The rest of the festival is happening all around in the valley and the hills around it. Amazing buildings were built from logs and wood that have been added through the years. It’s “[a] universe of openness and togetherness where we can evolve towards becoming one with cosmic energies, with nature, with consciousness, with wholeness through dance, trance, creation, invention, transformation and peace. [A] playground where we learn to share and care, to express and connect, to create and heal, to unify and beautify the world around us and in us.” Yea, it’s pure magic.

Limelight Academy / Why?

“Education should be free – work should be paid for”

There is a growing number of mapping contests all around the world with different structures and money prize pools. What is common in almost all of them is that they only pay artists for their work in case they win the contest. There’s no professional help or specific education for projection mapping that is for experienced animators entering the contests who have no or limited knowledge and experience in projection mapping, especially outdoors and in large scale.
