Factory Light Festival is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to see our Limelight Academy Projection Mapping Masterclass applicants showing their artworks to a crowd of locals and art fans from around the world on the amazing concrete silos of the beautiful city of Slemmestad.
“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.
Silver A’ Design Award for Interconnection
The A’ Design Award and Competition is the biggest competition for designers and creatives. No category for us? No problem. Limelight Projection Mapping won the Silver A’ Design Award in the category of Lightning Products and Lightning Projects Design as the only projection mapping project, competing with lightning design works.
What an amazing start of 2017
We’re just amazed reading a blog post from Paul Roberts on Creative Bloq about the 14 best mapping demos that will blow your mind! Guess who’s first? Hell yeah it’s our Interconnection piece created for iMapp! It just feels amazing to be selected among such great video mapping artists. So many great artworks in locations like the Sidney Opera House or the Sagrada Familia. Another important part is what the author thinks about projection mapping. After so many years I can still rarely see people getting the point of that form of art so well.
“Often site-specific, the best work enhances rather than effaces the architecture it’s projected onto. The sheer scale can be breathtaking and the illusion of everyday and static objects around us becoming animate and playfully reworked can be incredibly exciting. Just look at the expressions on the audience’s faces during a projection and you see an almost childlike glee.”
We couldn’t have said it better. Thank you Creative Bloq!
