Building with light is:
An unprecedented live experience.
An interactive art project associating VR & projection mapping to transform buildings into gigantic artworks.
A large scale demonstration of how technology can create a unique art form accessible to a larger audience, both live and on social media.
An international performance engaging cities and artists beyond politics and cultural differences.
An inspiration for contemporary creation and innovation, using its role in social cohesion, sustainable tourism and local employment.
Building with light is an ambitious cross disciplinary collaboration between visual artists. VR programmers & projection mapping specialists. Our team is made of:
Derek Proud & Landia Egal: Original idea
Landia Egal & Laura Bardey (Tiny Planets) – Production Management
Grégoire Parain & Amaury La Burthe (Novelab) – Technical Direction
Cédric Péri & Paola Ciucci (Danny Rose) – Art Direction
How does it work?
Artists step into the VR world and are presented with a 3D model of the building,
They have access to dynamic painting brushes and effects to re-imagine its facade,
We live-stream their creations as a live projection mapped on the real building next to them, broadcasted on Youtube, Facebook and Twitch.
