Box from Bot & Dolly
With the fine tuned choreography of four perfectly sychronised robots this film shows the power of projection mapping. However as far as I can see there is only one privileged viewer in this space and that is the camera, from any other viewpoint the illusion cannot work so successfully, making of here. An updated quadratura. Certainly could make for stunning theatre experiences....a little like this interactive projection mapping.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQlDEPLHPyQ
Berndnaut Smilde (b. 1978) is a Dutch artist who is interested in finding where the 'inbetween' begins. He brings weather phenomena into interiors, sometimes only momentarily as with his clouds, and carefully photographs these transformed spaces. He describes the interior 'Nimbus' clouds as like a cartoon visualisation of bad luck. How much or little does it take to make an interior surreal? Is it enough to briefly question if we actually are inside as happens when a bird gets into a building? The clouds bring to mind the fantastical plans Albert Speer had for Hitler's Volkshalle (Hall of the people) that was planned to be so much larger than anything previously built that it would have its own internal weather systems and clouds.......
Maxime Delvaux and Kevin Laloux are two photographers who work in advertising and architectural photography. This project is called Box and uses Diorama's as unsettling sets for real characters. A technique they developed for their advertising work that they seem to have extended to personal projects.
