Projection Mapping

This relatively new artform involves creating a 3d model of an existing architectural building, and using software, mapping a animation sequence to it in such a way that the building itself seems to come to life.

Projection Mapping is used around the world for large-scale events, celebrations, anniversaries or launches.
