For the Nuit Blanche 2010 festival, 1024 Architecture designed a 20 tons scaffolding structure built on top of the Saint Louis Bridge, downtown Paris. Part of this project was included in the initial prototype that was used for developing the MadMapper. The show consisted of a 12 minute looping audio reactive visual set.
I had planned to post this tomorrow but this was such good thing that I could not hesitate and posted a day in advance. The company of Gael Abegg Gauthey, the Annecy based VisionSonore, were commissioned by TBWA to create a mapping display for the MINI Cooper store in Paris. The campaign is called ‘Live’ and highlights all of the activities that can be done when they buy themselves a MINI. Gael confirms that for this particular installation they used three beamers, two laptops and (appropriately enough) a Mac Mini. From the module end, the setup was rather straight forward, using the Paint module to create masks and the SlideShow module to run through the clips.
While we are in entering the hibernation of caves of winter this is the perfect time to start planning what we will do to celebrate the return of Spring. Those projects you have been working on for many months should be given a proper public airing. And just now the deadlines for two of these opportunities have sprung.
Most readers of this blog know that the birthplace and home of Modul8 is also home to the Mapping Festival. Next years edition is now set on the calendar for May 6th through the through the 16th. Unlike previous years where we required applicants to send in DVDs we have converted the entire process into an electronic one. Instead of having to mess around with a DVD we require that you submit your project using the now ubiquitous Vimeo. If you do not already have an account with Vimeo obtaining one is free of charge. The time to submit your project is now and the deadline is January 4th, 2010.
Slated for around the same time as the Mapping Festival is the Avit affiliated Vision´R in Paris. More didactic, Vision`Rs mission is seeking “radical *here and now* live images.” The initial proposal deadline, to be followed up with more extensive information, should be submitted via email by December 10th with the following information:
Name: (group/artist) + number of participants
Contact: email + cell phone
City + State:
A short presentation txt about intention and content.
Pictures (if possible): photographs, video
Proposal type : (performance, speech, workshop, showcase…)
Send all of the above to: vision-r(AT)reseaux-creation.org (Mail object “vision’r 2010″).
Personally I always look forward to seeing all of the submissions. It is kind of like receiving lots of gifts from people all over the world.
