Genius Loci Lab – Live mapping on the Bauhaus Museum, Weimar 2017

  • 17/03/2018

I’ve participated at Genius Loci Lab. We were about 10 participants, staying a week in Weimar and preparing the facade projection (live mapping) on the Bauhaus museum. The facade projection were held on the weekend 11-13 Aug, during the Genius Loci Weimar festival.

2 sets of facade projections on the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar with dj sets of Røe, mixing great tracks. We’ve already collaborate the previous year.
Friday 11 and Sat 12 Aug 2017.

What is: Facade projection or live mapping
It’s a projection mapping done live.
The mapping is prepared in advance during the week of Genius Loci Lab by defining the different areas with the architectural characteristic of the building. Also some clips are prepared just for that specific mapping.
Then the performance is live, meaning improvising by mixing the clips in sync with the music.
I’m my case, I’m controlling 2 softwares at the same time (modul8 and madmapper), triggering, layering, combining clips from the 2 softwares.
And changing the content in all the differents surfaces of the buildings (windows, main facade, edges). It’s a lot to do at the same time.
Each set was about 25 min.
