Bending the Everyday – Neil & Kris
In this project, we aim to create a projection map onto an “everyday” object to change its appearance and alter its perceived meaning, purpose, or value. This is a collaboration between Neil Liu and Kris Li.
Together we brainstormed and created two lists of actions and daily objects we’re interested in. By picking out of a hat, we decided to create the visual journey of a minion running through obstacles by transporting through the hoop of glasses.
In this second iteration, we hope to embed the “journey” in a daily setting and create a more natural narrative.
We chose the kitchen on D12 and incorporated the paper towel dispenser, a chair, and a water bottle.
The Project setup was divided into two parts, projected with 2 projectors:
- Background (MadMapper): Video textures and Sound Visualization
- Foreground (Keynote): GIF and Masking
The imagery shown on the surfaces are sound visualizations generated by the background soundtrack.
