Robotics, Projection-Mapping, and Performance combine in this fantastic example of the art of technology.
Bot and Dolly, a San Francisco-based engineering studio, put together this live performance that utilizes robotic screens, projection-mapping, and choreographed performers filmed on camera. ‘Box’ is a visually striking and groundbreaking display of technology that excites the mind and furthers the evolution of projection-mapping.
“Box” explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.
While the obvious art applications are impressive, so too are the scientific aspects when applied to geek culture. Who hasn’t wanted to jump into a Star Fleet holodeck, or work on a project with a true 3D interface like Tony Stark? What projects like ‘Box’ continue to do is push the limitations of our current technology to reach that fantastical level of tech that we can only imagine.
‘Box’ is brought to us by The Creators Project, which we will be showcasing over the next few weeks. You can check that out at the link provided.
