If you have been to the Pyramids or the Taj you have probably seen the Son-et-Lumiere show at night. After 50+ years, the concept is a bit dated and you had to fly for hours to go see the show.
Well, a new form of show using buildings like in video below is coming near you. The Coolist site has several examples. It has the feel of the movie “Inception” being brought to life.
Artists such as NuFormer from the Netherlands and increasingly corporate benefactors like BMW and Samsung are bringing these customized 3D shows. Some interesting factoids from NuFormer:
- When we line up several projectors we can actually project on a surface of 200 meters or more.
- A minimum distance of 35 to 40 meters is required between the building and the projector in order to get optimal results.
- Projection on modern glass buildings is not possible. The projection will actually ‘go through’ the glass.
