Amazing Installation Tech-Art from Klip Collective #ArtTuesday
Klip Collective uses projection, construction, and both natural and built environments to make immersive art installations around the world. Here’s more from JUXTAPOZ:
I eventually grew bored with photo and video and started experimenting with video sculpture and live video performance. This led to heavy usage of projectors and once again, I grew bored with the flat rectangle of video so I started experimenting with projecting onto space instead of a rectangle within them. At some point in the late 90s, I developed an odd and janky way to draw mattes onto the spaces through the projection, which would then become what I would call a video map to use in the design of the visuals. And projection mapping was born! I have seven patents on the process (more bragging rights than anything since we’ve never enforced them). This became my baby and I still love the process to this day. It was also born out of necessity. I wanted to use multiple feeds of video on multiple surfaces throughout a space, but couldn’t afford all the projectors. It’s a very efficient process! Anyway, nowadays I use it in all kinds of ways from simple 2D stuff that I do for small pieces to very complex produced projects with teams developing the pieces that are 3D and generative, interactive, you name it. I even started utilizing this approach to lighting design (LED pixel mapping) and a few years ago we figured out how to leverage my video library and mixing skills onto actual programming-led lighting fixtures. It’s wild and always challenging. I don’t get bored anymore!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
