Projection mapping onto moving objects
Projection mapping, i.e. video projection perfectly fitted onto 3-dimensional objects, has developed in recent years into a popular technology in art, architecture and design. The next stage of this technology was researched by Dipl.-Ing. Gerrit Kress in his final year project Projection Mapping auf bewegte Objekte [Projection Mapping onto moving objects]. To this end, he developed a prototype with the Cologne design agency GROSSE 8, that made it possible to map onto a rotating object. He used the software vvvv and the Arduino development platform. Gerrit Kress was invited to hold a workshop about this prototype at the Node Forum 2013, the most important congress relating to the software vvvv.
The final exam was supervised as part of the Audio and Video Engineering program by University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf professor Dr. Karin Welkert-Schmitt and IMM professor Dr. Heike Sperling.
