Out Of Darkness (Virtual Light 1)

Out Of Darkness 600x317

A Projection Mapping installation staged at the Phoenix gallery in Brighton as part of Alex May’s Painting With Light event in December 2014.

There is a very convincing illusion here of a light moving around inside the room and illuminating the piece. However there is only the one projector, and the effect of this absence is disjointing. Some see it as creepy, some as beautiful. (But few are left unimpressed.)

note:
The live piece is creamy white and free from any of the flicker or artifacts visible in the video. The music was added for this edit. The piece itself is silent.

This installation has been shown at Painting With Light, London Decompressed (Burning Man), Gallery 286, Art in Flux, EXP Hackney.

Note to arts curators:
Much of Out Of Darkness can be prepped off-site. But because the specific geometry of any venue it is important here that the final assembly and filming needs to be done on site. Providing that rigging the projector is straightforward, this usually takes half a day.
The venue does not have to be blacked out, but the darker it is the better.
I would welcome the opportunity to create a much larger version of this!
