In January 2010 the Cologne based design agencies Grosse8 and Lichtfront presented their cross-media installation “Augmented Sculpture” for the first time to a public audience.
The core of the installation is a 2,5m tall wooden sculpture that builds the screen for a 360° projection with virtual content. The projection constantly augments the sculptures outside within a 2:32 min. long, dramaturgically structured edit of video content to a track by musician Jon Hopkins.
The sculpture becomes a mirror of changing realities. As a result, a kind of real virtuality arises to confront virtual reality.
We did it with 4 projectors, placed around the object. The graphics were done in AfterEffects. We worked in a composition that was [cut] into the 4 output movies at the end. Then we played the 4 videos on 2 computer, synchronised by a vvvv patch.
