A group from the Netherlands called NuFormer Digital Media has created a powerful projection system that interfaces dynamic and playful graphics with architecture. We’ve already seen how cool projected art can be when the interactive dog Sniff was projected onto the storefront of an East Market Street building. Imagine a building or even an entire city that comes alive after nightfall.
The temporal nature of such an installation is interesting on an urban level as well as it gets people onto the streets at night and provides a great benefit to actually living in the city (assuming the lights don’t keep you up). (via GOOD)
Apparently, projection art has really come a long way in recent years, besides the example above and Sniff, another group in Austria has created a sort of “digital wallpaper” that adds interest to the evening sidewalk-scape. See the video over here (via NotCot).
With Light Up Louisville just around the corner, how great would City Hall and Metro Hall look with such an installation? It’s not too late for 2010.
