Obscura Digital’s Massive Projection Series Turns San Francisco’s Exploratorium Into A Technicolor Canvas

Emergence, created by the team at Obscura Digital, was the latest endeavor by the creative technology studio that had already covered the Sydney Opera House, Guggenheim Museum, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and other world-famous architectural structures in projection art of a grand scale.

Evan Dashevsky of TechHive writes: The past few decades have seen robots occupy numerous occupations once purely under the sole purview of humans. This trend towards a de-peopled workplace shows no promise of slowing down anytime soon. In fact, a new project appearing at NYC’s Tribeca Film Festival is proving that robots may have yet another role that they can take off our carbon-based hands: documentary filmmaker.

Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg on The Atlantic writes: It's a "traditional story of guy has girl, loses girl, villain gets girl, they duel, [guy] wins girl back ... but set in a bizarre parallel-universe kinda other-world,"Alan Wilkis explains when I ask him to describe his latest music video, a collaboration with director Michael Lawrence. The duel is a dance battle set on the fringe of Coney Island and our hero is played by Fabrizio Goldstein, a TV personality/actor/writer/model/rapper who goes by the name Fat Jew. The video flaunts an Instagram-style faded look, but it's real -- shot on Kodak film.

Esther Zuckerman of The Atlantic Wire writes: After a tantalizing teaser, we now have the full trailer for Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, and, boy are we intrigued. With cameos from celebs as themselves—including Coppola buddy Kirsten Dunst—and a soundtrack from Azaelia Banks and Sleigh Bells, the trailer lays on the theme of cultural-celebrity-fascination-as-young-things'-downfall hard. And, not for naught, this story—based on a real-life tale of a group of L.A. teens who steal from the rich and very famous—is about just that.

Kyle VanHemert of FastCoDesign writes: Much of the magic of projection mapping depends on precision and pre-planning. Though the facade-transforming light shows can seem spontaneous in the moment, in reality they’re the products of meticulous choreography. Which is, in part, what makes Tokyo City Symphony so cool. It’s an incredible bit of projection mapping you can control on the fly, right from your computer. The interactive music video was created by Japanese creative Tsubasa Oyagi for the 10th anniversary of the Roppongi Hills mega-complex in Tokyo. But instead of using the real building as his canvas, Oyagi had an incredibly precise, 1:1000 miniature model of the city crafted by hand. The result? A projection mapped extravaganza that turns all of Tokyo into a thumping dance party.

Tom Breihan of Stereogum writes: The crazy-exciting young British dance duo Disclosure released their new buoyant single “You & Me,” a collaboration with the singer-songwriter Eliza Doolittle, last week. And today, we get the video, a beautifully shot and edited story about a young couple traveling through Europe together. We see them making out, drinking, arguing, dancing, backflipping, getting lost, jumping into absurdly blue water, riding roller coasters, smacking each other with a dildo. It’s all just terribly romantic and inviting, and when the actual Disclosure show up near the end, it’s finally like: “Oh right, this is a music video.” Watch it below. READ THE FULL STORY HERE.
