Projection Mapping Brings Classical Statues to Life

Rachel Pincus in PSKF writes about the work Studio BK has done projection mapping imagery onto statues in the Fine Arts Museum of Lyon.

"The Mirage Festival of art and innovation in Lyon invited BK’s head creative, Arnaud Pottier, to design frameworks specifically for three sculptures at the museum, the Odalisque by James Pradier (1841), First funeral by Antoine Etex, and PerseusSlaying the Gorgon by Laurent-Honore Maqueste.

"The finished renderings look at first glance like patches of dappled light from an unknown source falling on the sculptures from the small projector in front of them. This light merely highlights their contours in strange ways. But after a few moments, a knowing eye rolls toward the viewer and begins to blink. The feeling is a bit darker than Night at the Museum, but it leads you to question how great sculpture works, proving the illusion of life as well as things that are more ineffable."

You can see images of the fascinating and a bit scary exhibition here and video below.
