Joshua Tree Renegade

 

Let magic run wild 

Our team has been outgrowing our small San Francisco office so we sent Phil and Sean to Joshua Tree to get some space (for projected augmented reality, that is). 

We wanted to see how the LFC would hold up in the wild and needless to say, we weren’t disappointed. The LFC’s scan did a great job picking up the depth and nuances of the surrounding rocks and nature. 

In the video above, Sean used some of Lightform Creator’s generative effects — Palette Trip, Ripple, and then a blending of Chromatic and Traffic Jam. When they returned to San Francisco with the footage, we couldn’t believe how magical the result was!

Conservatory of Flowers

 

We like to project on plants, ok? 

We teamed up with the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers to bring their nightlife event to another level. 

Before Lightform, complex plant life would have been intimidating subject matter for the most experienced projection artist, but these plants were no match for the power of LFC’s scanning technology. Lightform Creator is able to use the most minute details of the scan to create stunning visuals with no expertise. At one point a Koi named Frank swam through our fountain projection as it was publishing and we didn’t even have to rescan!

For the video above, we used Lightform Creator’s Ripple effect on the living wall and blended Digital Fade with Tron on the pond plants.

Summer of Light pop-up

How do you recreate the infamous Woodstock Summer of Love without psychedelics?

We worked with Nice Kicks to bring a little psych magic to their pop-up! Throughout the space, we used a series of LF2s for the smaller items on the merchandise wall along with a few LFCs on Epson 1060 projectors. Fun fact–This is the project that inspired the new Tie Dye effect in Lightform Creator!

In the video above, you’ll also see that we used Digital Fade and Iridescent Edges to make for that more “psychedelic” experience. The vibrant colors and intricate patterns that Nice Kicks gave us to play with made this project a breeze.

Fern Alley

We were invited by a local architecture firm to participate in their community event which featured various light artists to transform the space even further and encourage passerby to check out the new space.

We put one LFC and a 12k projector in the alley to add some magic to a medium-sized mural, and we rigged another LFC and 12k projector out of the parking garage to light up the freshly installed asphalt motifs at the entrance. Pedestrians didn’t know what to make of it, and most decided to take a walk down this bright alley to investigate.

Zombie Village

A tropical refuge in San Francisco

Why drink in a normal bar when you can drink in another dimension? 

When the team at Future Bars reached out to us to incorporate projected AR into their upcoming bar project, we had no idea how far they’d gone to curate the out-of-this-world vibe that is Zombie Village. We were excited to bring projection mapping in to further that effort. 

We used two Optoma GT 1080 projectors with two LF1s to project some of Lightform Creator’s built in effects along with some additional custom animations onto their main wall and two 14′ hand carved Tiki Totems by Tiki Mora Mora.
