Leading video artists participate in the World Masters of Projection Mapping

12 January 2018
 From 14 January onward, international video artists start a three-week display of 3D projections onto the EYE Filmmuseum façade as part of Amsterdam Light Festival. The shape of the multi-faceted museum, with no straight surfaces and the close proximity of water from the IJ, created a unique set of technical and productional challenges for the artists. To make projection possible, 11 beamers have been positioned all around the building. The World Masters of Projection Mapping is a joint venture initiative from Amsterdam Light Festival, event organiser Integrated Systems Events (ISE) and RAI Amsterdam. From 14 January until 9 February the final work of each of the participating artists will be showcased from 7-9 AM and 5-11 PM each day on the EYE Filmmuseum. A perfect union of creativity and technology illuminates Amsterdam.

The finalists of the World Masters of Projection Mapping are:

1. Geert Mul – For over 25 years Mul has been exploring the possibilities of poetry in the language of new (data-based) media. Mul’s practice engages the broader public through audio visual performances and commissioned artworks in public spaces. His installations have been showcased in numerous museums for modern art including the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.
