Augmented Sculpture by Grosse8 & Lichtfront

This whole augmented reality thing is starting to take some new and interesting turns, like for example, the sculpture above which was created by Grosse8 and Lichtfront. The 2.5 meter high wooden sculpture has a series of lights around it that displays on all the different surfaces and facets of the sculpture. This sort of stuff still amazes me, I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to create or program something like this.

    Music was created for the project by Jon Hopkins. There’s a little more about the project when it was presented in Cologne in January posted here:

    It was a great event they put on during Cologne’s design week, it’s not a city that’s known as a design capital but I’d recommend a trip to anyone who’s interested in poking around a city’s back corners and warehouses.

    Does anyone knows which font is used for the title « AUGMENTED SCULPTURE » ?

    Wait… I’m not sure that’s actually augmented reality.

    This is pretty awesome. There’s quite a history of augmented sculpture going right back to Laurie Anderson, Tony Oursler, Jeffrey Shaw and others during the 80’s and 90’s and probably back even further in terms of cinema and theatre. This type of Augmented Sculpture really took off when people like Pablo Valbuena and groups like Troika and Anti VJA and UVA started doing projects with video mapping in the last few years. Its really great. Augmented reality refers to something a little different but this is just a comment so I’ll stop. Nice sculpture though!
