3D Facial Projection Technology Creates Digital Skin Using computer graphics and facial projection and tracking technology, Nobumichi Asai creates a new art form of facial tattoos, where digital makeup transforms a human face into a masterpiece of computer graphics. Makeup has the transformative ability to make a face beautiful, alluring, sexy, clownish or creepy. As the art of makeup moves into the digital age, it won’t be long before people can use 3D facial projection technology to paint faces with anything from tiger stripes and leathery snakeskin, to exploding waterfalls and erupting bouquets of flowers. The experimental art of facial projection by Japanese artist and scientist Nobumichi Asai turns the human face into a canvas of the imagination. The curves and features of the face become an irresistible landscape for animated, kaleidoscopic images. “The most interesting thing about technology is that it makes the impossible, possible,” said Asai. Asai uses the human face much like a filmmaker uses the big screen.

Water Nest 100: An Eco-Friendly, Solar-Powered Home Made With Near 100% Recycled Materials What do you call a home that can sit on small or large bodies of calm water, is eco-friendly, solar-powered, and made from 98% recycled materials. I call it amazing, but the design group, Giancarlo Zema, called it the Water Nest 100. Giancarlo Zema is based in Rome and specializes in semi-submerged architectural structures, marine parks, floating habitats, yacht and interior design. They designed the Water Nest 100 for EcoFloLife, a company based in London that manufactures and sells eco-friendly floating residential structures. I think they hit a big winner with this model. The top of the Water Nest is constructed with 60 square meters of amorphous photovoltaic panels (solar panels) that can generate 4 kWp. kWp stands for kilowatt peak or the amount of power the solar panels can produce in ideal conditions. Solar panels on the roof can generate 4 kWp. Image Credit: Giancarlo Zema Lighting during the day is a non-issue with the Water Nest.

onformative – ANIMA iki Fluid shimmering patterns flow around a luminescent orb suspended in space as tones oscillate in the room. »ANIMA« is an entity that modifies sound and visuals as it reacts to and forages in its environment. This continuous exchange between viewer and sculpture unites them in a perpetual discourse through an interactive soundscape and visuals. »ANIMA« is a sculptural installation developed to explore the relationship between itself and its surroundings through the use of movement, texture, light and sound. The installation consists of a giant glowing sphere measuring two meters in diameter. This larger-than-life entity is suspended from the ceiling, as if in mid-air, in a darkened room. The spherical projection is achieved from inside the globe with a powerful wide angle projector and fisheye lens, producing images in a full 360 degree directional beam. Through this process of refining behavior and visual complexity, »ANIMA« becomes life-like and impressive.

Loop over water in een projection-mapped rijstveld HARMONY door teamLab. Afbeeldingen via Op de Milan Expo kunnen bezoekers dit jaar over water lopen. Althans, dat is het gevoel dat je krijgt als je in HARMONY staat, de nieuwe projection-mapped installatie van teamLab. De installatie bestaat uit een aantal projectoren die gekleurd licht schijnen op tientallen, bladvormige schermen. De gekleurde bladen zijn op verschillende hoogtes geplaatst en reageren op de beweging van de bezoekers, waardoor je het ene moment tussen groene banen van gras loopt en het volgende in een zilverkleurige school van vis staat. DIVERSITY, de andere installatie van teamLab die tijdens de Milan Expo te zien is, complementeert HARMONY en is een soort interactieve waterval die je in 360° kunt ervaren. Meer werk van teamLab: Een interactieve zee van bloemen daalt neer in Tokyo Vang hologram-vissen in deze 3D-projection mapping game Je kan hier binnenkort stage lopen.
