Transformational Mirror is an interactive geometric projection mapping sculpture.
Absolut approached two of Hfour’s artists to collaborate with the Symmetry Group to create an interactive art work as a featured installation for their Make The Night event.
Make The Night is an ongoing series of events across Canada, in which Absolut works with artists and makers to create interactive and engaging artworks. Staying true to a decades-old mandate to support creative cultural activities around the world, Make The Night embraces contemporary ‘maker culture’ and presents artworks in vibrant, active locations. It was with this ethos in mind that the creative team decided to make a geometric projection mapping sculpture to connect the contemporary creative world with dj and electronic music culture.
The team decided to create the Transformational Mirror. It came to life with Symmetry Group’s geometric sculptures, Hfour’s projection mapping, and interactive Kinect programming. Symmetry Group is a Vancouver based art group which features geometry, led light, origami and sacred ratios.
The Transformational Mirror represents future time and space, and is inspired by the dynamic, multidimensional nature of our relationship with technology.
The body’s motion is translated into virtual particles that meld with sacred geometric forms, reflecting the incredible potential of contemporary technology while amplifying our sense of curiosity and play.
The geometric surface was illuminated with contemporary projection mapping techniques as well as some of the colourful gradients and spectra that Hfour uses in their artwork.
The artwork activated the space and illuminated people’s faces as they engaged and took photos with it.
