Augmented Sculpture Mapping by Pablo Valbuena

This is possibly one of the first and best examples of sculpture mapping that I have seen. I find the simple effects on this 3D abstract sculpture stunning when in motion. I imagine that the sculpture was specifically designed to exemplify this technique. I also really like the idea of the piece being A/V, with sound effects reinforcing the visual, augmented reality of the sculpture. I usually describe mapping to people as virtual reality-reality, which is pretty much summed up by the description of augmentation. By placing the sculpture in the corner of the exhibition Valbuena has restricted the viewpoint to less than 180 degrees, making sure that the lines match up for the viewer and eliminating the need for more than one projector.
