RICE Mapping – world’s smallest video mapping

Does Size matters? Apparently not!

Rice Mapping is the world’s smallest video mapping ever. Drill Tokyo ’s creative team created this amazing video mapping performance on a single rice grain using #MadMapper . This work was presented during the Tokyo design week in Milano- Itlay – from 4 to 19 april 2015.

We created the world’s smallest projection mapping that brings together Japan’s ancient values and state-of-the-art technology. As it is being viewed, the texture of the “rice” begins to change so that it is no longer just rice. This reflects the ancient Japanese belief in shogyo mujo (the impermanence of worldly things), which is embodied in the saying: “all creation is infinitely transitory with forms and values changing in each moment.”
Drill is an ultimate creative team that uses all possible means to achieve goals including: strategy, advertising, promotion, content, product, digital, event, and PR.
This project was created in collaboration with aircord (system development), Maxilla (video production), and Yuki Precision (precision machining).”

MAPPING MASTERCLASS by STUDIO CORIUM

DSC_0563-1

From 4 till 6 May 2015, during the Electropicales Festival in the Island Reunion, Studio Corium was invited to give a mapping masterclass, working on MadMapper, Quartz Composer and VDMX. Intensive dumping into the software to learn how to build a scenography from A to Z.

The initiation into MadMapper served to understand the bases of mapping. Among many other things, the participants learned how to cut the video signal, create masks and different presets, and get back the Quartz compositions with their inputs into MadMapper. The power of the software allowed the participants to get easily creative and to be quickly enthusiastic on the exploiting possibilities.

At the end of the session, the final work was projected on the walls of the Old City hall during the inaugural night of the festival.
