Neclumi asks, “Are we willing to abandon atoms of gold for the waves of light?” A brilliant jewelry line created in the minds of Polish art collective panGenerator, Neclumi necklaces and watches will make the future brighter. Trading in heavy metals for a picoprojector, the interactive jewelry will be run through a custom app with 4 options for movement. Airo mode will react to a pedometer to move with you as you walk. Sono mode will react to the ambient sound and your voice. Roto will use the compass to react to the rotation of your body. Movi will react to your body movement to bounce with you. [Read more…]

Who says you need film to make a film? A French artist named Julien Maire has combined the modern technology of 3D printing with the classic art of animation to create unique light motion on a wall.

Like a flashy, crackly, silent film reel from the early 1900s, the project uses new ideas to create something old school. [Read more…]

Sober Industries Projection Mapping Sculptures 4
