High-speed projection mapping captures performance art26 April 2017
TOKYO, a creative production agency based in Tokyo, has created a unique performance work titled ‘INORI-PRAYER’ in collaboration with design studio, WOW, which captures dance duo AyaBambi using ‘DynaFlash’ high-speed projection.
The project started when Nobumichi Asai, creative director of WOW, approached TOKYO film director Eiji Tanigawa, the dancing duo AyaBambi, and the Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory at the University of Tokyo. It combines the talents of WOW – renowned for its work with face mapping and CG, and TOKYO – winners of a number of awards for video and commercial productions using new technologies.
DynaFlash is a new projector technology developed by the Ishikawa Watanabe Laboratory, which enables filming at 1,000 fps, making it one of the fastest in the world. The team also utilised high-speed sensing and 3D mapping technology along with precise depth measurement and high-speed 2D tracking technology to create the mapping system that captures the famous duo made up of choreographer Aya Sato and her dance partner Bambi.
