This piece revolves around the concept of transitions, through video and through the physical scene. The setting we chose for our 3D projection mapping was a stairway within Wellington city. Chosen for the natural depth it provided and for the simple integration of several layers, the steps also worked perfectly with our concept, transitions. The stairway represents a natural transition, a simple movement of one state to another, in this case from the bottom of the stairs o the top of the stairs, or vice versa.
We chose to use real-world video footage over animation to achieve a greater sense of relation to viewers, showing real life activities. The footage chosen, a pupil dilating, a haircut, a waterfall, a balloon popping, a person getting a tattoo, and the sun going down, are all different types of transitions as described before. Each showing a journey, one state to another.
The documentation is shot from differing angles, to give the viewer a sense of the setting and also to view the projection itself from differing perpectives. The projection upon the stairs viewed from the front may look flat and easy to watch, though the sense of natural depth that the stairs provide is not too visible. From different angles, for example above, the projection itself is not easy to observe, though the stairs are easily visible and a colourful, bright pattern is visible upon them. The artwork is different from each angle, as is part of the beauty of 3D projection mapping.
