For the 'Rotterdamse Museumnacht 2011' Sober Industries build two large sculptures. Both sculptures were projected with mapped visuals. The spectators were able to control the visuals projected by a custom made cubicle with motion sensors and buttons, made by Bruce Moerdjiman. By tilting the cubicle the color of the visuals changed and the buttons were used to skip through the visuals and to create other effects like blending and scratching.
The following partners supported us in this project:
Blaak 10 Gallery & Store
Human Centered ICT
This project was awarded St.joost penning for best graduate project 2011 At the St.Joost art academy.

Spes Lab is the art and photo studio of japanese painter Koutaro Ooyama.
He painted walls, floor and ceiling with neon colored psychedelic visuals and using LED lighting made the colors change and evolve following the sound of the DJ booth.
We set up an immersive mapping in order to create a 3D unverse based on the complex shapes of the painting.
