Into The Woods is the first in the series of ‘STYLUS Shorts’, a new chapter in the life of the projection mural escapades, between Rebecca Smith & Peter Barber. The series explores an invigoration for craftsmanship and stripping work back-to-nature, whilst incorporating a juxtaposition of progressive digital projection & mapping techniques. Into The Woods documents the experimentation, in a single evening, with temporary performances surfaces, in this case with shrink wrap, to produce a translucent and ephemeral 3d structure. Playfully using the depth of the structure to create anamorphic imagery, the piece uses spray-painted image to ‘hold’ projection, effectively painting with light. With a quintessential English woodland as the setting for the piece, Into The Woods collaborates with Sonic Artist Jimmy Power, capturing the environmental soundscape, and re-working it for sound design on the final video.

Based on the concept of the Phoenix, “Shift” is a light installation commissioned by the Royal Northern College of Music. It takes their iconic staircase and transforms it with bold, moving colour, pattern and light, playing on the industrial feel of the structure, emphasising sharp lines, abrupt connections and dynamic interactions of motion. The piece is made of sweeping swells & crescendos, which then drop back to minimalism, using the idea of resurgence, resurrection and return to life. Created and mapped by Urban Projections Sound design by Jimmy Power | Projection by Lumen With thanks to Dr Michelle Castelletti , RNCM Artistic Director+ More details
For several months, we have been working with young people from all over Nottinghamshire, to represent the young LGBT community in an awesome series of guerrilla projections, for Nottinghamshire Pride. Creating a series of AV loops which aim to deliver a positive message of tolerance and respect, the loops were VJ’d live out on the streets of Hockley, beaming onto buildings, street furniture and the unexpected. A live av set was also performed at Broadway Cinema to mark the event. This film shows the work created during the workshops, and charts their adventures out on the streets. Beam was funded by Nottinghamshire County Council. A huge thank you to all the groups that were involved - WOW, Resonate and Outburst. Thank you to Alison Jones, Pete Barber and to Stonewall for the hard hitting factual statistics.+ More details

3rd place in ISTD student competition 2014. This is a film created for an international competition along with a series of other submissions. It is an action in the streets of Thessaloniki, Greece, using two typefaces: Egyptian Slate Pro and ITC Bodoni Pro. The first one was used in posters, stickers, stencil and graffitis and the second one was used for urban projections on walls, buildings and other public surfaces. The whole idea is that the power of words, combined with the nature of the public space can convey strong messages to people, in times that Greece, as well as the whole world, is suffering. The action was filmed and photographed, and then was placed in the first pages of a Type Specimen, which presents the fonts that were mentioned earlier. You can find photos of the whole project here: http://www.aas.gr/el/ta-nea-mas/anakoinoseis/3o-vraveio-typografias-sta-istd-awards-2014-1633 and here: http://blog.aas.gr/3%CE%BF-%CE%B2%CF%81%CE%B1%CE%B2%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%BF-%CF%84%CF%85%CF%80%CE%BF%CE%B3%CF%81%CE%B1%CF%86%CE%AF%CE%B1%CF%82-%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B1-istd-awards-2014/ Filmed with Canon EOS 5D Mark III & Nikon D3200 Filmed by Mo until 6.24 min Filmed by Azok from 6.25 to 9.01 min Edited by Nick Tao Songs used: Keny Arkana - La Rage (instrumental) Soulkast - We Live Hip Hop (instrumental) Filmed during the cold nights of January 2014.+ More details
S T Y L U S # 4 was created by Rebecca Smith & Peter Barber. It documents a 3 night residency on the streets of Lincoln, England, for Frequency 2013 Digital Arts Festival. Over the course of 3 nights a blank billboard transitioned through different states to comment on the festivals theme of 'Revolution'. The states explored consumerist and political propaganda, recent forces of political change and a calling message to act NOW, encouraging the viewer to examine their own interpretation of 'Revolution'. Each evening was started from the previous state, spraying over the remaining image. Stylus 4 was a live audio, visual and painted, street performance, incorporating projection mapping techniques. Music 'Shuffle' by Jimmy Power With thanks to Frequency Festival 2013.

We've recently been giving a series of live visual lectures at Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies, where students have been exploring different means of using projection for set design of live music acts. We've been imparting how simple things can look really effective, such basic mapped shapes. It's about time we practiced what we preach, and hopefully give some inspiration to students, so we put this together in a time frame of 3 hours.
