Posted on: No Comments

“I like MadMapper. I feel comfortable using it because I’m following the evolution of the software since the first version.” by VJ Vigas.


MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?   
Leandro Mendes aka VJ Vigas: I began my research in audiovisual performances in university in 2003, where I presented a live performance mixing images with music. In 2012, I won the international VJs tournament Videozone. In 2013, I won the 1st place of the three editions of the competition VJ TORNA International, held in Mexico City (Mexico), Rome (Italy) and Cape Town (South Africa). I was repeating the feat in May 2014 in the city of Istanbul in Turkey.

Twist – Design Preis Switzerland

Posted on: No Comments

Benjamin Muzzin and Mathieu Rivier used Madmapper to map on a gigantic Structure made of a 15 km Wool Strings . this event  took place in Langenthal’s Markthalle for a special event, the Design Prize Switzerland, which is held every two years. ‘Twist’ was originally conceived for an exhibition commissioned by Lantal, a leader in the design, production, and distribution of textiles and services for the international community of aircraft, bus, railway, and cruise ship operators.
The main inspiration comes from the fascinating machines used in Lantal’s factories to assemble all of their threads together to make one single piece of fabric. ‘Twist’ intends to put in light this hidden process of fabrication, with hundreds of strings all across a room with video projection giving them motion.

PARADIGM + Madmapper for Laurent Garnier

Posted on: No Comments

A long time Modul8 and mapping fanatic, Diez and his collective PARADIGM got a hold of a beta of MadMapper to augment their installation for a 5 hour dj set by Laurent Garnier.

It is a very simple but elegant approach that we will simply be seeing a lot more of once the MadMapper is released. A nice break from the monotony of seeing so many screens at 4:3 aspect ratio. The MadMapper will push everyone to get into starting to get physical with their work and create sculptures that they can augment with video.

Niño Viejo collective uses MadMapper at Lunchmeat

An appropriate follow up to yesterdays post: The artist Bego M. Santiago is a vital part of the Niño Viejo is a collective. What inspires me about this Spain based collective is that they merge the usual VJing and commercial work with socially conscious art projects.

I was delighted to know that the Lunchmeat Festival in Prague invited Niño Viejo to do a special installation. I had performed at the first edition of Lunchmeat last year. It had produced one of the most memorable audio visual installation type performances I have ever seen.

While we are very strict about who is able to use the MadMapper prior to its release an exception was made and we are very happy with the results.

Sergi Palau of Niño Viejo writes:

The Lunchmeat Festival from Prague invited NiñoViejo this ddition for a 2 weeks residency to make a project for the festival.

Our project consisted of 16 panel, 3 meters tall and 1 meter wide with separations separated in-between them, so that they worked like independent screens and completely covered the back of the stage.

The images that we projected were on the human body in movement and mapping the panels we could use them like a complete screen or 16 independent ones that allowed us to deconstruct and then construct these bodies in movement.

With 3 projectors and a matrox triplehead we could cover the 16 panels, and with MadMapper we could map all these panels in many different ways with the result that with the same image we have several different looks: sometimes seeing the complete and normal picture acros the 16 panels, another times deconstructing the picture, fragmenting and repeating, in mirror, like a kaleidoscope, a videomosaic, etc.

Madmapper turned out to be a tool of incredible facility and versatility of handling and configuration, and, simultaneously, of a superb performance, since you could infinitely repeat the mapped quads without affecting the performance of the videos even working with high resolutions.

As you all know by now, the official release is set for May 26th at this years edition of the Mapping Festival. We are looking forward to this date just as much as you.

Indoors Video Mapping Tambuatã Club, Petrópolis, Itaipava, In the state of Rio de Janiero

Indoors Video Mapping @ Tambuatã Club -- Itaipava / Petrópolis- Rio De Janeiro - Brazil

Next to 1024architecture and Modul8 Team, The UNITED VJ collective has been one of our primary on-site testers of the MadMapper. They have their own unique approach and have been getting the MadMapper into some interesting and large installations in Brazil and these experiences have been very helpful to us for feedback. Especially because they have been incorporating it into a larger workflow with a lot of different tools.

Some extra interface exposure here for you. The grid mesh deformer in action. This is an older build of the MadMapper interface. We can’t show the current one because it has been changing quite a bit. Interface design is an art form. You can feel this when using Modul8 and the team is taking the time to get that same feeling with the MadMapper for your projection mapping pleasure.
