“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.

1024 architecture and Garagecube are currently conducting a workshop  at Darwin ecosystem-  Bordeaux.  5 video artists from Bordeaux area joined this workshop to build a light installation for the digital week  #SDBX4 . This art piece made out of 5x 3d digital clock characters will be installed on the front of the Bordeaux’s city hall from the 12th of september

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.

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.
