Hey, Since last thursday I have been iterating on mapping to a geodesic dome shape. Here are some recordings.
This is a new map I made based on a different geodesic dome image.
The map produced some interesting results, more of a flat kaleidoscope than a 3D object, but still very nice to look at. The the layers are positioned and flipped creates a nice 5 way kaleidoscope, but video is translated not flipped, which gives you a bit more variety. I really like the footage of driving under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, creates a beautiful spiral geometry. The liquid falling through the fish tank was shot at 45˚ so when on the map creates an interesting gemstone feel. In other experiments I rotated the angle of the side of the fish tank, provided appealing refraction effect. Clearly I need to think of more words to describe what I am doing!
The lines in the middle of the video is footage of looking through to the sky through iron bars. As the camera moves around the size an orientation of the bars change, creating different patterns. The strong parallel lines give the illusion of depth, and this effect if furthered when projected. At one point you can see trees through the bars. This part goes on for a little while, but I think that this would work during a performance. Can't change things too much!
Hope you enjoyed this video and run through! I'd love to hear your thoughts or if you want to hear about anything else. I have another new video up on Vimeo, see if you can find it ;) There will be a blog post about it soon :)
