SPIDRON MAPPING 2.0 - stereo 3d object mapping installation duration: 7 minutes (Loop) SPIDRON - stereo 3d object mapping installation 3d animation: László Zsolt Bordos Spidron System: Dániel Erdély Sound: Darko Kolar aka DEKODE Technical Partner: Christie Digital SPIDRON SYSTEM: The Spidron is a complex geometric shape invented by the Hungarian designer Dániel Erdély. Composed by two types of triangles alternating in a spiral fashion, the construction of triangles can be deformed and moved continuously in space. The Spidron was initially produced as a piece of homework for a theory of forms class taught by Ernő Rubik. An international research team led by Dániel Erdély, began work on the variations of the astonishing wealth of the Spidron family. The Spidron has been featured on the front page of the October 2006 edition of Science News, while the magazine Pour La Science published an article of several pages about it in May 2014. SPIDRON MAPPING: The installation of László Zsolt Bordos uses the Spidron shape for inspiration, exploring the visual possibilities of the geometric formation using the object mapping technique. The re-projection of virtual 3D animation onto the real 3 dimensional shape and the interplay that results from the combination of the two components, results in novel, often striking and perplexing visual experiences for the viewer. In order to enhance that experience further, Bordos also uses anaglyph stereoscopy. Anaglyph stereoscopy is a way of achieving a stereoscopic effect in a single image. If two images taken from slightly different angles are presented to the two eyes, a virtual sense of depth is created. “Viewers are unable to interpret their visual impressions using their accustomed methods; they are abandoned by their senses (because the projected image modifies the surface it is projected onto). The projection derails the viewers customary schemes of perception and observation and urges them to create a new process of interpretation. I am convinced that object and building mapping projections go a long way beyond the category of technical curiosities. It represents a new visual language that truly speaks to the people of today” – says Bordos.
