Live illustrations: Next level animation!

Paintings that come alive at night in a museum, imagine just how next level that kind of tech interlined with animation can be. These amazing illustrations are the paintings of Filip Sterckx and feature 3D modeling, sound design and dynamic projection that brings each to life. Once the lights are dimmed, the projector springs to life and treats onlookers to an animated exhibit in which the artwork springs to life. Each of the pieces interact with one another, as well as the non-animated artwork while which leap off the canvas and navigating the room through any appropriate means. It’s called skull projection mapping or for short Skullmapping at least the company behind this sort of animation is. Skullmapping is an artistic collective run by Antoon Verbeeck and Filip Sterckx (Person behind the art featured in the vid above). By using 3D projection mapping techniques, and a profound artistic knowledge, Skullmapping tells stories with stunning bespoke visuals.They create projections on buildings, in boxes, on shapes or simply on the ground, which results in the most surprising scenes adding extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects. Skullmapping deals with art in an experimental, technology-related way.
