No strangers to creative and awesome uses of projection mapping, Davy and Kristin McGuire have practically created a book of magic. Upon opening the cover of this seemingly-ordinary tome, a 3D scene appears, just like the pop-up children’s books you might remember as a kid. Then, the scene is flooded with projected light, creating an audio-visual experience unlike any book you’ve ever seen.
Behind the scenes, so to speak, is a battery-powered pico projector which rear-projects light off a small mirror and onto the pop-up set pieces. This clever design enables the book to be self-contained, portable, and doesn’t distract the viewer from the experience.
This work is part of a larger project called The Icebook, an entire book made up of projection mapping experiences. As usual, we can’t wait to see what Davy and Kristin have in store next!
