Video Projection Design

Video Projection Design is a field where artists can create imagery that allows for interaction with physical spaces and live performers. A subset of the field, video projection mapping allows designers to transform props, sets, or even buildings into completely different objects and environments through a carefully constructed relationship between imagery and the silhouette and form of these objects.
