French artist JR and acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky unveiled their collaborative project, The Standing March, on November 29th and 30th in Paris. While the city has banned protests for security reasons after the recent terrorist attacks, the images of over 500 people were projected onto the Assemblée Nationale building as a form of silent protest related to the United Nations conference on climate change. The piece, which also features music from 3D (of Massive Attack), will tour from December 1-7, at various locations. Watch the short video feature (directed by Vincent Lorca) below!
Another bike-based projection project, this time by Swiss coder and graphic designer, Michael Flückiger. Made using “a speedometer, a projector, a car battery, an iPad mini and OpenFrameworks,” Flückiger’s bicycle casts a projection made to look like the shadow of an elephant walking and/or galloping (depending on how fast he peddles).
Wait… Do elephants gallop? Is “stampeding” inaccurate if there’s only one?

Originally created for the 2014 Burning Man Festival, “Shogyo Mujo” is now a traveling art piece and highlight of technology conferences like 2014 Adobe Max and 2015 Siggraph. BARTKRESA design and Josh Harker, the team behind the 360 degree projected sculpture, hope to start taking the installation around the world. Watch the video below to get the full effect!
“Strandlines” is a generative single-channel video installation by artist filmmaker Michelle Higa Fox. Digital waves move back and forth across 400 pounds of sand. The waves corresponds to local tides, and no two waves are ever the same. Watch the video below.
