Daniel Schwarz : ‘Piece Of Paper’ (Audiovisual Projection)



Video – Daniel Schwarz
Music – Amon Tobin


In a sculptural work, forms built from paper become organic backdrops for undulating pixels in an audiovisual work by Daniel Schwarz. I like that he describes this as partially “non-mapped.” That is, if projection mapping is the use of software to create calculated virtual geometries on which to project, you can also just point a beamer at something that isn’t flat and see what happens. The appeal of projection mapping is to me really about getting away from flat rectangles – not that there’s anything wrong with them, but because it expands the canvas on which digital projection can work. Sometimes, you want perfectly-tuned mappings, but sometimes you actually want distortion and imperfection. It’d be a shame to lose sight of the latter just because of the novelty (and now ease) of the former.
