Projection Mapping – Memory Puddle

For this mapping project, I had decided to make a video collage with the street scenes that near my old house from childhood. The inspiration comes from the feeling that appears sometimes during rainy days about my childhood memories and the time I spent with my family and friends back in China. The original idea is to project the video collage on the wall in order to create a sense of space, by using Madmapper to project different parts of the video on different walls, the project is able to make the audiences get lost in the space they are in. However, after talking to my instructor Simon about this idea, we both thought it is not powerful, interesting and engaging enough, and he came up with the suggestion, which is to project the video on the water puddles. I actually really love this idea because it is engaging but not very straight forward, it opens a way to invite the audiences to discover the project and the emotion behind it. While interacting with project, the audiences are also able to come up with their own understanding about spacial displacement and the meaning of time.
