EVENT: AV PLAYGROUND FESTIVAL VIENNA

PRODUCTION: TAPEART & LIVE-MAPPING

YEAR: 2016

THE MAIN INSTALLATION PROCEDURE TAKES THE BIGGEST AMOUNT OF TIME. BESIDES ENDLESS METERS OF DUCKTAPE, EACH STEP IS TIMECONSUMING AND ESSENTIAL TO CREATE A MIXEDMEDIA ACE LOOKING ARTWORK. 

FROM PREPARATION BY SKETCHING, OVER TAPING THE "TESA PERFECT" DUCKTAPE UP TO WORKING ON THE MIDI-CONROLLED MAPPING - ALL INSTALLATIONS ARE CREATED IN JUST A SINGLE DAY. THE MORE COMPLEX ANIMATION STRUCTURE TO PLAY WITH THE TAPED GRAPHIC IS BUILT BY OVER 50 LAYERS WITH REALTIME OUTLINE ANIMATIONS ON TOP.

ARTWORK  FROM THE DIGITAL WORLD BACK TO THE ANALOGUE AND REMIXED DIGITAL AGAIN, ANOTHER INSIGHT TO THE STUDIOWORKS OF TOFA.

THE DEER

TAPEART POLYGON MAPPING 

Installation @PLAYGROUND AV FESTIVAL Vienna 2017 by Chris Noelle aka TOFA

Two deer 3D polygon shapes interact witheachother just by projection. The installation on a size of 6m x 2m was taped and mapped within a day. Recordings from the final mapping-projections where then recorded and cutted into a seamless loop so the installation was ready to run as standalone multimedia-artpiece within the full Festivals program.

THE PYRAMID

2D TAPEART BECOMES 3D MAPPING

Studio installation by Chris Noelle aka TOFA

A simple structure of taped lines later on allows an optical illusion created by mapping projection. The multimedia installation can adapt any content and additional the outline-animation-paths are live- transformable with the use of a midi-mixer.

THE ROBOT

POLYGON TAPEART WITH 3D MAPPING Studio installation by Chris Noelle aka TOFA

Working with a 3D polygon from the beginning allows realtime shadow recreation, line-redrawing-effects and intuitive content-changes within the mapping. The background can be transformed from black to fullframe animations and allows a lot of variations inside and outside of the wall-taped artpiece.
