Pani and Casamagica - wow!

I had already heard about Pani giant projectors, but I really never had the chance to glimpse the work of Friedrich Forster and Sabine Weisseinger.
These two artists have been developing Architectural projection throughout the world with the support of this technology. And what an amazing work!

They began early 95 with the Reichstag project in Berlin (together with the Christo installation, I believe), and with the continuous support from Pani, they undertook major visual dreams - the Koeln cathedral, the pyramids in Egypt and more recently the future headquarter of European Central bank in Frankfurt, among many others.

Really unique artwork, carefully studied and design for each place.

Edirol presents the new V-8

V-4 has been the VJs best friend. I speak for myself, as it was my first hardware investment about 5 years ago. And it paid itself many many times with all the gigs I did. It never failed on me, it droped several times and never got cranked.

Now Roland comes up with V-8! A few new effects, more input channels (why VGA, man?), but still no audio input for total synch (I'm recalling the transformed V-4 mixing table from Addictive TV).

After a long wait, nothing really new came up. BNC inputs are ok, and so are the A/B faders (buttons are out), but what about HD mixing? I need to try it out to see if the image really got a new quality kick. Does anybody know the price?


Bristol hosts videgraffiti

Joanie Lemerciaer (aka Crustea) was the invited artist to the annual Moving Images Project on the city's council house building during the last week before Christmas. It is a project that has began in 2006 and intends to continue.
Using Arkaos (I dont't like the sw, I confess), he mapped the building and enlightened it's different parts creating an impressive visual show.
