Mayer + Empl + 3D Architectural Space Mapping at Dlectricity

German duo Martin Mayer and Quirin Empl (better known as mayer + empl) are bringing their 3D mapping project “Architectural Space Intervention” to Dlectricity 2017!

Accomplished 3D video mappers, the pair constructs interior and exterior installations that track the architectural elements of a space and reconstruct them virtually in order to change the usual perception. Their installations also record the sounds and noises of visitors and play them back as part of the installation. Space is given a life of its own.

For Dlectricity, mayer + empl’s project “architectural space intervention” will be located at the Mike Kelley Mobile Homestead at MOCAD. The projection will use white lines to trace the space, highlighting architectural elements. Infrared depth cameras will track visitors entering the installation, so that their bodies are then transformed into silhouettes and projected as white lines along with the architecture.

Most recently, they exhibited at the Museum Haus der Kunst in Munich and the Spring Attitude Festival in Rome in 2016.

Thank you so much to MOCAD for hosting this project!
