Dutch light artist Alex P will be on display at Brilliant Baltimore Festival from November 1st-November 10th from 5pm to 10pm.
ALEX P’s MAPP Light Project
MAPP is an abbreviation of Mapping At Private Properties. It is a mobile point-and-shoot video projection mapping system. The installation consists of a video projector, a camera and a laptop running custom software developed by AlexP. Everything is mounted together on a pram. MAPP makes a scan of its surroundings using the camera and subsequently shows an abstract and moving video mapping. Visitors of Light City can “step into the light” and become part of the artwork. Once the scan of the visitors has been made, they walk out of the light and see themselves in the colorful projection. Don’t forget to bring your camera for your light-art-selfies!
