King Sprong by Skullmapping.
Dynamic drum for Lightfestival Gent.

“Over the years we’ve become known for our minimappings, but when the city of Ghent asked us to create a project to announce their upcoming lightfestival, we decided to make a massive gorilla climb a 90-meter-tall building!”
Antoon and Filip – Skullmapping

After the very successful and well-known installation “Gallery Invasion”, the artist duo Skullmapping decided once again for dynamic projections and staged now the project “King Sprong”. The equipment they chose for this application is a Mirror Head 14 with Panasonic Laser PT-RZ21K and our Media Server MDC-X2.

The Light Festival lights up the city with works by international light artists. The city’s nights will become the backdrop for a surprising spectacle, ingenious installations, spectacular performances and beautiful events.
The fourth edition in 2018 gets an extra day and a newly adapted route. As a result, not only the Historical Centre and the Arts Quarter get bathed in light but also a piece of Ghent’s industrial history.

Skullmapping is an artistic collective run by Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeeck.

Filip, who is the creative director of Skullmapping, has gained global recognition with his music videos for (among others) Selah Sue and Willow. He started his first experiments with projection mapping over ten years ago, resulting in poetic art installations in which he projects video and animation on sculptures, such as “Peepshow” and “My Orca”. His work can be recognized by his inventive visual style, love for combining live-action and animation, and a tendency to break through the traditional 2D screen.

Antoon is a visual artist. Over the last 25 years he has been working as a successful figurative art painter and runs his own gallery in Leuven, Belgium. His paintings can be recognized by a strong 3D illusion. His so called “Lonely subjects”, in the middle of a big white space, provoke a meaning that is poetic, evocative, and often with a funny witticism. His urge to experiment has led him into the skullmapping adventure, where he uses his artistic know-how into new media art.

By using a profound artistic knowledge, and combining it with the latest technology, Skullmapping tells stories with stunning bespoke visuals. We conceptualize, produce and direct projects from start to finish. We deal with art in an experimental, technology-related way.

The perfect virtual companion.
Interactive, social and entertaining.

Did you ever imagine a penguin welcoming you while you enter a shop? Could you imagine being guided by a new kind of virtual personal assistant through a museum? Well, there are some new dynamic projection ideas out there worth sharing with you!

Matsuko, a Slovakian based creative studio, got in touch with us after seeing the “Gallery Invasion” video. They immediately got convinced of the fact that they would be able to use the Mirror Head to create games and mixed reality experiences. The company brings together a group of creative gamers, programmers, designers and technology enthusiasts under the lead of Matus Kirchmayer who has more than fifteen years of experience with 3D, A.I. and online programming.


Being on a continuous look out for new hardware, Matsuko tries to integrate state-of-the-art technology to bring video games and animations into the real world, furthermore into retail and other commercial applications. The tools manufactured by Dynamic Projection Institute caught their attention and since they usually use pre-prepared animations, moving the projections around on several surfaces by integrating the Mirror Head adds value to creating new display methods.

At the time when they first heard of the Mirror Head, Matsuko was already working on a concept where animated penguins could work for museums and the retail industry. More precisely, the concept was that a penguin could become a virtual tour guide or personal shop assistant. The ideal locations, applications, would be in museums and shops where for example a group of visitors would be guided through an entire exhibition or in a shop where clients would enter to be welcomed by a virtual assistant.

“In the case of a virtual receptionist, it will not always be a penguin,” says Peter Urban, Product Manager at Matsuko. He also mentions that other animated characters will be developed in the long-run to reach other target audiences. “We are applying artificial intelligence to create personalized interactive companions that can communicate naturally with humans and assist them.”

Currently in the retail industry, every shop would be interested in such a concept because these smart companions are virtual robots with holographic bodies. Instead of a penguin, you could imagine being welcomed by an animated character that could also look cartoon-like. As Matsuko works directly with the end-users as well as offers their services through their partner companies, they are also able to provide custom-built concepts and characters to match all client needs.

If you are looking for a partner to bring augmented reality to your museum or shop, we strongly recommend getting in touch with the team as they will be able to recommend an ideal solution for you to integrate our tools in your environment.

Pipilotti Rist brings Mirror Head to New York.
Pixel Forest – 4th Floor To Mildness.

Internationally renowned visual artist and pioneer of video art and multimedia installations, Pipilotti Rist, currently is exhibiting her work at the New Museum in New York City and she is using the Mirror Head system to fascinate all visitors reaching the 4th Floor To Mildness.

The exhibition titled Pixel Forest takes viewers into unexpected, all-consuming encounters with textures, forms, and functions of the living universe around them. Her show occupies the three main floors of the museum and includes pieces of her work from as early as the 1980’s.

In this new installation, Pipilotti Rist reveals the connections between the development of her art and the evolution of contemporary technologies. Ranging from the television monitor to the cinema screen, and from the intimacy of the smartphone to the communal experience of immersive images and soundscapes, the exhibition charts the ways in which Rist’s work fuses the biological with the electronic in the ecstasy of communication.

Thomas Kühne, CEO of Dynamic Projection Institute, has closely collaborated with her over the years and continuously keeps on working together to realize new projects. For this representation, Pipilotti chose to integrate the newest generations of Mirror Head units into her show and has plans to further re-locate her installation next in Sydney, Australia.

The popularity of the exhibition has lead the New Museum in New York to extend its opening hours and you still have the chance to visit the Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest until the 17th of January 2017.

#TheMH14 product demonstration,
Everyone is impressed.

Last month during the Panasonic roadshows in Paris, Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen, the Mirror Head 14 was demonstrated for the first time to potential customers. This was an eye catcher for each attendee walking by the hallways and a great way to attract people to the booth. The latest model of the Mirror Head allows users to move projection positions and create shows using 3-chip DLP projectors by Panasonic like the PT-DZ21K, PT-DZ21K2, PT-RQ13K, PT-RZ12K Series.

Dynamic Projection Institute has received positive feedback and many new requests, so we plan to release a new Mirror Head model that will be available for even bigger projectors, more precisely the PT-DZ31K.

Dynamic Panorama perspectives to any projection.

Dynamic Projection Institute is proud to present its latest video, a permanent installation that was uniquely setup with three Mirror Head units to simultaneously project various images to create different Dynamic Panorama constellations. The precision of the Mirror Head guarantees the alignment of the images in an accurate manner to fit them together. The innovation stands in the fact that these panorama setups can be moved from one surface to another in a matter of a second.
