“Codex Dynamic” at The 2012 DUMBO Arts Festival
The 2012 DUMBO Arts Festival featured a large-scale video projection mapping installation which covered the Manhattan Bridge East Anchorage and Archway in Brooklyn. “Codex Dynamic” was curated / produced by Leo Kuelbs, John Ensor Parker and Farkas Fülöp. The exhibition was comprised of an international cast of 16 visual artists presenting single-channel videos on the interior of the Archway and showcased immersive 3D works created by Glowing Bulbs [Kiégő Izzók] + John Ensor Parker and Integrated Visions which were projected onto the entire 33,000+ sq ft surface.
The seamless imagery was achieved via the powerful realtime geometry correction and edge-blending capabilities of d3 media servers utilizing the latest in 3D mapping techniques. The projection / playback systems, which included 26 Christie Digital projectors totaling 296,000 lumens, were provided jointly by WorldStage Inc and Nationwide Video Equipment Rental.
