MEDIARTS ZUSHI 2014

 
We held the 3rd 1 minute projection mapping competition at the Zushi elementally school in Zushi-shi, Kanagawa prefecture same as last year. It was shown for two days from Sep. 20(Sat) to 21(Sun) as a main event of the media art festival called “MEDIARTS ZUSHI 2014”, and the number of visitors exceeded last year in a total more than 4,000 people in two days.
In addition, the 37 record-high entries were sent from more than 10 countries and areas. The competition is gaining a lot of attention globally.

This year’s theme is “WA”. “WA(和)” represents Japan herself and things Japanese. We would like participants to think not only this meaning but also other meaning of “WA” such as harmony(調和), peace(平和), circle(輪)and link(輪).

Pay attention to the guest work!
Japan’s first try to evolve projection mapping.
The last year’s grand prix FRIGHTGRAF will join us as a guest creator this year. They will show a projection mapping which is based on a technique of the stereoscopic vision called anaglyph. We need to wear glasses when we watch it. There are still few examples in the world, and there are only indoor and small works in Japan. It becomes the first Japanese trial to show projection mapping of the stereoscopic vision to a building.
