You Won't Believe How This Magical Box Was Made

This is incredible. None of the effects you see in the video above by Bot & Dolly were made in post production — everything you see was captured in camera. Which is incredible, because it looks absolutely unreal. The trick was using a perfect projection-mapping system that could be beamed onto moving surfaces, in this case moving canvases. It's a combination of performance art and digital art. I can't get enough.

It's two simple canvases turned into something so much more. Bot & Dolly explains the project:

"Box" explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.
