12 MUST SEE Guerrilla 3D Projection Mapping Examples

It allows buildings to move, transform and even communicate! A new advertising phenomenon is taking the world by storm. 3d Projection Mapping allows marketers and advertisers to create surreal landscapes by projecting images on objects. As you watch these videos, notice how much buzz is created as people record and take photos of the event via their mobile phone. For those of you who are not familiar with the term or marketing technique,

“Video Projection Mapping is an exciting new projection technique that can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software is used to warp and mask the projected image to make it fit perfectly on irregularly shaped screens. When done right, the end result is a dynamic projection installation that transcends ordinary video projection. The goal of this site is to compile examples of impressive uses of video mapping techniques.” - videomapping.tumblr.com

H&M Amsterdam Store Launch

On 22, 23 & 24 November 2010, H&M brought their flagship store in Amsterdam to live with a 3D projection mapping on the historic building. For over 3 minutes, guests and a gathered crowd enjoyed a surreal fairytale of light and magical effects. A red ribbon, wrapped around the building, untangles and transformed the building into a colorful dollhouse where nothing is what it seems.

Hirzberger Events – Digital Wallpaper

Public space art installation using geometry mapping techniques.

During my internship at Strukt in Vienna I had a lot of fun creating these projections together with Thomas Hitthaler and Robi Hammerle. The installation is located at Bureau Hirzberger in Vienna. The idea was to use the geometry and the paint of the wall to generate visuals fitting to it. My results were coloured stripes, and a pacman visualisation. The geometry mapping and the programming of the visualisations were realized in VVVV. The setup exists of two projectors, a pc and a timer to switch the projectors and the computer on and of.

  7. Although stunning I wouldn’t class any of the building mappings as ‘Guerrilla’. Shows like these cost upwards of £60,000 for content alone probably much more for Tron & Lauren. Add in a few more grand for equipment hire, infastructure & staffing and your looking at £100,000+ budgets.

  13. Pearl Media is the leader in producing 3D Projection Mapping Advertising Events in the USA.


  14. Agreed. Hard to match super expensive mapping with guerrilla techniques. Below I found what could sort-of-be guerrilla. It’s a mapping advertising the B Seite festival…looks quite underground yet probably effective. On the other hand, it’s actually nice to see a visual festival advertising with mapping.


  15. Palnoise is a company who develops technical & artisticly large scale projections, 3d ampping projections….

    Please take a look:
