Christie has published The Book of Transformations – a coffee-table style book that explores and celebrates how artists and technicians are using powerful projection display technologies to visually transform familiar structures and objects.
The Book of Transformations provides visuals, core plans and technical details on scores of projection mapping projects carried out around the world using Christie projectors and complementary enabling technologies. It is available as a free downloadable app across multiple platforms, a PDF file and as a limited release hard copy publication.
Through more than 70 case studies, readers learn how giant office buildings, ancient temples and churches, landmark towers, bridges, performance stages and even athletic playing surfaces have been re-imagined and truly transformed using `light paint’ and the creative genius of event producers and artists.
The tablet version of The Book of Transformations includes images, embedded video and detailed narratives of how various structures and surfaces were mapped, recreated in software, and then given entirely new appearances using powerful projected light. The free tablet app is available on Apple’s App Store for iPads and Google’s Play Store for Android tablets. A non-interactive PDF is also available free of charge.
