Project Showcase: Landschapslumen by Beeldjutters
Between all the EDM LED screen madness and the onslaught of geometric projection mapping, sometimes it's nice to see something completely different.
Such a thing is Landschapslumen by the Dutch artist collective Beeldjutters:
Our name is Beeldjutters, and we have a long-term project which is called Landschapslumen. We create images which we use to transform a landscape into a surreal spectacle. The first version of Landschapslumen was shown at the Dutch Oerol Theatre Festival in 2010. Following a successful try-out year, the installation returned to the 2011 edition of the festival in a large-scale version with 14 beamers projecting onto the sand dunes near the sea. Since then, we projected on the forest, snow, palm trees and other landscapes. Back in those days we used to work with Wings Platinum. Nowadays, we mainly work with Resolume Arena and sometimes old-school DVD players. Resolume gives us more freedom to experiment and to see instant results.

For example to add extra arms and hands in the shadows of de musician, or double reversed silhouettes of the dancers, or even project a fish with the head of an actor flying through the landscapes. Our work stands in stark contrast to the techno bombast that you usually see in the clubs. Most of the time we don’t use advanced 3D mapping, but focus on the narrative images. However, we do use the mapping options very often to place the images in our landscapes and create the desired composition.
Come and experience Dwaallumen, 3 oktober in Utrecht. Tickets are available at our website. In december, Landschapslumen is shown at Amsterdam Light Festival. For more info, please visit http://www.landschapslumen.nl (mainly in Dutch, sorry!)
