Heart of Bollnäs

Art installment. Lead artist

Sculpture & projection mapping

I was very pleased when I was invited together with other selected artists to give our proposal on how the new auditorium in "Folkets-Hus" should be decorated. The invitation came from the acknowledged Swedish paper artist Inger Drougge-Carlberg.
My creative proposal for an installation in the foyer was chosen and I started to flesh out the idea of a living sculpture - The Heart of Bollnäs.

Below you see a film of the final sculpture in action.

Co-artist on the project: Tobias Elling.


The core of the Heart evolved from the  'zooming' in on the Heart of Sweden. There was a lot of experiments on how to map the Sculpture. The final shape of the sculpture was drawn in CAD an all angles measured before being sent to the CNC machine. The carpenter seemed surprised how well everything fitted together. The final two parts were assembled and spray-lacquered on location.

We did not use a mapper program so the final image had distortions pre-rendered. My co-artist built a custom player to randomise clips and sound all day. There was two main ways I constructed the distorted image. 1 by just rendering a matching 3d scene in C4d and the second was an AE 3d composition where a sub comp had been positioned and masked to match. Great fun. 

At the bottom of the page you see how convincing the mapping is just on a 1:5scale model.

The colors below was the art mural painted on the surfaces on location.
