3D Technique Remains a Mystery

Eyeliner is a new projection technique that enables projection of 3D phantom images to blend with the physical space in a very convincing way. The technique consists of High Definition projections that are projected onto an invisible foil material set up in a special angle. Using the Eyeliner it is possible to build virtual set designs and let animated or filmed objects and characters blend in with real people and spaces. The Eyeliner is thus capable of creating a new and different narrative space on stage. A narrative space which makes use of special effects otherwise only known from movies and computer games.

The Eyeliner is partly developed by the Danish company Vision4 which also holds the Danish rights and know-how to use this new technique.

For a filmed example of the use of the Eyeliner in the staging of H.C. Anderson’s The Steadfast Tin Soldier click here.

Above is a visual example from the 3D performance True Love Is Yet To Come at Donna Karan’s Studio in New York City. The perfomance marked the opening of last year’s Performance Biennale Performa05 in NYC. [blogged by Lene Mailund on Digital Experience]
