Urban Crafts by Hello Bank is a competition founded to support young crafters.
This year I've been selected to join the competition.
Alexander’s Urban Craft is about building audiovisual installations. Alexander Stragier offers a unique mix of audio and video. Today, he wants to continue experimenting as a cause of his result-oriented approach and come up with new creations. Alexander likes to surprise the audience with numerous projects. He obliged himself to learn every day, but he already has a broad knowledge with which he always starts. As a visual artist, he surprised his audience with a play of dark and light. His dream is to continue doing business and also to evolve successfully.
Nightingale.be comissioned Alexander Stragier from Limen Visual to make their virtual online expo phyisical at their press event.
By using a kinect sensor, your head movement is tracked and then translated live to a camera in the virtual expo.
This gives the viewer an optical illusion of 3D space.
Limen Visual was at the controls of the visuals and lights at the Feestgedruis stage at Cirque Magique Festival in Ledegem, Belgium.
Visuals were created for and adjusted to the stage and projection mapped with two Barco RLM-W8 projectors using Resolume Arena 5. Lights were programmed with touchdesigner to adjust their color, movement and intensity to the visuals used on the stage.
Knowledge centre ARhus in Roeselare, Belgium celebrated it's second birthday with a weekend full of entertainment.
Limen Visual had the oportunity to transform an unused bicycle basement into an audiovisual specacle. An 18m by 4m wall was transormed into an interactive background for the free runners of Wanting Pants and the local DJ's and MC's from Pelzen.

Black and white picture of picadilly circus brought to life using projection. The content of the billboards can be dynamically changed by the people of Jan's Hair Design. The time of day in the picture changes very slowly to make sure every time you look at the it, it looks a little different.
To provide interaction with the clients we added a live instagram feed to one of the billboards. When people tag their instagram photo's with #janshairdesign their picture will show up.
Nightingale specializes in creating awareness through strategy, communication and process management. Their intuitive approach lets them work across a range of disciplines, focussing on progressive media relations, event scenography and experimental tactics.
During their 'Level Up' press days Limen Visual was curated to create an experimental light installation for the 'Light Up' chapter.
Interaction experiment with kinect and projection mapping.
Kinect tracks hand movement and translates that data to decide the position of the sun.
By making a fist you trigger a storm animation, linked to a dmx controlled light bulb to simulate lightning.
Projection mapping installation as product presentation for Curana at Eurobike 2015 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
Quote from their website:
On our Eurobike 2015 Curana booth, we are proud to introduce a promising visual artist from Belgium, Alexander Stragier, who will create an unique, contemporary and interactive visual installation on our booth, by means of 3D projection mapping.
Static pictures of our latest developments will come alive and will offer an astonishing artistic experience.
The magic of Alexanders work lies in the suspension of disbelief and the creative use of light, combining photography with projection. At first seeming to simply illuminate, the images are morphing over time and become 3D interactive structures.
We believe in creative talent and want to give Alexander the opportunity to expose his skills towards an international audience."

accompanying text for the Alexander Stragier art installation:
"Black and white pictures come to life in the audiovisual installations by Alexander Stragier / Limen Visual.
Lights and shadows are manipulated using projection to create a new dimension. A dimension in which we search for the limits of realism. Dreamy scenarios become truth using a golden combination of two timeless techniques, photography and projection."
Villa Bota and 'T Entrepot Bruges organized a videomapping camp.
A whole week of animating to then show of the animations of during the weekend.
I took my chance to test my skills on architectural mapping because i'd never had the chance to do one. The images and video shown here is footage of my share in the finished production.

Limen Visual created the introduction show and provided visuals for a Christmass event organised by Blue Dolphin Events for client Sthree. Theme of the party was 'The world of Sthree'.
For the visuals there was a banner (10m by 4m) with the skyline of New York and projection mapping. In addition to the banner there where two large led screens on each side of the venue. All visuals where custom made for the event. The visuals on the projection and LED screens where perfectly matching and formed one large whole.
