Street Art is often left in the dark at night.
With this project I aim to counter this by adding an extra dimension of light to the works at night by using projection mapping.
Two installations for the Treasure Chamber of the Texture museum in Kortrijk, Belgium
I was invited to create two installations to display a collection of damasks. .
One covers the technical aspects of viewing and creating damasks trough an interactive light installation and projection. The other one brings the stories shown on the damasks to life through projection.
These two installations both run on Touchdesigner.

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.

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."

"Black and white pictures come to life in the audiovisual installations by Alexander Stragier / Limen Visual.

All visuals where custom made for the event. The visuals on the projection and LED screens where perfectly matching and formed one large whole.
"We have seen it so often. Too often. We feel so little. Today there is war and it will be there again tomorrow. Always. At the merest trifle lives are taken for no reason at all. Mother, father, son, daughter. All of them are mercilessly sentenced to the wrong death."
"We zien het zo vaak. Te vaak. We voelen soms zo weinig. Vandaag is er oorlog en dan morgen ook opnieuw. Altijd. Om de haverklap valt ergens wel een dode. Moeder, vader, zoon, dochter. Mensenlevens die te vaak genadeloos tot de verkeerde soort dood veroordeeld worden."
With Today is Death Alexander wants to emphasise the overall presence of war in our current society. Through the repititive representatation of war people get used to its affressive nature. It has become a kind of standard in our daily life, rooted in the deepest fundaments. We also feel like it will never disappear from our society. Through his work Alexander froces you into the cold repetition of blood-stained aversion. In that process he leaves room for the audience to feel something. Or to feel nothing at all.
Met Today is Death wil Alexander de nadruk leggen op de alom vertegenwoordiging van oorlog in ons huidig maatschappijbeeld. Door haar repetitieve aanwezigheid zijn we gaan wennen aan haar aggresieve natuur. We hebben er een norm van gemaakt in onze levens, geworteld als een rots in ons diepste fundament, en gaan er vanuit dat die nooit meer zal verdwijnen. Kijkend dwingt Alexander ons in die kille herhaling van bloederige gruwel en laat dan ruimte om daar zelf iets bij te voelen. Of net niet.

Over the years, CITY SPORT became an established name for high quality caps as an exclusive fashionable accessory for the discerning gentleman. The company has always offered a wide variety of caps in exclusive styles and fabrics.
The fourth generation now reaps the rewards of the preceding generations and is now preparing the future, however without losing contact with the family traditions and creativity.
The City Sport cap is now exported to all European countries, and even to Canada and the USA. But the spirit and production still lies in Ardooie, a small village in the neighbourhood of Bruges.

This company has an increadibly rich and well preserved history.
They have albums full of old pictures covering their entire company history. A history they don't want to keep for themselves. To show how far around the world City Sport caps can be found they started a competition. Take a selfie with your City Sport cap and send it to them, every month they'll choose the best one and that person wins a cap. For this competition we dived into their old photo album and used some of the best photo's to make a promotional video for the competition showing the authenticity of the company.
