SPIDRON – Stereo 3d object mapping / A38 Gallery / 19.05-24.05. 2014 / Budapest from Bordos.ArtWorks / LaszloZsBordos on Vimeo.
Spidron Mapping is an art installation which uses a complex geometric shape – invented by the Hungarian designer Dániel Erdély-, stereoscopic 3d animation, sound and video projection mapping to create an audio-visual experience.Projections always have a tangible, physical component (object or building), onto which the virtual content carried by light is projected. During the creative process, the artist builds an exact virtual replica of physical world and uses it to produce the creative layer of the work. Finally, the creative content is projected back onto the real, spatial form (object, building, etc.). The re-projection of virtual 3D animation onto the real three dimensional form and space, and the interplay resulting from the combination of the two components, results in novel, often striking and perplexing visual experiences for the viewer. In order to enhance that experience further, Bordos also uses anaglyph stereoscopy. Anaglyph stereoscopy is a way of achieving a stereoscopic effect in a single image. If two images taken from slightly different angles are presented to the two eyes, a virtual sense of depth is created. The spatial effect is the result of our brains processing and integrating the two slightly displaced images perceived by the two eyes. Viewers are unable to interpret their visual impressions using their accustomed methods; they areabandoned by their senses (because the projected image modifies the surface it is projected onto). The projection derails the viewers customary schemes of perception and observation and urges them to create a new process of interpretation.

László Zsolt Bordos (also known as Bordos.ArtWorks) is a 3d artist living in Budapest, Hungary. In 2000 he started as a VJ, performing in the underground party culture of Budapest. With his early 3d-vjing (2001-2004), his participation to huge size architectural slide projections (2002-2005) and his outrageous video projections and 3d mapping projects (2006-2007), he became a pioneer of the genre.
Cooperating with other artists since 2010, he started to run the projects under the name ‘Bordos.ArtWorks and Invited Artists’, which became internationally recognized as eminent representatives of video projection mapping.
Since 2014 Bordos is focusing again on solo art projects, installations and scenery projections for theaters and operas.
