m box made use of elaborate, extensive projection mapping to transform the glass dome (approx. 12 metres wide) of the completely redesigned former Postbank HQ into a generative and sound-reactive, central and spatial sculpture of light.
Not far from the IAA trade fair halls, Audi hosted an event at a special location: the Matrix Club, renowned for its changing roster of public and in-house club nights featuring popular DJs. Each night, visual modules were generated in real-time and staged live and in synch with the DJ’s performance. m box not only created all of these generative modules, but also took care of the technology behind the scenes via m-wall media servers and on-site coordination.

While the actual visuals were created at m box by vvvv-artists and developers, I programmed some shaders to aid the artist’s and director’s visual ideas, and created tools and technical setups to ease the production and technical planning of the projection mapping.
