May 2016 – Projection Mapping Experiments

 

 

We have taken some time off making new work in order to experiment with some new ideas. Looks like we’ll be learning some new projection mapping techniques in order to map a dancer whilst performing…

April 2016 – Ophelia’s Ghost

 

We got some lovely reviews for our installation Ophelia’s Ghost which is part of a beautiful exhibition at Compton Verney Museum.

 

 

“A show stopping homage to Millais” Financial Times

 

“A moving installation… a clever, original take on Millais Ophelia in Tate Britain” Mail on Sunday 

 

“The first contemporary work in the sequence is also the most impressive. Davy and Kristin McGuire have created a life­sized hologram of a drowning Ophelia which is uncannily realistic, complete with bubbles and swimming fish. At the technical cutting edge, it clearly references Millais’ famous Pre­-Raphaelite painting” Birmingham Mail

Ophelia’s Ghost is part of Shakespeare in Art at Compton Verney Museum until 19th June. Book your tickets here.

 

March 2016 – Pop Fiction

 

We have received funding to enter the next phase of our augmented reality pop-up book project.

This will enable us to produce an edition of multi media pop-up books (we like to refer to it as Pop Fiction) as collector’s items. If you want one simply

 sign up to our mailing list and you’ll be guaranteed to hear from us as soon as they are ready.

November 2015 – Holiday window display for Mikimoto in Tokyo

 

Two years ago we collaborated with Joanie Lemercier on a holiday window for Barneys department stores on 5th Avenue in New York, and this year we’ve followed a festive calling from Japan’s representative jeweler Mikimoto in Tokyo. The display combines intricate paper craft with projection mapping and will run until Valentine’s day next year. Click on the image to view the trailer.

We’ve also received 2 awards for the display: Japan Space Design Association Award and a Ginza Association Division Excellence Award.
