Visit to Durdle Door

Here are some photographs from a recent trip I took to Durdle Door at the end of the summer. I feel these are useful in showing the beauty of the Jurassic Coast.

The cliff faces here probably have too much vegetation to project a clear image on them compared with the cliff faces at Bridport, but a mobile projector screen could be used, or a large white sheet/canvas.

Cliff faces along the Jurassic Coast in Bridport for comparison. The rock here does have a darker colour, but this could be accounted in software. As for projecting on a non-flat surface, this can be accomplished via software. A great guide I found for doing exactly this can be found at vvvv.org

“vvvv is a hybrid graphical/textual programming environment for easy prototyping and development. It is designed to facilitate the handling of large media environments with physical interfaces, real-time motion graphics, audio and video that can interact with many users simultaneously. Responsible for its development is the vvvv group.

vvvv is free for non-commercial use,
commercial use requires a license.”

As for projecting on non-white surfaces QuickLogic has an interesting product designed for this issue, by using brighter bulbs and a background colour compensator, this is possible.

Here is a perfect example of 3D mapping projection onto the cliffs of Dover. In this example the video is a advert for Carlsberg, but it looks very effective.
