I found a fascinating video today on The Underwire. Technologist Evan Grant, founder of the interactive arts collective seeper, worked with his team to do what he calls architectural projection mapping on Rochester Castle in England. The projection is accompanied by AC/DC‘s “Shoot to Thrill”. According to Grant’s website:
On the site of a thousand years of violent history, ACDC were pitted against Iron Man in a ground breaking architectural projection mapping project. The front facade of the Great Keep at Rochester Castle, was brought to life using the latest in 3D animation techniques.
The video includes all kinds of trippy effects which make the castle wall appear to be alternately a tunnel, rippling with multicolored squares, dripping with yellow viscous liquid, and eventually “exploding” at the end. Several characters are also projected on the wall, along with the AC/DC logo. Here’s the video:
AC/DC provided the entire soundtrack for the Iron Man 2 movie which opens on May 7. Columbia Records released the album AC/DC: Iron Man 2 on April 19.
