Ping Pong Pool Projection Mapping, by DAWN OF MAN

When an ephemeral art installation convinces both children and parents, it is a guaranteed success. Dawn of Man achieved this goal with a pool. A pool full of balls.

Dawn of Man was invited by the Mondrian South Beach to create a large-scale, interactive video art installation to light up the hotel for the week of Art Basel.

The first great idea was to use the pool surface as a great screen. The solution for turning the pool into a useable projection surface? Filling it with 250,000 ping pong balls, and projecting onto the resulting surface from a balcony suite on the top floor.

Who has not ever thought about getting into the pool of colored balls of your kids’ playgrounds?

The result is an incredible work of art!
