Audio-visual experts and the general public alike were wowed by dance act Freelusion on Britain’s Got Talent over the weekend. The four dancers from Hungary got through to the live semi-finals with their act which combined futuristic dancing and outfits with 3D projection mapping. The act, consisting of Timea, Lajos, Viktor and Laszlo described their talent to the judges as “an interactive 3D dance show”. Using 4 large cubes and a large screen behind them, the quartet’s projections coordinated perfectly with their actions, creating a smooth performance. 3D projection mapping is often used so that irregularly shaped objects can display video projection.
As was shown in our article on ARC, the digital art festival, musicians in the electronica genre are often using visuals to accompany their DJ performances, but Freelusion claim to be the first dance act to combine the two, with their first showcase in 2009. Freelusion also competed on Hungary’s version of the talent show and have been used in marketing and advertising campaigns for electronics companies.
