Created by Antoon Verbeeck and Filip Sterckx from SkullMapping, Le Petit Chef uses 3D projection mapping (projectors courtesy of Stake5.be) to show a miniature chef appear on your table at a restaurant, who then proceeds to prepare the meal you have ordered right before your eyes.
“For this project, we experimented with projection onto a dinner table,” say Filip and Antoon.
“By making use of a combination of 3D animation and motion capture, a miniature chef turns your dish into a projected grill. Bon appétit!”
By combining 3D projection mapping techniques with artistic knowledge, Skullmapping tells stories with stunning bespoke visuals.
Not limited to dinner plates, the company creates projections on buildings, in boxes and even on the ground.
“We add extra dimensions, optical illusions and notions of movement onto previously static objects,” the duo comment.
“Skullmapping deals with art in an experimental, technology-related way. We love to create our own projects, but we also work closely together with our clients to provide the most customised solution for their projects.”
