The Dive / 2015



Petr Krejčík

/CZ/ The independent digital artist Petr Krejčík began his work as a VJ. In 2009 in Prague he created the first of a series of videomapping projections to which he has actively devoted himself ever since.He has collaborated on the projection The Dive with two other solitaire artists. Ondřej Skala is an audiovisual artist who focuses primarily on use of sound and music in the context of various visual outputs such as videomapping, interactive audiovisual installations, performance art, film, and theatre. Ati Sphere creates videomapping on facades of buildings but also as a part of theatre performances combining interactive projections, dance and acrobatics.

This videomapping projection tailored to the rococo facade of the Kinský Palace in the Old Town Square was created from the productions of the artist Petr Krejčík in collaboration with musician and artist Ondřej Skala and visual artist Ati Sphere. This projection combines abstract shapes with reinventions of the elements of the facade and illusions evoking a watery surface. In this way the projection penetrates the subconscious in an attempt to shatter the image of everyday reality.
