About Us / What We Do

Projection Mapping" has become so well known and popularized that it is now used in everyday conversation. Our longstanding activities to promote and educate the public about projection mapping have now moved to the next stage. We will continue to make it function more meaningfully in society and nurture it as a hopeful technology and culture to contribute to the excitement and happiness of people.

What is Projection Mapping?

Projection Mapping is an imaging technique that synchronizes real and virtual images using a projector. The fascinating world view created by the fusion of the two has never faded and is attracting attention around the world. It is also suitable for the direction of historical buildings, as it does not require any modification to the architecture and can be immediately restored to its original state.

The historic competition, which began in 2012, is now in its 11th year and has developed into one of the world's largest video festivals and is held at various architectural sites throughout Japan. The Grand Prix and many of the other prizewinners have since gone on to work all over the world. Each time a different theme is set and short projection mapping works of 1 minute to 1 minute and 59 seconds compete for the title of the world's best. In 2022, 241 works were submitted from 55 countries and regions, and many of the winners, including the Grand Prix winner, have since gone on to work around the world, making this an international competition of extremely high status.
