World Masters of Projection Mapping
Quistrebert brothers secure World Masters of Projection Mapping award
For technical and production excellence of their work STRIPES 5
Florian and Michael Quistrebert were announced as the winners for their magnificent participation in the first edition of the World Masters of Projection Mapping, at the Awards Ceremony at Integrated Systems Europe 2018. World Masters of Projection Mapping is a joint venture initiative from Amsterdam Light Festival, Integrated Systems Europe and RAI Amsterdam.
The announcement comes after a three-week period, during which some of the world’s
leading video artists projected their artworks onto Amsterdam’s multifaceted EYE
The specific award for 'STRIPES 5' recognizes The Best Use of Location and Technology.
In total, five artists were chosen to show their artworks on the building. The challenge for
them was both creative and technical.
The selection of the finalists was carried out through close collaboration between EYE
Filmmuseum and Amsterdam Light Festival. The International Jury who judged the finalists on 8 February comprised: Lennart Booij - Artistic Director of Amsterdam Light Festival (Jury Chair); Jaap Guldemond - Director of Exhibitions EYE Filmmuseum; Marente Bloemheuvel- Associate Curator of EYE Filmmuseum; Jozef Hey - Founder and Owner of BeamSystems; Giny Vos - Artist; Paul James - Editor in Chief, ARC Magazine; Hartmut Kulessa - Panasonic Europe.
Lennart Booij commented on the winning entry: “The jury was very complimentary about
the composition and the use of the building in this display, including its underside. The
artwork also answers the question presented by the challenges of projecting onto a large
surface. Creatively, it is graphically very strong and reflects on art disciplines such as ‘op
art’ and early abstract cinema.”
