Light painting in the literal sense


You’ve probably seen light drawing photography, where people shoot light trails at night, but you won’t have seen light painting like this. Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy go by the name ‘Sweatshoppe’ and together have invented an incredible technique for creating the illusion that they are painting videos onto walls.

To do this, the duo has built electronic paint rollers that work through custom software. This enables the video to project video wherever the rollers go, as it tracks their position. It’s like graffiti without any of the lasting effects!
