Projection mapping brings Greek god to life

An incredible project by French content creation studio BK Digital Art Company has brought the disembodied head of Greek god Apollo to life. The art installation, called 'Golem x Apollo' uses projection mapping to animate a sculpture of the ancient god of music, poetry, and prophesy.

Arnaud Pottier, the artistic director of BK Digital Art Company said: "Golem is an installation using an antique sculpture and video to create the uncanny feelings. Instilling the living and the human in the non-human, this work questions the deception of the virtualized image of the living and our empathy for a picture of the reconstructed body, in short the sensitive border between virtual reality and virtuality real."
