Here’s Great Tip: How we can hack the surfaces around us with projection mapping | Joe Crossley | TEDxUbud


Here is Something You Should See…


Can we use classroom walls to immerse our children inside a dividing cell to teach them biology? Can we hack photosynthesis and speed up the growth of plants to feed the whole world? Joe Crossley believes that the answer lies in projection mapping. At the intersection of art, science and technology, there is an exciting future taking shape and new solutions for old problems are appearing from the light technology now available. Joe Crossley / Visual Artist has been in and around the leading edge of the new media art movement since 2006. In 2009 his personal work GEO-GLO marked his arrival on the art scene with coverage from the likes of The Creators Project and VIVID Sydney.
Since then his works have branched out into ‘actual reality’ projection mapping, working with indigenous communities of Australia, including his VIVID Path to the Future project, a widely celebrated ‘open-source’ projection mapping film festival.
Joe has also created acclaimed works for the Sydney Opera House with Intel, this time for Sound Cells, Australia’s largest 3D print broadcast units, and True Life, an ongoing work using naturally occurring processes.
This year he was named EPSON’s first official projection mapping artist which will see him attend a number of events around the world showcasing his works of art.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  1. This is fantastic however it is well known that speed growing plants does affect quality and shortens lifespan. I still think that it can be used to perfectly meter light for perfect rated growth which would be very cool indeed.

  2. Hey! I've been digging deeper into motion graphics, just watched "Box" by Bot & Dolly & GMUNK, and your video was next in autoplay. I'm so glad it was. I'm a video producer for a church in the US, and I'm always hungry to find new ways to use tech to communicate. Thanks for the inspiration and the the hard work, Joe!

  3. I don't think we need to celebrate our differences. I think we need to respect them. No celebration needed.
    You didn't do anything to be whatever race or ethnicity or nationality you were born as.
