The spidron is an S-shape form composed of equilateral triangles, with a spider-web appearance. Its inventor, Dániel Erdély has created this form as a homework for a course held at the University of Art and Design, by Professor Ernő Rubik, the inventor of the Rubik Cube.

“I have never seen something like this- kind of this was what the inventor of the magic cube said when the prospective artist – son of Miklós Erdély avant-garde artist – presented him the accordion-like paper-folded form,” notes the journalist Tamás Bodoky at the portal

In the MAGMA Contemporary Exhibition Space, we will have the opportunity to see the spidron mapping, presented in spatial projection. The light work of Zsolt László Bordos uses the Spidron as an inspirational form. With the help of object mapping, it captures the visual possibilities of the geometric shape.

Though there have been many prior antecedents, the subject and name of the projecting of objects as an independent art form appeared in 2006-2007, when experimental artists from different parts of the world, including Hungary, got tired of projecting on flat surfaces and began projecting on 3D objects and sceneries. A monumental variety of object mapping is the architectural projection or otherwise known as building projection.

The experience, in its actual meaning, is deepened by the Anaglyphic stereoscopy: this 3d sensation, meaning the process of sensing space, is further enhanced by visual experimentation with different facets, deceiving the viewer in his senses. “The viewer can not interpret those seen with his usual methods, his senses let him down (as the projected image changes the projected surface). The projection blocks the viewer from his usual perception and perception patterns, causing him to form a new interpretation process! I am convinced that object and building mapping go beyond the category of technical curiosity. It’s a new visual language that can reach today’s man! “says Bordos.

Because of its light and sound technology the Spidron – stereo 3D object mapping installation is not recommended for children.

The exhibition can be visited during the whole festival with a special programme: Friday – Sunday, 11 AM – 22 PM.
