Christmas “Under the Sea” (#136)

Monday Mapping


Christmas “Under the Sea”

Christmas Under the Sea projection mapping is a great example of simply being creative. Christmas is a great time to create a sense of awe and wonder using technology in creative ways.



This projection mapping experience brought the mysteries of the sea to the surface. Using 6 total projectors, they were able to create two 75′ by 20′ projection areas. Running along the pier in Panama City Beach, FL, the projection mapping showcased a Christmas scene of dolphins, turtles, and more.

I’ve never seen projection on sand. But, in thinking about it, sand is a great surface to project onto. It is a fairly consistent color, can be smoothed out well, and obviously there’s a ton of it, especially in FL!


Have you ever projected outdoors on a unique surface? Share it with us on Facebook or Twitter.
