What is Video Mapping

Sometimes it’s difficult to explain our analogue, digital laboratory to the world, so we came up with a fancy example. Fisheye’s concept department turned our well-known logo into a 3D form. The form was cut out in the studio from a block of polystyrene using our 5-axis CNC machine. The post-production department then used a spectacular video-mapping technique to give it a digital layer. Just to keep everything well-oiled. If you’d like to come and see it for yourself, just let us know!

Facom Mobile Showroom

Facom wanted to upgrade their current infrastructure and that’s what they got! They gave us an empty trailer and we converted it into an impeccable mobile showroom, equipped with cupboards for displaying all their tools.

It also boasts a screen that can be used to display the latest new gadgets. As well as a battery system, compressor, soft lighting, air conditioning and heating, etc. Plus comfortable seats and a table where prices can be discussed. And last but not least, we reserved room for a coffee machine and a fridge to satisfy all needs.

Work it, Make it : New CNC waterjet

“Work it, Make it, Do it, Make us Harder, Better Faster, Stronger”
– Daft Punk

Fisheye is definitely growing. Three years ago we moved to bigger premises in Wetteren, two years ago our staff doubled, last year we bought a new 5-axis CNC machine and this year it was time for a new CNC water jet!

With this water jet, we can cut bigger sheets of up to 4 by 2 metre. That’s twice as much as the previous equipment. Admittedly, saying goodbye to the old machine was a bit sad. But we constantly set our sights higher! And we can work ever faster and more efficiently with a sharper focus.

So we can guarantee a faster flow from your creative idea to a detailed end result.

New machines means new people, as well. Welcome on board Erik, Emma, Bram, Felix, Michiel and Siebe!

The Gift, Ghent Light Festival, 835.000 visitors !

The gift is a story about a quest. Interpreted by four moving 98” screens and two dancers. Thinking outside the box.

Two processes intertwined to finally converge beautifully. On the one hand, the movements of the screens were tested with practicable transitions and put in a sequence. On the other hand, the movements of the dancers were worked out in relation to the screens. It was clear from the start that we wanted to work with Ludovio Einaudi’s ‘Choros’. That made the transition to an actual dance easier. We let two dancers do their thing with the plans and the result was an installation somewhere between innovative technology and narrative aesthetics. The four mechanical robot arms bring four screens to life synchronously in a choreography, like a constant dialogue between the robot arms, the dancers and the screens. What you see is only a framed part of reality. The screens are like windows, suggesting a bigger imaginary world that lies behind them…

The result could be seen during the light festival in Ghent, where 835,000 visitors came to watch it over a four-day period. But if you missed it or would like to find out more, click here!

 

 

 

4D Virtual Reality Crash Car

### Virtual car crash reality
Car crash simulators are not especially new, but recently Fisheye was approached to make one that is somewhat more ‘immersive’ than previous versions. When the Vlaamse Stichting Verkeerskunde (the Flemish Foundation for Traffic Engineering) supplied Fisheye with the brief for this project, we knew it would be the perfect job for us. It was a job which would involve our whole team: the design team, set builders, technicians, the content creators and more.
