Subway Parasite: Stealth Light Projector

Subway Parasite: Stealth Light Projector

This subway parasite project is quite old, it was invented by Frédéric Eyl at the University of the Arts in Berlin back in 2005 (long before about 2,200 people liked Urban Art Core on Facebook), but it’s that great that I have to share it with you…

Parasite is an independant projection-system that can be attached to subways and other trains with suction pads. Parasite projects films inside a tunnel. These tunnels bear something mystic – most people usually have never made a step inside any of those tunnels. Confusing the routine of your train-travelling-journey, your habits and perception the projections parallel worlds – making use of parasite – allow you a glimpse into a different world full of surrealist imagery.

The entire parasite pack consists of a suitcase, a Mac Mini, a projector, suction pads, a mirror, power supply and a voltage converter, what makes it too expensive to do it yourself, but hey, it’s a brilliant idea and probably the Graffiti Research Lab (GRL) guys are coming up with a cheaper version in near future – I would love it!
