Beautifully Crafted Diorama Brought to Life with Projection Mapping


It’s been a while since we have posted about the beautifully mesmerizing projection mapped works of Davy and Kristen McGuire. You may remember the piece entitled ‘Alchimie de Courvoisier’, which represented the heart of Courvoisier by reimagining the prestigious Paradis cellar encased in glass, showing the viewer the process of the how Courvoisier is made.

In this installment,‘Precious Moments’ takes place in a large paper crafted diorama measuring 3 meters wide, revealing a busy Parisian street as a corner window display. The overall theme surrounds the journey of two couples falling in love and their stories are brought to life with projection mapping.


This work was commissioned by Japan’s leading pearl and jewelry company Mikimoto as a shop window display for its main store in Ginza Road, Tokyo. The combination of paper craft and video projection tells the silent love story of two couples during their most iconic and precious moments together whilst also displaying Mikimoto jewelry.

Jewelry is important to people, they found these “precious moments” in the different scenes where. The work was produced in collaboration with the projection Mapping Association of Japan. For more information on the creative process please watch this short interview. A few years ago they made a pop up book, The Ice Book and now as they continue to develop their niche, we become more and more blown away. Be sure to check out the video below.
