We are Mr.Beam, a projection art studio based in the Netherlands. We’re passionate about the art of visual storytelling that uses and expands the principles of animation and projection mapping. Transformation is the very essence of our work, establishing poetic, slightly theatrical narratives. They are brought to life through a varying interplay of materiality, space, and light gathering into shifting structures and volatile patterns, fueled by contrasting colors and shading, manifesting and vanishing again.

Looking for a setting suitable for expressing our work, we discovered an architectural artifact located in our hometown of Utrecht. This chapel, over five hundred years old, incorporates Mr.Beam’s philosophy, having witnessed a multifarious history of transformations in which the building served various spiritual, artistic, and even commercial purposes and owners. Supported by the movements of a talented performer, we captured this impressive location with our designs, accentuating the architecture while simultaneously breaking its substance open. The line between the tangible form and the suggestive power of light encountering a dusty atmosphere became blurred. In an almost mystical way, the immaterial was rendered visible.
