The world’s smallest chef prepares a delicious dessert. Bon appÃ©tit!
Playful remarks aside, this is an interesting 3D mapping proof-of-concept.
Designed by SkullMapping, an artistic collective run by Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeeck, Le Petit Chef is a performance projected onto your empty dinner plate and its environs as you wait for your meal.
It features a funny little animation of a tiny chef stepping out of a manhole and preparing your meal himself. Antics abound, as the minuscule culinary master converts your plate into a grill, chops down a broccoli tree, pulls up fresh digital potatoes, and faces off against his fly nemesis.

An artistic collective run by Antoon Verbeeck and Filip SterckxÂ By using 3D projection mapping techniques, and a profound artistic knowledge, they tell stories with stunning bespoke visuals and deal with art in an experimental, technology-related way.
