do you create the noise from a procedural algorithm, or is this based on 
picture information? the ones in the middle look like they are based on 
images? the shape patterns look amazing!

the trees look beautiful. do you have rules for different tree types?
maya/autodesk (which costs 2000-5000$) includes paint effects, which let 
you create trees and I think they are based on l-systems, too. did you 
ever look at these?

this is not compareable, just wanted to add my .9 c.

in the description I read, "By combining virtual body art and digital 
painting, this work offers to the spectator a new experience of his body 
in the public space." this is an interesting aspect, because of the 
combination of church (with strong regulations of who is allowed to be 
inside and who has to stay outside) and spectators (which seem to be 
people who look at the church from outside, but not the people inside 
the church itself?). usually the important things happen "inside" and 
whatever is projected onto the church from outside does not bother 
anybody inside...? in contrast to american mega churches with basically 
glass walls and tens of tv cameras, where the prayers want to become the 
spectacle. I guess in your installation people looking at the church 
influence "only" the wrapping.
sorry I guess I am off topic... the projections themselves look 
impressive, did you get this running as an animation? did you use 
shaders for the image distortions?

these remind me a little bit of some work I have seen (not so much the 
technology, but how it looks in the room) by theo watson 
http://muonics.net/site_docs/work.php?id=41, but his is more for kids. 
It also looks like you got alpha blending working with the flowers. did 
you find a method to sort the shapes so that they are rendered from the 
back to the front?

thanks very much for sharing, I hope I can see some pieces in real 
performance soon.
good luck,
