This workshop introduces you to projection mapping, allowing you to map your video content onto any architectural surface in the real world, even if it’s not flat! With projection mapping you can project a new skin onto common objects of any 3D shape, deconstructing and redefining them to create wild new perspectives for live performance or interactive installations.
Learn different concepts and techniques through demonstration and hands-on application by doing exercises. Understand the challenges of different surface geometries and materials. Technical considerations will also be covered, including projector operation, outputting video from a Mac computer, media resolution, and editing using a simple media editor. As a group, the class will go through a series of instructions on basic use of software for the creation of dynamic video art, VJing, and projection mapping, including Modul8 and MadMapper.
Expand your video ideas beyond the flat screen while transforming your visual environment!
