Mappathon is a 3-day projection mapping marathon workshop, followed by an art installation exhibited at REVERSE and open to the public. Learn the latest projection mapping techniques and technologies and then collaborate to create a final advanced site-specific project.

Participants will learn the latest technology for mapping video projections on physical surfaces, incorporating multiple surfaces and shapes and moving away from the traditional confines of the screen to sculptures and building facades. The goal of the workshop is to create several projection mapping installations with or without interactivity, where the students create content for complex surfaces through collaboration. At the end of the workshop, participants will showcase their work to the public at REVERSE.
