Future Mappers is a 5 hour projection mapping workshop where students will learn basic knowledge about projection mapping technology.
This technology can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. Specialized software, MadMapper, is used to warp and blend projected images so they fit perfectly on irregularly-shaped “screens”. These projections then become independent organisms, expressing characters through their designated language: that of space, light, form, and sound.
Our exercise during the workshop will be choosing the right projector, recognizing how the video content relates to the shape of the surface, and projecting the video onto a simple 2 or 3 dimensional surface with MadMapper 2.0’s new features and video content created in Modul8.
DURING THE 5 HOURS YOU WILL LEARN
- Basic knowledge of choosing the right projector for a project.
- Learn how to make animations and video content using Modul8.
- Learn how to map 2 or 3 dimensional surfaces using MadMapper 2.0 Beta with new features; Multiple inputs, miniMAD export for installation without a computer, 3D surfaces and generate lines.
- Introducing a miniMAD. No more Mac computer for a installation.

CHiKA started as a live visual artist and VJ working with experimental sound composers, 8-bit musicians and club DJs almost a decade ago. She explored her work as an art practice, experimenting with improvisational communication with an audience in real time. Now, she employs evolving technology to bring dynamic interaction of the digital and physical world to the public. Working across a variety of media, including LED, video projection and interactive technologies, CHiKA transforms the energy of a live performance environment by provoking public consciousness and awakening public awareness through interactive installations. She has been a resident fellow at the NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program, an IAC/InterActiveCorp Teaching and Research Fellow for Vimeo, an Eyebeam resident artist and is a BRIC Media Arts Fellow and Artist in Residence at Media Center in 2015.
