SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 7TH FROM 1 TO 6PM

Projection mapping is a digital technique that manipulates videos to create the illusion of deconstruction and redefinition in physical shapes by moving away from traditional flat projection surfaces.
This workshop serves as a comprehensive introduction to methods of creating projection mapping for beginners. The tools used in the workshop are MadMapper and Modul8. Students will receive a fully-functional 30-day trial version of the software to create their own projection mapping. This workshop is intended for students who want to learn how to develop projection mapping projects for future events, art installations, and performances.
