Projection mapping is a technique used to create illusionary effects capable of reconstructing the physical world through light. This workshop is designed for animators and video artists working on immersive light-based installations and dynamic video displays. Beginner knowledge of video software and using projectors is an asset but not required.

An introduction to Modul8 & Madmapper will enable participants to use videos and images to activate 3D surfaces. During this 5-hour workshop, participants will have a chance to work hands-on with projectors and props to experiment with animation and distortion FX. This workshop will also cover typical projector troubleshooting such as projector types, set-up, and installing for gallery spaces.

IMPORTANT: Participants need to bring their own computer (Windows, OSX). TAIS will have a limited number of computers available for participants, available first-come first-serve. For participants bringing their own machines, please check hardware requirements and (if your computer meets these requirements) and before coming to the workshop download and install the following software:

– Madmapper:
