Projection Mapping uses everyday video projectors, but instead of projecting on a flat screen (e.g. to display a PowerPoint), light is mapped onto any surface, turning common objects of any 3D shape into interactive displays. This workshop teaches the very basics of projection mapping. For most, projection mapping can have an intimidating point of entry if unfamiliar with the technology. Fear not, in this workshop, we will go through how projectors work, using them with the software (MadMapper), and most importantly, we get to play! This workshop is an opportunity to add another tool to the box for presenting your work in new interactive and dynamic ways. Mapping of this nature is a great tool to encourage viewers to slow down through subverting their relationship with objects, time, and space.
Projectors will be provided.
For best results, participants should bring:
- Any videos or images they'd like to experiment with. (If you forget, media will be provided)
Pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line Projection Mapping
About the artist
Jordan Hill is a Canadian (T’Sou-ke Nation) multimedia artist currently residing in Halifax. His work alludes to a growing problem within contemporary culture where the line between fact and fiction becomes blurred. How do we navigate a manipulated world where truth is incredibly difficult to locate? Through the intersection of digital and physical environments, he questions the relationship between the notion of both real and virtual subjects. Jordan’s work aims to intervene normalized social and spatial assumptions we make upon being introduced to spaces, and in what ways we allow the artificial to undermine our own intuition.
