If you are an artist who feels limited by your current canvases, have you thought about using a three-dimensional object? In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn the ins and outs of projection mapping onto 3D objects. Media artist Matthew Waddell will take you through short demos of Qlab and TouchDesigner to create art by turning one thing into something else.

If you would like to see Projection Mapping in action, come to Spectral Illuminations III held at Memorial Park Library on September 21! For more info, go to:
