Projection mapping gives the artist the possibility to create illusions of deconstruction and redefinition of physical shapes, right in front of your eyes. It is a technical process, wrapping projected virtual content around a real world object, much like a second skin of light. It is a great way to create amazement and never fails to astonish. The workshop will be a comprehensive introduction to the tools and methods to create these illusions, as well as an approach to ideas and concepts for such projects, based on an example created collectively during the classes. Learn an introduction to workflow and technical skills.
