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.

TouchDesigner is one of the fastest growing and most powerful software tools for realtime video applications. Developed in Canada and used by video and New Media professionals around the globe, this dynamic tool can be used to create anything from custom VJ performances, to live camera systems for dance or theatre, gallery installations, and even mapping realtime election results on the side of the Empire State Building.

During this six week workshop we will develop fundamental TouchDesigner skills while working towards individual projects that will be presented in TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary’s U-Hall space during the final class. This workshop will guide participants through the process of realizing their projection projects from start to finish. Projection technology will be provided as well as guided instruction catered to developing and presenting your project.

No TouchDesigner experience required but familiarity with computers and digital video is considered an asset. Students will be required to bring their own laptop preloaded with Derivative TouchDesigner 099 (free download) and are encouraged to bring their own projects, questions, ideas, and technology.
