Mentor: Gabriel Vallecillo Márquez
Intensive introductory workshop
Duration: 3 days, 15 hours
Dates: 18, 19, 25 of April Location: Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (ZK/U), Siemensstraße 27, 10551 Berlin
Objective: Provide the enrolee with the necessary knowledge, tools and an overview of techniques with hands-on exercises to start exploring and initiate themselves into the world of projection mapping.
Description: This course covers the basic and fundamental knowledge of uses (for artistic, commercial, socio-political purposes) and formats (architectural, stage, showrooms, events, products, art gallery) of projection mapping. It introduces the enrolee to the diverse available tools, softwares and hardwares, as well as an insight on the basic steps to produce and narrate through projection mapping. During the course we will use MadMapper software, hands-on, learn the interface, functions, materials and mapping techniques for different scenarios.
The programme will consist of two consecutive days of workshop (11 hours total, including time-breaks) and a third day of workshop (4 hours) to take place one week later, where students will have the time to produce/draft a small projection mapping project. In this last session, enrolees will present their individual projects, receive feedback and have the option for a one-on-one further feedback and recommendations from the mentor.
Who is it for?
Curators, art exhibit production managers and art handlers who want to take more control over an art exhibition's design, installation, mounting and narrating possibilities.
Artists: who want to explore new ways of narrating -away from the flat rectangle screen-, exploring the possibilities of architectural projection mapping, indoor projection mapping and the wide range of innovative possibilities of projecting onto physical objects, natural surfaces, textures and making them come alive with moving images.
Musicians, DJs and VJs who want to further engage and awe their audiences, using stage mapping design as tool to create a powerful connection between the music and the moving image on multiple simultaneous surfaces for their concerts or festivals.
Filmmakers: who want to expand their visual narratives to other formats and forms, such as multiple synchronic narrative screens/objects/textures to further the cinematic experience.
Event planners, commercial showroom and publicity producers who want to take advantage of the medium to captivate their potential clients, make the event memorable and striking, using the product itself as a projection surface, designing stages, immersive experiences or showrooms with projection mapping to animate, transform and have imagination take over the clients.
