Projection mapping workshop: Show and play Tickets
1:00pm, Sat 29 July, 2017
Customs House Library, NSW
The second in a 2 part series, this workshop gives you a hands-on experience using projection mapping tools and templates.
This workshop builds on the foundations you learnt in the introductory seminar to projection mapping. Under the know-how of leading multimedia artist, Cindi Drennan, develop basic skills in projection mapping, including use of different techniques and tools and tips to consider when you create a project.
The Customs House Library training lab is equipped with everything you need for this workshop including Adobe Creative Suite and Digital. You'll get to practise with 2D and 3D templates to master design methods, then take your artwork from the screen to a physical space.
We'll set up the equipment and tools to reflect a typical workflow configuration used for content creation for projection mapping and explain the techniques and specific formats needed. We'll also provide a demonstration of software used for rapid prototyping and live projection mapping. Take turns operating the equipment with help from professionals and discover the exciting feeling of illuminating spaces with projection art.
You might be familiar with projection mapping from Sydney's annual Vivid Festival. The wow-factor of the Opera House and Customs House projections are a magical demonstration of the power of this art form.
