Event description

Projection mapping uses 3D structures and videos to create a whole new environment augmented onto the world around us. Objects such as buildings and industrial landscapes can be used as a display surface for video projection, animating their surface and bringing them to life. In this session with Genevieve Smith-Nunes students will go through the projection mapping software environment so that they can continue to develop their ideas after the workshop. This workshop uses a single projector and a computer, something you could try at school or home.

This workshop is now SOLD OUT. To be added to the waiting list please go to our Eventbrite page. If you have tickets and can no longer attend, please contact us
