Title: Introduction to video mapping for artistic creations
The proposed workshop will introduce participants to video art and video mapping and how they are used for artistic creations in performing arts, theatre, spatial design, installations and artworks. It includes preparation, setting up, image calibration, creating the masks, projection. It is an introductory level workshop that requires no previous knowledge or experience of video art and video mapping, and is ideal for anyone who would like a practical introduction that provides enough knowledge to enable further development and experimentation. The participants will work on simple analogue and digital techniques to create and project their artwork. Through the use of specific poems given as a narrative base, the participants will then create simple static and moving images, the projected space and video map their artwork on to it.
