Mana BSMT Future Mappers:
Projection Mapping Intro for Beginners

Get hands-on instruction from Mana New Media Resident Artist CHiKA in this one-day projection mapping workshop for beginners at Mana BSMT.

Future Mapper will provide students with a practical foundation for making installations using MadMapper. Projection mapping technology can turn almost any surface into a dynamic video display. MadMapper can warp animation and blend projected images so they fit perfectly on irregularly shaped projection surfaces.

Students will learn the newest techniques in projection mapping. Students will leave with their own projection-mapped artwork, and will also enjoy free 30-day access to MadMapper to continue to develop their practice.
