Future Mappers: Projection Mapping Intro for Beginners

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

Future Mappers 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 onto irregularly shaped surfaces.

Students will learn the newest techniques in projection mapping and leave with their own projection-mapped artwork. They will also enjoy free thirty-day access to MadMapper.
