Projection Mapping Workshops

Projection Mapping Workshops For Media Artists are conducted by Toronto-based new media artist, Maziar Ghaderi. The series prepares artists to use argumentative light as an artistic and narrative device. This can be used in diverse forms of live art productions such as theatre, dance, concerts, and multidisciplinary projects such as site-specific work and participatory installations featuring interactive technologies. Suitable for artists and media/film students with video content to build into their dream installation or performance. Learn Isadora software basics and its intuitive projection mapping tool IzzyMap to projection-map video, animation or images onto 3D objects and incorporate live interactivity.
