Polyscreening: Design and configuration of multi-projections

During this workshop, participants will be introduced to various projection systems and will learn how to configure multi-projection installations and create content for them. As well as an overview of recent projects using these technologies, the workshop will deal with the technical components, the modules, and the production line used in multi-projector installations. Towards the end of the first session, participants will have developed a work plan for the realization of a piece of synchronized multichannel video art.
The workshop will also deal with various aspects of video art practice, including shooting techniques as adapted to multiple projections and the processing of data gathered during the shoot. Participants will also be introduced to digital editing tools, image processing, image composition, and multi-projector synchronization systems. Finally, participants will be given the opportunity to prepare, edit and present the videos filmed during the workshop.
