Workshop
February 18, 19, 25, 26, 2017, 12 pm–6 pm

This workshop interrogates our perception of dimensions through the optical illusion of video mapping and through digital and analog visual effects (image compositing and stagecraft). The course is designed for visually oriented professional artists interested expanding their media arts practice and who wish to experiment with recording and presentation techniques applied to small and medium-scale video installation projects.

Participants will be introduced to particular methods, equipment and software including the following: a production studio environment, the Sony a7s II camera, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Modul8, Mad Mapper, video projectors and projection surfaces. Priority will be placed on offering a space for discussion, experimentation and creation, with the goal of encouraging a meaningful discourse concerning the significance of light moving over objects, the history of illusion and the life-cycle of materials.
