Intro to Projection Mapping with TouchDesigner
Organized as a 3-part workshop, this series will introduce participants to the TouchDesigner interface and standard techniques of projection mapping to turn objects and spaces into display surfaces for video projection. The first session will be an introduction to all the tools available in TouchDesigner for mapping surfaces, walls and buildings, while the second part of the workshop will be spent developing and testing out ideas through tape-mapping in the gallery and wall-mounted foam core structures. During the sessions, each participants will be given a projector and a surface to test-drive their creations in the InterAccess gallery. The final session will be spent learning about the technical details and hardware requirements of the projection setup with time to present and experience final results.
