Projecting the Future: Projection Mapping with MadMapper

In-person at InterAccess - Register Here!

Projection mapping transcends the confines of standard screens, morphing ordinary visuals into extraordinary displays that dazzle and delight. It's not just about projecting light; it's about sculpting it to your environment and content.

Picture this: a mannequin with a face alive through projected visuals or a simple parking lot turned into a dynamic pop-up concert venue, rivaling the visuals of grand stadiums. Such is the magic of projection mapping!

In this immersive weekend workshop, not only will you take an introductory dive into the artistry behind this medium, but you'll also acquire tangible technical skills. By the end, you'll be proficient in the basics of software utilization, calibration techniques, and content creation—equipping you to kickstart your own projection mapping projects.

This workshop is a synergistic collaboration between InterAccess, Derooted Immersive and GarageCube. Pioneers in the field, Derooted brings over 15 years of esteemed expertise, with projects for giants like the AGO, BMW, and Disney; GarageCube shines as a beacon of tech innovation, developing cutting-edge software for Projection/Lighting/Laser setups, live video synthesis, and intricate mapping.

Embrace this unique opportunity to explore, learn, and get inspired!
