One extended subsidy is available for this workshop:


This workshop introduces you to projection mapping, allowing you to map your video content onto any architectural surface in the real world, even if it’s not flat! With projection mapping you can project a new skin onto common objects of any 3D shape, deconstructing and redefining them to create wild new perspectives for live performance or interactive installations.

Learn different concepts and techniques through demonstration and hands-on application by doing exercises with a partner. Understand the challenges of different surface geometries and materials. Learn to use Madmapper's powerful video mapping software, including tracing lines, layering surfaces, saving scenes, and media management.Learn about MIDI/key mapping to be able to control functions with keyboard and controller, exporting to Minimad and intro to controlling DMX fixtures with Madlight. If there's time, you'll be introduced to some aspects of Modul8, software for real time video mixing and compositing, and how it works with Syphon. Technical considerations will also be covered, including projector operation, outputting video from a Mac computer, media resolution, and editing using a simple media editor.

The workshop time includes documentation of your in-class ideas.

Expand your video ideas beyond the flat screen while transforming your visual environment!

Refunds: Class sizes are small, and our instructors need to be paid–if you can’t make a class that you’ve signed up for, we need time to alert wait-listed participants. VIVO presently asks that withdrawals from workshops be requested by emailing at least 12 days prior to the workshop date, if you would like to receive a refund minus a $5 administration fee. Thanks!

VIVO Media Arts

VIVO MEDIA ARTS CENTRE, incorporated in 1973 as the Satellite Video Exchange Society (SVES), is Vancouver’s oldest media arts access centre. VIVO continues to fulfill its founding vision by directly supporting independent artists, community-based producers and activists to develop and exchange their skills in a supportive environment. Our members gather around the tools and material means of production to invent new understandings, new genres and new friendships. Reflecting both the diversity of contemporary technologies and the symbiotic communities that coalesce around new forms of knowledge and creativity, our programming fosters formal, aesthetic and critical approaches to media arts practice. VIVO builds an audience of makers, organizers and critics through artists in residence, lectures, workshops, performances, exhibitions and curatorial and archival research. As an integral artist run centre in Vancouver, our resources and facilities will continue to inform and influence engagement in all levels of media art investment.
