This hands-on workshop introduces participants to video mapping techniques using the open-source projection mapping software VPT. This application is a popular tool used in media arts and theatre for projecting video footage  onto a multiplicity of different  forms and surfaces. By adapting a projection to a given space, it is able to combine recorded and live footage in real time. To begin, participants will develop a project based on observed examples of video creation and schematization of the process. Secondly, participants will create a projection model based off of prior examples and influences. Lastly, using the tools participants have learned they will do research and develop their own project to be presented at the finale of the workshop.
