Design Delight: Re-Projections for Expanding Spaces

when 4 August 2019 - 16 August 2019
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 3 EC
fee EUR 700

In this course, you will discover and approach light as a sensitive tool to describe, expand and embed visual storytelling into experiential space.

Video Projection Mapping can turn almost any surface into a dynamic display challenging the viewer from ordinary observation to a creative shift into an immersive experience. The course wants to explore 'spacing and timing' through the new spectrum of possibilities that new projection techniques and luminous design offer. Techniques and craft usually involved in traditional visual art, will be applied to contemporary re-projection methods, where handcrafted abilities work as background for computational art.

Through a 'Hands on' approach, we will inquire into new exploratory ways to create visual content and narrative solutions for augmented installations, live acts, media design and architecture.

The course is structured into modules around theoretical studies and workshop’s practice with the focus on:

• MANIFESTO: augmenting emotions < > extending aesthetic
• THE THEORY’s: Ana-morphism, Omography, Re-projection
• THE MEDIUM’s: Practical boards, Input < > Output
• THE TOOL’s: Workshop practise*, Animotion 2 Videomapping
• THE SET’s: Shared Perception – a collaborative project

*participation @ Genius Loci Weimar (festival of audio-visual art and interactive projections)

An innovative craft board augmenting the role of traditional design techniques applied to the new media, towards an original development of visual storytelling. The focus will be on shaping new pattern towards a new video aesthetic, where computed system creates an active dialogue with dynamic luminous design. Any hybrid timing so become the main subject of a frame-by-frame motion, where any individual approach creates a unique signature.
