This Projection Mapping Workshop is conducted by London-based artist, Ben Sheppee. The workshop looks at different types of projection mapping, explains technology used, introduces some software training, and helps attendees to flexibly manipulate their imagery onto 3d objects.
This skill set can be used in galleries, theatres and concerts and also on buildings and in outdoor environments... This course is suitable for artists and media/film students creating video content, who want to build installations or apply their work in site specific environments.
There will be two presentations and a practical session as part of this workshop...
• The first presentation will look at different examples of projection mapping and give breakdowns on some of the projects Ben Sheppee has undertaken.
• The practical part of the course we will focus on "Resolume" software and work through examples of projecting on different objects.
• The final presentation will show other techniques, softwares and technologies that are available for this kind of work to build up an industry picture.
All Digital materials included. Bring your own laptop (and projector if possible) - Several projectors available subject to demand.
About Ben Sheppee
Ben Sheppee (b.1978, Bristol, UK) has been part of the visuals and AR scene for over twenty years. His works lean towards minimalist abstraction, creating worlds where the elemental play of structure, light, and icon compete for the leading role.
His career began when he started creating slide projection collages as backdrops for bands in London nightclubs while studying for his BA (hons) in Graphic Arts at UEL. Early works were largely experiments in photography and motion graphics which saw him create light collages with multiple slide and video projectors. Often looking to interfere with digital processes and explore deconstructed aesthetics, initial ideas included intentionally contaminating developer liquids and damaging slides in order to display ‘broken’ visuals, which he then scaled up through projection. In his animations he similarly sought to dissect and interpret in order to find hidden beauty between the balance of natural forms and digital clarity.
