Projection Mapping the Body and the World
The purpose of this project was to explore the artistry and the craft associated with projection mapping on a large scale. Along with Todd Edwards in the St. Olaf Theater Department, I researched existing projection mapping projects to learn from those experiences what was successful and what was not. We explored what is required to not only “bring to life” a static element like a building facade, but also how to transform and even transcend our perceptions of the facade. In addition to the artistry needed to create the spectacle, we researched the equipment (hardware, software, etc… ) required to create the needed content and learned how to connect and present that content through projectors.
