VRTO and FIVARS are proud to co-host a 2-part intensive projection mapping workshop taught by Maziar Ghaderi at the Toronto Media Arts Centre!
This workshop is suitable for anyone with a basic knowledge in operating software, specifically Isadora (note: the software is $300 for a license BUT you can download an unlimited version for free at: https://troikatronix.com/get-it/ - with the only limitation being that you can't save your file. Often, people leave it open on their laptop so that they can try various ideas. We recommend familiarizing yourself with the software before the workshop! Furthermore, you must be familiar with it in order to register for part 2 of the workshop.)
The Projection Mapping Workshop series prepares media/visual artists to use argumentative light as an artistic and narrative device in diverse forms of live art productions such as theatre, dance, concerts, site-specific installations, storefront advertising, event activation and public/city arts.
PART ONE - Intro to Projection Mapping (JULY 7) – $150
This workshop will teach you the basics of working with Isadora and it’s intuitive projection mapping tool, IzzyMap. Learn to use Isadora to projection map your video, animation, or images onto 3D physical objects and incorporate live interactivity into your installation.
PART TWO - Light, Form + The Stage (JULY 21) – $150
This hands-on course teaches students to customize graphical content (video, image) and then map this content on to physical 3D objects using Isadora, a node-based graphic programming software. Students will have the opportunity to put these techniques to use by workshopping with actors, local curators, and other key players in the theatre/performance art industry.
