MadMapping (CH/ FR) [ENGLISH]

Fonderie Kugler from May 24th to May 27th included


MadMapping is a video-mapping workshop that will focus on a technique that consists of projecting images or video onto architectural surfaces or physical objects.
For a long time this technique was restricted to experts using custom tools. With the release of MadMapper, this technique can now be accomplished within a few mouse clicks.

During 4 days, the newly renovated space in the Kugler factory will be a camping ground for the participants to experiment, create, share ideas and perform mystical rituals.

The workshop will be conducted in the presence of: François Wunschel [1024 Architecture], Boris Edelstein [Modul8], Yannick Jacquet [AntiVJ]
The workshop will end with a closing video-cocktail-DJ-party where every attendee will have the opportunity to present their results publicly.
