In this Verktøykassen (the Toolbox) we will learn how to map video on specific surfaces. It can be an object in the room, a house wall, or simply that you want to be in full control over how much of a surface your video will cover. We will use the software MadMapper.
shift by the artist HC Gilje is a good example of how video is mapped/masked onto various objects. All photos above are borrowed from HC Gilje.

Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place to learn about and try out technical tools, be it both hardware and software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Each time, a new “theme of the day” is launched, and the participants can come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. The toolbox will take place regularly throughout the spring, and is led by game developer and programmer Stian Remvik.
