VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Introduction to Projection Mapping

Nov 30 - Dec 9, 2021

Tuesdays & Thursdays, 3PM - 5PM

Concept

In this course we explore how projected image can be mapped to a variety of surfaces and materials to embellish, enhance, enliven, and/or activate them. Each student explores how projection mapping may be used as a way of creating active and time-based surfaces in their works. Demonstrations cover the three main aspects of this process: digital video and image manipulation, creating a 3D volume out of materials such as foamcore, cardboard, and fabric, and mapping digital media to constructed forms via computer and projector. All students should have access to a cheap projector for the duration of the workshop.

Media

Basic foam core, cardboard, and fabric construction, digital video and image manipulation, projection mapping software, mapping to 3D surfaces via computer and projector.

This virtual class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 – 5PM MST via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.us). An Anderson Ranch staff member coordinates  the class via the online platform.

Vessel Potential

Ellie Richards

Tuition $995
Code W1110-22

This workshop explores sculptural form while creating functional (or not so functional) containers. It expands on the expressive capacities of wood as a medium and the vessel as an engaging and evocative object. Students explore vessels in a range of scales using techniques that lend themselves to the construction of creative containers. Demonstrations include bandsaw boxes, coopering, carving, steam bending and bent lamination. Experienced and beginning woodworkers alike find this "test kitchen" atmosphere a refreshing space in which to work and open up endless design possibilities that provide valuable lessons in the craft of woodworking.

The Center: Object Design and Architecture

Ronald Rael, Del Harrow

Tuition $1,700
Code S1111-22

The innovation of 3-D printing has opened the doors for artists and designers to find new ways to access and develop built environments, architecture and multiple objects that create bold impact. This socially-driven workshop considers how technologies, design, interaction and formal concerns help to aid and give agency to the intervention with, and disruption of, the consequences of existing societal and physical barriers. Creative thinking is encouraged as the basis for finding ways to use objects and constructs to enable new forms of consciousness. This class is in its third year of a 3-year program. Please contact Liz Ferrill for more information about a new section in 2023.
