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.

The Brutal and the Delicate: Steel Combined with Soft Materials

Carl Reed

Tuition $1,150
Code S0101-23

Throughout the history of art, steel is a material commonly associated with industry, violence, and strength. This workshop challenges such connections by investigating ways that steel can become visually delicate, and inventing new meanings and visual relationships through combining steel with materials that contain opposite characteristics. Exercises address both technical and creative inquiries regarding how steel is cut, shaped, and physically joined, as well as how to challenge material assumptions when steel becomes a secondary rather than primary compositional element. We explore the aesthetic and technical consequences of combining steel with soft, vulnerable, contradictory, and unexpected materials.

Materials Lab: Raw and Cooked

Lan Tuazon

Tuition $1,150
Code S0202-23

Raw and Cooked is a materials lab exploring five techniques of material invention: densify, reconfigure, transform, design, and cultivate. This class encourages experimentation with traditional techniques of production including casting, papermaking, and weaving. Accompanying lectures on garbology, vernacular architecture, secondary-use design, and current industrial models of material manufacture help us to understand both physical properties and their interconnected social, political, and ethical meanings. Dispensing with the notion of nature as a standing supply of raw materials, this course exercises art in a circular economy by sourcing surplus, waste, and by-products as the resources for making which contain inherent potential for meaning.
