Animating Space, Engaging Place: A Projection Mapping Workshop

“Animating Space, Engaging Place” was an immersive workshop at ADM offering participants intensive hands-on experience in using animated installation as a medium and a site for investigation of moving image interdisciplinary practice.

This 5-day workshop organized by Kristy H.A. Kang and led by Rose Bond allowed ADM undergraduate students new to projection mapping, the opportunity to create site-specific installation prototypes inspired by the history of the Chinese Heritage Centre (CHC). The installations, tied to place, identity and community, were grounded by research into the Centre and the “Nantah Pictorial Exhibit” currently on view at the CHC.

Participants were encouraged to reflect on the history of cultural space, with its layers of memory and story, then create work that combined live action footage, photographs and overlays of animation.

The resulting projection mapped prototypes were premiered following the opening reception of the symposium “Emergent Visions: Adjacency and Urban Screens.”
