Firestation, Dublin – 7th October, 2017 from 10am to 5pm
Video Projection Mapping With Rebecca Smith from Urban Projections.
Fire Station’s Video Projection Workshop will explore the fundamental principles of video projection mapping onto architectural and sculptural spaces, using industry standard mapping software, ‘Madmapper’. The session will focus on showcasing video content beyond a 2-dimensional screen, and instead bring architectural and sculptural space to life with pixels. This workshop is aimed at visual artists who want to up-skill on the practice of projecting video directly onto 3D surfaces for gallery installations or outdoor public projects.
BOOK NOW! – 6 participants maximum, only a few spaces remaining! Participants will cover:
- preparing correct input files
- projector calibration
- output warping
- good-practice workflow techniques
Further details and requirements can be seen on our website.

Urban Projections is the work and collaborations of multimedia artist Rebecca Smith. Fusing hand-crafted art-forms with digital technologies, her work seeks to surprise and engage audiences with it’s playful tone and interactivity. Constantly striving and seeking ways to push the boundaries of her discipline, Rebecca creates unique digital experiences. Rebecca’s work seeks to discover new, and original, ways of presenting digital media for audience interaction, pushing the boundaries of creative possibility and pioneering new approaches to mixed media application.
Above all, her work always remains accessible to its audience, regardless of the intricacy of its design. Rebecca’s work has been viewed in prestigious venues throughout the UK and Europe, such as The Saatchi Gallery, Tate St Ives, Nottingham Contemporary, Firstsite, The Wilson and The Royal Albert Hall. However, her work is equally at home on the streets and in unusual outdoor locations. With a heavy influence of street art culture, and love of abandoned sites and objects, she uses forgotten spaces as a canvas for much her work. From 8-storey tower block, to pedestrian underpass or forest location, Rebecca has realised an array of mobile projection systems which further her performance possibilities and allow for truly site specific application (UK)(www.urbanprojections.com).
