Workshop: A Guide to Projection Art
Presented by Arts Centre Melbourne and Gertrude Street Projection Festival
Using the software Little Projection Mapping Tool with artist Pierre Proske
Electronic artist Pierre Proske will take you on journey that introduces you to the wonders of Projection Art and Projection Mapping. You will use the open source (and therefore free) Little Projection Mapping Tool (LPMT) to project on temporary sculptural objects such as cubes. This is a unique opportunity to see into a world of unlimited possibilities in the visual sphere.
Pierre is an Australian artist intrigued by the pervasiveness of technology in culture and its relationship to nature. Proske’s work involves exposing the unspoken relationships we have with technology and harnessing machines into exploring new aesthetics. Both resisting and exploiting modern techno-utopian trends, Proske employs humour and the absurd as weapons against the invasion of computer augmented realities. Alongside electronic art projects he also works as a sound designer and electronic musician. He has exhibited or performed in Australia, Sweden, Canada, Iceland, Brazil, Japan, Austria and the Netherlands.
After the workshop, the work developed will be on display both in the foyer of the Digital Learning Hub and then during the Gertrude Street Projection Festival in the Festival Hub area.
