Workshop : Intro to VJing and Projection Mapping

Presented by the Arts Centre Melbourne and Gertrude St Projection Festival.

Develop your skills in VJing and Projection Mapping with renowned visual artist Kit Webster in collaboration with the Gertrude St Projection Festival.

In this informative tutorial, media artist Kit Webster will demonstrate some of the most cutting edge examples of new media installation using projection mapping today. He will then go on to explain his own processes of producing audio visual sculptures and will also go over the tips and tricks he has developed to create a VJ set using the software ‘VDMX’.

Kit will explain how to build your own VJ rig so you can provide live visuals for parties and events and will talk you through the process of creating a projection mapping sculpture. You will learn the steps involved in designing the sculpture and how to prepare the visuals for mapping the video using Madmapper (click here to download a free demo of Madmapper).

Kit Webster – Kit is a mixed-media artist based in Melbourne, Australia. His works, which range from site-specific projections to digital sculptures, utilise precision programming and visualisation techniques to create captivating immersive environments. In continually pushing the boundaries of technology and art, Kit is not afraid to present experimental concepts designed to expose possibilities for the creation of a new kind of audiovisual aesthetic.

Last year he created ‘Hypercube’, a programmed LED-illuminated 4D cubic sculpture commissioned for the ‘White Night Melbourne’ festival and also for exhibition at the Abbotsford Convent arts precinct, and ‘Plateaux’, a multi-faceted laser-cut audiovisual sculpture illuminated with mapped projections, commissioned and acquired by Bendigo Art Gallery for their permanent collection.
