MATZERclass Mixed Reality en de theatrale ruimte

P1100626_resizeIn deze tweedaagse workshop worden de mogelijkheden verkend van het combineren van driedimensionale analoge ruimte en digitale ruimte. Cursisten gaan aan de slag met het projecteren van digitaal beeld op een wijze waarin deze perspectivisch samenvalt met de analoge ruimte; deze techniek wordt ook wel projectionmapping genoemd Een toegankelijk en gratis softwarepakket als de Video Projection Tools (VPT) wordt geïntroduceerd en toegepast zodat de deelnemer deze kan gebruiken in zijn/haar eigen praktijk. Ook wordt aandacht besteed aan meer geavanceerde digitale 3D technieken die het mogelijk maken het mixen van ruimtes verder te verkennen.

Deelnemers doen zelf ervaring op door in groepjes te werken aan diverse opdrachten. Aan het eind van elke opdracht presenteren de groepen hun werk aan elkaar. Uiteindelijk zal worden gewerkt aan een eindpresentatie, die is bedoeld als samenvatting van het creatieve werkproces. Deze is openbaar toegankelijk en vloeit over in het programma HighTechTheatre, waarin andere interactieve podiumkunsten worden gepresenteerd.

Below you can read our workshop proposal as send to the Scenofest organisation.

Outline of Proposed Workshop of max 300 words

In this two day workshop students are invited to explore the possibilities of combining or mixing analogue and digital space. Students are asked to find a new visual language in the intersection of these spaces. Special attention is given to the challenge to create meaning and interaction between these spaces instead of only doubling space by using projection.

Both 2D and 3D digital graphics are projected on a physical space in a perpectively correct way. To facilitate this exploration 3D engine software and projection mapping techniques[1] are used. The physical space will be a scale model for practical reasons. The graphics are not mere static videos but live interactive environments. For which parts of the Performance Engine will be used. Depending on the time simple forms of live interaction are explored.
