This Friday my fellow NEAC member, Marc Pettersen, will be hosting an exciting event showcasing his newest artistic pursuit- projection mapped animation.  In the atmosphere created by DJ Miah Love of Fake Life, animated projection work will transform the walls of our little gallery.

The event runs from at 8pm to 12am
An 18 and older event
It is a suggested donation of $5 at the door to get in
Cash bar all night long
And a 12' screen for video gaming

For more information, Check out the facebook event.

So, what is projection mapping anyway?
By using 3D mapping tools you can project onto any screen, irregular or not, and create any number of  video installations. Here's a very extravagant example:

This fundraiser will fuel the pilot projection program for after school activities in the Middletown area. The projectors, when not being used excite and educate young artists, will be used in the MAC650 gallery for neighborhood movie and video game nights.

If you would like to hear more about Marc's vision for projection mapping and how he plans to work with his students on further project check out his Kickstarter page:

So come join the fun. We'll be dancing, drinking, and gaming on a 12' screen all night.

Here's a few more examples of projection mapping where you can see a little better how the software shapes it's projection surfaces:
