3D Projection Mapping aka. Spatial Augmented Reality is a technique to give new meaning to real structures and transform them into a carrier medium by using video projections. In this one-day workshop the participants will have the opportunity to experience conceptual and manufacturing aspects of this technique in an applied process.The result of the workshop will be the presentation of a jointly designed anamorphous media installation in the style of a diorama.By playing with perspectives the motto of this year’s European Forum can be visually experienced.
