And this is exactly what artist Scott Baker is planning to do at Griffith Pioneer Park Museum on the nights of the 11th and the 12th of June within his illuminating workshop. The Melbourne based artist will demonstrate video projection-mapping techniques while the recently created sculptures of Griffith International Sculpture Symposium will act as canvases for his video animations.
“Scott will be sharing his experience in projection-mapping as well as detailing the creative processes involved in producing the visuals that will be mapped onto the gorgeous granite sculptures.” said curator Jason Richardson who also praised Bakers astounding audio visual project Abre Ojos which is an exploration of synthetic music along with geometric animations and extreme audio frequencies and has been a international success and can be found on http://abreojos.net/
The workshops will run from 5-8pm on Saturday and Sunday nights, 11-12 June and will include setting up projectors, creating animations and introductory lessons for the software used to create and map video projections.
“On each night we’ll be mapping video animations to the sculptures and recording the results. We plan to allow workshop participants to gain experience in projection-mapping software, with a number of computers and projectors available to ensure everyone can gain hands-on experience.” promises Jason Richardson.
