Thank you for participating in Mappathon© Eyebeam with CHiKA, at Eyebeam. In the next few weeks, you may receive a survey about the workshop.


Mappathon© Eyebeam
Mappathon is a 3-day projection mapping marathon workshop, followed by a week-long art installation exhibited at Eyebeam and open to the public.  Learn the latest projection mapping techniques and technologies, and then collaborate to create a final advanced site-specific project, from conception to execution and maintenance.

This workshop teaches participants the latest technology for mapping video projections on physical surfaces, moving away from the traditional confines of the screen to sculptures and building facades and interiors.  The primary software tools taught in the workshop are MadMapper and Modul8.  MadMapper enables designers and artists to realize their ideas without getting bogged down in technical details.

Participants, in teams, will develop content for complex surfaces and then create several interactive and/or non-interactive projection mapping installations in the Eyebeam workshop space.

Participants will be given a fully functional, time-limited, version of MadMapper and Modul8; student discount eligibility will be  This should be installed and activated prior to the beginning of the workshop and legible to student discount for future purchase.
