With Simone Jones, Alvaro Cassinelli, Julian Oliver, Daniel Canogar & Pablo Valbuena.The workshop aims to use open hardware and open code tools to create prototypes for exploring image technologies and mechanisms of perception.
Core themes: image technologies from their origins to the present: perspective, lenses, anamorphosis, panoramas, optical toys, magic lanterns, effects, optical illusions, etc., as well as projects that expand conventional notions of projection and screen: augmented reality, the use of projections on three-dimensional surfaces and physical objects, immersion environments, etc.
A maximum of 10 projects to be developed will be selected.
Medialab-Prado will cover lodging at a youth hostel and flight expenses for the authors of the selected projects and papers.
