VVVV * Mapping workshop at University of Seoul

Friday, August 26th, 2011

All this week we’ve been with a VVVV hungry bunch at University of Seoul(서울시립대학교). Minha Yang‘s talented art/design students came up with a range of challenging and intriguing ideas, and then patched them up in our favourite multipurpose toolkit VVVV.

After 4 days, the students were tracking motion, visualising sound, mapping onto 3D objects/architecture, creating multi-layered content, capturing video, and making complete interactive installations.

We were very much impressed with every student, and they all worked hard to absorb a range of patching concepts and styles. Awesome bunch. Watch out for them!
