Mutant multiform screens
Mutant multiform screens (totem vs. locket screens). This workshop explores the different cinematic forms that have challenged the notion of the screen as a flat rectangular plane and which have generated experiences that move in areas that are known today as expended cinema. We will look (among other things) at audiovisual and spatial narratives, visual musical, projections on three-dimensional objects (mapping or video-objects), tracking and visualization of movement, and of the poetics present in this type of project. We will also work around totemic screens (cinema, billboards, mega-projections) and cameo screens (installations, micro-projections, mobiles.)
The workshop is made up of three theory and practical sessions that focus on planning and creating an exercise that reconfigures the traditional notion of the screen, exploring the integration of analogue and digital tools. We will review methods and ways of manipulating images in real time (mapping and tracking software), analogue projection forms, etc.
