MadMapper: Official Release event and four day workshop
The MadMapper is a tool for simplifying the process of mapping projections onto physical surfaces. The software is a collaboration between Modul8 Team and 1024 Architecture. It uses an OS X 10.6 framework called Syphon, so that you can use Modul8 and MadMapper together in order to map existing content you have created for use in Modul8. Additionally MadMapper can be used with any other software that supports Syphon, like Quarz Composer, VDMX, Max/Msp/Jitter and many others.
We are pleased to announce that the launch event will take place on May 26th during this years edition of the Mapping Festival in Geneva, Switzerland.
A four day workshop will take place on the dates surrounding the release of MadMapper. For more information about this workshop and how to apply for it acces the following link:
