This years edition is upon us. Once again, 10 days of video projection art in its multitude of flavors of performance, installations, workshops, presentations and clubbing all unfolding within the birthplace of Modul8, Geneva, Switzerland.
The photo in the above graphic was created by Modul8 team member and co-founder Boris Edelstein. And yes! MadMapper was used, but in a way one would least expect. As always, the simple solution is best! Get the model to fool around with the software for a bit, tighten up things
and voila! There really is nothing more powerfully compelling to look at then the human form, and even more so when adding projections to it.
As always, the focus is on the art of projection. So why not try to make that part of everything including the promotional material?
And here my brief copy ends and the Mapping Team copy begins.

This year the festival will focus on the technical aspects of video mapping, i.e. video-projection on surfaces that is one of the fastest growing art mediums in the world. Highlights include:
- Video projection on bodies by our 2011 visual.
- The official release of MadMapper, a new video mapping software created by GarageCUBE (Modul8) and 1024_architecture. The release will be accompanied by an exclusive 3 day workshop.
- A mapping workshop presented by Get Festival from Porto, Portugal.
