1. The first important experiments in my MA research is the one I collaborate with a student from Wimbledon College of Art, we tried to construct a theatre stage model almost by projection mapping, cause if this works, the budget of a show will be much lower. Intend to create a feeling of 3D, I had an idea about apply the method of 3D painting into animation projection mapping. Here is the final edition of our experiment:
2. Transparent room:

Today I kept working on my latest idea, I hang on the model on the ceiling to feel it and project it:
tested which position can I map it:
After test I still feel worried about if the projector could cover a whole room. I also discussed with Yutong and Silvia, asked about what they think of my latest idea, they said that the first sight of my work looks like Gigi’s work in our interim show. But after I explain that my content will be different from Gigi’s and my will be a small room, they understood. Talk about the idea of my work, they said it is a little bit straight forward to express my idea. And then I said what if I cover some paper on the wall and let the audiences to tear it and explore what’s behind the paper. We discussed a lot. They said it is not continuable and maybe some audience would not notice that or don’t want to tear the paper. So I give up this idea and keep thinking how can I improve it. Then I developed my idea into this:
I was just thinking and keep fiddling with my projector, and then I saw this looks interesting, it seems a hole in my ceiling. So I came up with an idea, how about only project in the corner of a room?
Then I draw my idea:
almost like this, and the perspective will according to the sketch above.
Then I did some test:

Today I searched for some works to learn how they cover a whole room or a very big space, saw this work:
and I love this work so much, so I thought could I also use 2D animation to instead of real people in my work?
Then I searched for the 3D mapping software Jonathan told me before, called “madmapper”, and watched the tutorial to learn how to use it, and also find lots of good 3D mapping works in their website:
I also searched for another software called module8 which is also know from Jonathan. I feel that I have so much to learn and they are so excited.
