Mappathon™ is inspired by the hackathon, an event where computer programmers, graphic designers, interface designers, and project managers collaborate intensively on projects within a limited time frame. It was founded by CHiKA in collaboration with Scott Fitzgerald, Boris Edelstein, and Ilan Katin in 2013. We’ve remixed the traditional hackathon and designed a variety of Projection Mapping and LED Light Mapping workshops for creative minds of every level.

Mappathon™ is a hands-on, problem-based learning workshop. We create a fast pace, momentum learning through the design development process of Discover, Define, Design, and Developing closely with the students. Participants will be introduced to MadMapper, modul8, and Vezer, and will be given a fully functional, 30-day trial of each software, depending on the workshop types.

Mappathon™ is a perfect STEM education for younger students. We are open to working with your school, organization, festival, or corporation to create the design process through projection mapping technology.

Mappathon™




It introduces participants to the latest projection mapping technologies and techniques, enabling them to create site-specific interactive or static projection mapped installations.

Education
The instructor will provide a step-by-step walkthrough each software. Participants will learn how to make animations from static images, mix video content, and projection map their creations onto specific 3-dimensional surfaces within the space.

Creative Execution
Participants will work together through an ideation phase to create a collaborative installation. They will experience the process of an art installation from concept to public presentation, further developing and exercising their newfound skills.

Presentation
Participants will have the opportunity to present their installation within the space. By seeing others interact with and respond to the piece, they will learn how projection mapping projects can be applied in innumerable ways, and benefit from constructive critique.

LED Mappathon™

  



It is structured in a similar manner to the projection mapping Mappathon™. It introduces participants to the latest LED mapping technologies and techniques, enabling them to create site-specific interactive or static LED installations.

Education
The instructor will provide a step-by-step walkthrough each software. There will be a review of what hardware is needed for an LED installation, and detailed instructions of how to assemble it all. Participants will also learn how to create animations that will be translated through the software to control LED pixel behavior.

Creative Execution
Participants will work together through an ideation phase to create a collaborative installation. They will experience the process of an art installation from concept to public presentation, further developing and exercising their newfound skills.

Presentation
articipants will have the opportunity to showcase their installation within the space. By seeing others interact with and respond to the piece, they will learn how LED mapping projects can be applied in innumerable ways.

Interactive Mappathon™



The Interactive Mappathon™ is the advanced version of Mappathon™ that will be taught within a limited time frame. Instead of a singular collaborative piece, participants will create their own individual, interactive projection mapping installation.

Education
The instructor will provide a general walkthrough each software. Participants will learn how to make animations from static images, mix video content, and projection map their creations onto specific 3-dimensional surfaces within the space.

Interactivity
The instructor will review how to make the projection mapping installation interactive using sound reactive or OSC controls. In certain versions of the workshop, specialized programmers will instruct participants on how to develop their interactive ideas further.

Creative Execution
Participants will come up with ideas and anticipate the materials required for their own project. They will experience the process of an art installation from concept to public presentation, further developing and exercising their newfound skills.
Presentation / Exhibition
Participants will have the opportunity to showcase their installation in a public space. By seeing others interact with and respond to the piece, they will receive constructive critique of how they can improve their own artistic practice.
