Gilman Fountain piece by Lea Theodorou, Ani Graves ’18, Mackenzie Bretz ’18. Students in professor Allison de Fren’s class, ArtM260, Exploring Virtual Reality, transform the AGC and Johnson-Fowler Hall area and the Gilman Fountain through projection mapping on Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014. Sometimes called spatial augmented reality, projection mapping is a technique for turning objects and buildings into display surfaces for video projection. Ambient music by KOXY. The event was the culmination of a projection mapping assignment for ArtM260, which is a new course developed through the faculty fellowship program with the CDLA (Center for Digital Liberal Arts) with assistance from Mellon postdoctoral fellow Patty Ahn. Students also received projection mapping workshops and guidance from Evan Weitz of the Mapjacks, an LA-based projection mapping collective. (Photo by Marc Campos, Occidental College Photographer)
