LIGHT CURTAIN // workshop, for 12+
Saturday, 18th May, 10.00−13.00, RogLab
creator of the workshop: Staš Vrenko
co-mentor: Ivana Osećanski Despić
Looking for a proper backdrop for your play or your party? Try with light! But watch out, RogLab takes no shortcuts: you will make the projector yourself and then create light drawings in space.
You will process your ideas and drawings into vector images and use a laser cutter to turn them into physical matrices to be projected onto different surfaces inside and outside. You will learn the anatomy of a projector and tackle the basics of electron theory of ultra light LED-lights with simple control circuits. Thusly created projector will be yours to take home at the end of the workshop.
