?D challenge, conceived for future designers, provides a playground to examine 3D, immersion, light and time. Projection mapping event production is treated here as an environment for interdisciplinary learning and problem solving while keeping up with emerging technologies. 2020/21 results were delivered as mixed-media installations located in multiple spaces.
Immersive Cube – a huge projection-enabled cubic exhibition space, was set for the first time in Royal Academy of Art, Antwerp, in 2019. Setup utilized for testing the cubemap visuals in the frame of the WDPP (Projection Mapping) PJAIT Warsaw course, was set by Yelizaveta Hladchenko and Viktoriia Suvorova in 2020 as part of their BA work.
2021 incarnation of the project has been carried out physically and virtually at the same time, allowing for real-time visuals exchange between different setups in Europe: PJAIT – Warsaw, Aalto – Helsinki, AP – Antwerp, and online exchange of artistic ideas between students from partner universities.
?D is an ongoing research project initialized by Olga Wroniewicz, in 2020/21 carried out with MaxLab Immersive Cube directed by Janna Beck (Antwerp), Antti Heitanniemi (Helsinki) and students from 3 European partner universities.
