EURANIM Videomapping

Twelve students from six European countries gather in Viborg to create a gigantic videomapping work on the walls of the old military building “Arsenalet”.

Time: Saturday, September 30
Place: Arsenalet, Kasernevej 8-10, 8800 Viborg, toward Paradepladsen

Repeating last years success, and as a part of the Euranim project, a group of 12 European students, including two students from The Animation Workshop/VIA University College, will literally bring the old military building “Arsenalet” to life with experimental animation.

During a week-long workshop the students will be exploring a novel, innovative use of animation. Video mapping is an emerging technique and consists in using objects to turn them into a display surface for video projection. The objects used can be large like landscapes or façades or smaller, like everyday objects.

Two students from each of the partnering schools will work together in groups during the workshop, led by Támas Zádor (Recontres Audiovisuelles).


About the Euranim partnership

The Euranim partnership comprises European universities of Art and Design, from five different countries: Plymouth College of Art (Plymouth, United Kingdom), Turku University of Applied Sciences (Turku, Finland), The Animation Workshop – VIA University College (Viborg, Denmark), Howest (Kortrijk, Belgium) and MOME (Budapest, Hungary). The project is led by the cultural organisation Rencontres Audiovisuelles (Lille, France) and is co-financed by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. It brings together more than 60 partners from the creative industries, across these six countries.

For a period of three years ending in 2018, Euranim will enhance the career prospects and facilitate the mobility and cross-cultural exchange of more than 400 young digital artists and staff working on the project via the organisation of five international cultural events, which will attract more than 45.000 people.
Showcasing events will disseminate the results of the project activities and enable a sustainable network to be built. These showcases will demonstrate the opportunities offered by animation and video mapping in terms of artistic creativity, commercial use and wider societal benefit. All these events will also allow the general public to get familiar with this emerging creative medium and generate a demand for such creations.
