VPT 7 | Conversations with spaces VPT 8 by HC Gilje, released may 2018. Video Projection Tool (VPT) is a free multipurpose realtime projection software tool for Mac and Windows. VPT 7 was downloaded over 100000 times, so in spite of a lot of other options available VPT still is popular. Among other things it can be used for projecting mapping on complex forms, adapt a projection to a particular space/surface, combine recorded and live footage, for multiscreen HD playback, for interactive installations using arduino sensors or camera tracking ++. VPT is very flexible in terms of control, with presets and a built in cue list, as well as control over almost every single parameter using OSC, midi, serial communication, built in LFOs and ArtNet. It also supports syphon (mac) and spout (windows) for sharing video streams between applications. VPT 8 is recommended for mac OS 10.12 or later and Windows 7 and 10 (although VPT 7 works great on Windows 7). and yes, it is still FREE! VPT 8 has a lot of under-the-hood changes. extras:

Glo-Mo: Designing a High Tech Dance β€œTo me, the lights were artwork of themselves. There were the dancers dancing under art, with art on their bodies, so it just brought the whole picture together,” said Danielle Sampson, a dance teacher at Grand Center Arts Academy. I attend Grand Center Arts Academy, a school for the fine arts that goes from 6th-12th grade. Our dance department was recruited by The Pulitzer, a modern art gallery in St. Louis, to dance around a new art installation, Lots. Lots is a big metal cage-like structure with white sheets that flowed in the wind. β€œI think the dance was made for the lights, because if you were watching it without the lights then it looks kind of boring, but the lights totally made it a cool hypnotic effect,” says Brianna Ford, a tenth grader who was in the dance. To start with, I had a meeting with the dance teachers who choreographed the dance to the song I Remember, by deadmau5. After the Pulitzer performance, the group performed two more times.
