The development of perspective illusion in Europe didn’t come from an individual artist. There was no single breakthrough moment. The refinement of the technique was a collective, communal activity, forged in workshops and apprenticeships.
So, it’s fitting that the development of projection media around the same notions of perspective would be communal in the same way. Now, we’re back in Europe, but as a single focal point for a movement that’s truly global, now no longer controlled by guilds or the like, but as flat and open as the Internet.
Roberto Fazio sends us a couple of videos that show how participants are getting hands-on with the medium at the Telenoika workshops. At top, ideas about what this mapping business means from a number of artists:
