Mc 3d contentMapping techniques allow artists to create spherical visuals that change environment perspective using 3D geometries. This masterclass will teach participants how to build realtime content for spherical environment using the software TouchDesigner. Participants will explore generative 3D animation to create immersive environments and perspective illusions. By using cube-map render and shader distortion, participants will prepare their content for the video output and be able to preview it using an Oculus Rift or another VR device.




A digital artist based in Montreal, Mathieu Le Sourd, aka Maotik, focuses his work on the creation of immersive multimedia environments and generative visuals. His work has recently been presented in various festivals around the world, such as Live Cinema in Rio, Plums Festival in Moscow, Visiones in Lima, Mutek Festival (Montreal, Mexico city, Barcelona and Bogota) and the British Film Institute in London.

As lead of Moment Factory's interactive team in 2011, Maotik produced large-scale projects such as the multimedia experience in the new terminal at the Los Angeles airport as well as the visuals for Nine Inch Nails world tour. In 2013, he produced the critically-acclaimed immersive multimedia performance DROMOS, which was presented at the SATosphere in Montreal as part of the Mutek festival.

Always in search of new challenges, Maotik designs his own visual tools by generating animations from algorithms and creating 3D worlds to transform perceptions of space. He collaborates with musicians, sound artists and scientists in order to continue his research into the relationship between art, science and technology.
