Projection mapping allows for the invigoration of forgotten spaces, the enlivening of events and the oppotunity to present content and creativity in new and exciting ways. While huge festivals around the world have showcased projection mapping, the opportunities are now available for communities to produce cost-effective and engaging events on grand scales. In Palmerston North we have exploited the system to provide an enhanced experience for visitors to our spaces, and to run specific events, such as the “Modular Projection Blaze” and “Firing Line”. Collaboration has been a key tool in realising these events, with buy in from various community stakeholders. The talk will include numerous visual and audio examples of some of our events. The greatest benefit for the library has been the opportunity to partner with creatives, enabling them to deliver wonderful benefits for the city. Projection mapping has so many moving parts it requires the library/museum/council to slip into a supporting and enabling role. The result is greater than the sum of its parts. Another part of this story is that it’s value led: Must be epically cool, conceived in the Manawatū and greater than the sum of its parts.
