Digilab Lightpool imitating the dog

Digilab Blackpool 2023

A free workshop week for anyone who wants to develop skills in projection mapping, led by imitating the dog.


Mon 20th – Fri 24th Nov 2023 (inclusive)
10am – 5pm


Lightworks, Blackpool, FY4 2RL

What is it

DigiLab is a free workshop week (5 days) for anyone who wants to develop skills in projection mapping.

Participants will learn about imitating the dog’s approach to site-specific projection-mapped installations, from storyboarding through to basic animation and mapping techniques.

Together we’ll be making a short piece of work using software such as After Effects, Photoshop, Isadora and QLab, to be projected indoors onto a model building.

The group will work with imitating the dog artists to learn about storytelling through projection mapping, developing techniques and putting them into practice to create a piece of work together.

Who is it for

Early career / developing artists and creative people who want to learn about projection mapping. You might be a visual artist who hasn’t done any projection mapping before, you might be into film or photography or another artform and keen to learn some new techniques, or you might be a lighting or theatre technician looking to expand your creative skills.

We actively encourage submissions from creatives currently under-represented in the light festival sector including people from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse backgrounds and those who identify as neurodiverse or disabled.

Priority will be given to people based on the Fylde Coast and wider Lancashire area.
