Resource portal on video mapping

Video mapping is a recent technique that is part of the visual culture of our time, but there remains a lack of access to information about this form of audiovisual creation. The Video Mapping Resources website, developed by Rencontres Audiovisuelles, aims to remedy the lack of information on video mapping.

For several years, the Rencontres Audiovisuelles association has been running a project supporting the mapping industry: the Video Mapping European Center. This tool combines research, training, support for creation (notably via residencies), production and distribution (notably with the Video Mapping Festival).

This resource portal is an extension of this work and aims to contribute to the recognition of the stakeholders of the discipline (artists, producers, festivals, researchers, etc.) and to help the general public, researchers, students, local authorities, etc. to discover or to understand video mapping better.

Video Mapping Resources includes :

  • research texts, notably on the history of French mapping
  • a documentary web series: Mapping Stories (portraits of artists, thematic subjects, reports on events, etc.)
  • a database filled in by the professionals of the sector with international projects, and a resource directory
  • information on how to set up video mapping projects
