Projection mapping guru Ashton for InstallMarket keynote25 March 2014
Installation is pleased to announce that the keynote address at InstallMarket on 4 September will be given by projection artist Ross Ashton.
Together with his company The Projection Studio, Ross Ashton has been responsible for many iconic 3D projection mapping projects in the UK and elsewhere. For the Face Britain project, celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, he projected a video montage of 32 portraits of Her Majesty, created from around 200,000 self-portraits of children. He also masterminded a London 2012 Olympics projection onto the Houses of Parliament.
Projector mapping brings together the cutting edge of many AV industry technologies. At InstallMarket, Ashton will make a 30-minute presentation of some of his work, and will discuss the technology and the business issues that support these eye-catching projects.
“I’m very happy that we have secured the services of Ross Ashton for InstallMarket,” said Paddy Baker, editor of Installation. “He is arguably the biggest name in projection mapping, and will prove a big draw for the event. I can’t wait to see and hear his keynote address!”
InstallMarket is the only independent, dedicated UK event for AV systems integrators, installers and consultants. In-house AV staff, facilities managers, AV end-user company staff and architects will also find it a rewarding visit. The venue is the Business Design Centre in Islington, north London.
