Days 19 and 20.9 from 10:00 to 17:00, at Conference Room, Oranssi building.


Price: 100 €


Learn to create compact interactive, generative and data-driven projection mapping installations with Raspberry Pi, openFrameworks and ofxPiMapper. During this two-day workshop you will learn how to setup the Raspberry Pi, use it to build your projection mapping project, back it up and restore it if needed. It is a good way to learn the basics of the openFrameworks creative coding toolkit. Advanced topics, such as preparing and cloning SD cards, autostart, custom generative sources, networking and projector blending will be covered.

OfxPiMapper ( is open source projection mapping software, an addon for the openFrameworks creative coding toolkit (, it runs on the Raspberry Pi ( minicomputer.


Day 19.9

10:00 - 13:00 Introduction. Burning SD cards. Mapping. Using own sources. Command line.

13:00 - 14:00 Break.

14:00 - 17:00 OpenFrameworks. Compiling examples. Creating new app.


Day 20.9

10:00 - 13:00 Building an ofxPiMapper app. Custom generative sources. Coding.

13:00 - 14:00 Break.

14:00 - 17:00 Synchronizing. Projector Blending. Git and GitHub. SD card backup.



You should be able to run openFrameworks example applications on your computer. Please install and and test it prior to the workshop. Get openFrameworks here:

For Windows users: Follow the msys2 setup guide. You should be able to compile the examples by using the make command.



Krisjanis Rijnieks has been working with digital media since Macromedia Flash 4. Between then and now he managed to try out painting, drawing, illustration, VJing, 3D modelling, Flash, creative coding, projection mapping and digital fabrication. He studied painting at the Latvian Academy of Arts and Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan; later, new media at the Media Lab Helsinki. Most of the time he has been freelancing, lately working on projects related to creative coding, projection mapping and digital fabrication. Has spent some time at the Fab Lab Berlin while developing a resource management system for fablabs and makerspaces. He is author of the book Cinder–Begin Creative Coding, although in his work he prefers to use the openFrameworks creative coding toolkit. His main project now is the development of an open source addon for openFrameworks which let’s one use the Raspberry Pi minicomputer for serious projection mapping projects.
