    a verb for "projection mapping"

    Odawara castle is now (showing / doing / [others]) projection mapping.
    Which verb should I use before "projection mapping"?

    Without any context, I would choose "doing". Do you have any context?

    Re: a verb for "projection mapping"

    What is projection mapping?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The context is that I found the info about the projection mapping on the Net and I'm asking a friend of mine if she wants to go see it with me.

    Projection mapping is also called video mapping. It's a new term and I couldn't find it in dictionaries.

    Re: a verb for "projection mapping"

    Thank you again.

    Just for future reference, what if it's a formal situation? Would it still be OK to use "do"?
