This workshop will explore coding techniques using Processing, a popular programming language and environment used by thousands of artists, designers, scientists and others worldwide. Participants will learn to create their own custom software “drawing machines” to enable creative interactivity. Using design thinking applied to software... Read More »
Artifacts from History: Gender, Infrastructure, and the Assumptions
our Technologies (Make Us) Make
Ever wonder why decades ago there used to be a higher proportion of women in computing than there is now? Ever wonder why change over time doesn’t always go in the direction we might expect? Using a historian’s toolkit,... Read More »
This workshop will help attendees develop their own sonic visualisations, exploring a variety of methods for converting recorded audio into imagery. We will look at time-domain approaches, mapping raw audio data to graphics, and we will utilize the FFT for frequency domain experimentation. Participants are expected to have a working copy of Xcode,... Read More »
