Creating Images from Code Using Processing

This workshop focuses on simple techniques for making art based on code. These techniques can be applied to algorithmic art, data visualization, or graphic design. This is an ideal workshop for visual artists with little or no experience in coding, or beginner-level coders interested in finding a visual outlet for their blossoming skills.

Examples

 The artworks on this page show examples of very different styles of artwork, all created from code.

Introduction to Video Glitch Processes

Glitch art is the aestheticization/celebration of errors in digital or analogue technology, produced either by corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices. 

Datamoshing, also know as Compression Artifacting, is a video editing technique that falls under the category of Glitch Art. The process involves the creation of intentional glitches that blur the borders between video frames, causing images to bleed into each other rather than having one cut cleanly to another.

Specifically, in this workshop we'll hear:

Turn Anything Into An Interactive Controller: MaKey MaKey Workshop with Pearl Chen

Have you ever wanted to take one of your projects beyond a mouse and keyboard? With the MaKey MaKey, it’s easy to augment any existing desktop software or web app with real world objects to create new user experiences.

Join in on this 3-hour, hands-on workshop to explore what you can do with physical computing. Use a real banana to enhance a banana throwing game. Use real water to enhance a swimming tutorial app. Use tilt sensors to add physical exercising to any software program. Wherever your imagination takes you.

Creating Interactive Art Installations, Part 3: Interactive Video

IN THIS SESSION:

In the final workshop of this series, we will learn how to detect user presence and interaction. We'll use a webcam as an input to trigger events, and explore a number of different techniques that allow your project to "see" people around them and respond accordingly.

Creating Interactive Art Installations, Part 1: Introduction to Max 6

In this session:

In the first workshop of the series, we'll learn the basics of manipulating both pre-recorded and live video feeds in real-time. To get there, we'll use the Max 6 programming environment. 

Max 6 is a perfect tool for artists learning to create interactive installations, particularly those which use camera or audio input. It's a graphical approach to programming, in which artists create "patches" by visually connecting objects which represent inputs, outputs and functions, rather than typing out lines of code.
