Scavenge, Fold, Manipulate: Sampling the Ghost in the Machine

Tasman Richardson presents a beginner’s guide to forming abstract expressions with various analog glitches in this two day workshop. Using examples from his personal practice, Tasman will explain his concept of The New Flesh, and teach participants his methods for seeking, capturing and sorting glitches from CRT rescanning, Atari voltage manipulation, and cross wiring video to audio channels for applications in installation art, live visualizations, audio/video compositions, and more.

Intro to 3D Printing!

In this workshop, participants will learn the workflow of 3D printing an object from digital files. Steps include manipulating the model, exporting files, and printing the object on IA's Ultimaker 2 printers. You will learn to prepare files for 3D printing using Autodesk123Design. 

The workshop will focus on printing two kinds of objects. These include:

- an object from a 3D scan, and, 

- an object designed entirely in 3D modelling software (Autodesk 123Design or Rhino).

Large-Scale Light Art

Back by popular demand! Learn how to control robotic lights, theatrical dimmer units and addressable RGB LEDs!  Participants will explore different ways of controlling sample lighting units (provided) using Arduino, Processing, and openFrameworks, and will consider ways that a small breadboard circuit can be scaled up to a large artwork. We will have samples of many different types of lighting fixtures to control, and discuss ways that you can create your own lighting fixtures.
