Obtuse Nature - Repurposing Natural Systems for Computational Art
Obtuse Nature explores naturally occurring systems that generate complex patterns from simple sets of rules. The workshop will provide the opportunity for participants to work with a number of naturally inspired algorithms, they will then be guided through how to develop and artistically re-purpose these simple systems creating intricate and individually unique generative works of art.
The workshop will expose the participants to a number of concepts and examples of generative art produced with naturally inspired systems. The workshop will focus more on how to develop these systems into interesting generative artworks rather than coding from the ground up. This workshop is geared towards beginner to intermediate coders.

About the Instructor: Dan Tapper is an artist who explores the sonic and visual properties of the unheard and invisible. From revealing electromagnetic sounds produced by the earth’s ionosphere, to exploring hidden micro worlds and creating imaginary nebulas made from code. His explorations use scientific methods alongside thought experiments resulting in rich sonic and visual worlds.
