Intro to Pure Data
Learn the Basics or Pure Data (Pd), a free, Open Source environment specifically designed to help artists, musicians and other creators make things that react to what's going on around them. Learn how to make simple reactive video artworks, and how to connect your pieces to the real world by connecting Pure Data to an Arduino. In part 1 (Think in Pd) of this two part workshop we'll learn the basics of working in Pd by creating one or two simple reactive video artworks. The following week, we'll apply what we learned to working with or physical sensors and outputs. By the end of this workshop, you should have the basic tools to allow you to create your own work, as well as an understanding of how to translate a problem or question into a solution using Pd.
