Event Details

Come on out and join Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH & Wacom Technology Corporation as they present;

Light Troupe, a local Portland movement, exploring the boundaries of entertainment and audio visual  simultaneous interactivity while drawing in the 4th dimension. 


Intrigued? 

 

For the programmers in the audience,  Luz Studio, Open GL and Ruby will be discussed.

For the visual and audio artists in the audience, there will be an opportunity to play while interacting with the code the developers write on the spot!   Wacom Tablets, Wilmotes and MIDI devices will be used as a means of interface.

That means you can expect to see 2D drawing in 3D space animated over time   A demonstration with at least a  4-person, simultaneous drawing to be followed by live audience participation!

This is super fun stuff; computer graphics, music, animation, spontaneous creativity, happy excited people - come see for yourself and participate!

About Light Troupe
Light Troupe is a local collective of artistic and technical talent projecting its visions through interactive brilliance. The Troupe uses open source software and common physical devices to engage and stimulate audiences and participants in new ways. When software developer, Ian McIntosh, met up with artist Josh Fitzsimmons and designer Pat Coan, Ian was able to fully communicate his visions of interactive audio-visual arts. The group began to lay a foundation for concepts including an audio-visual vocabulary and universal composition to create ground rules for 4-dimensional interactive art experiences. Together they explore the possibilities of collaborative emergence. Through the contributions of the artist and the designer, Ian was able to push the sophistication of his tool-set to further accommodate a wider range of users and artistic scenarios. After realizing the undeniable beauty of the their creations,  Light Troupe began to bring their art to public venues for spectators and participants.  Light Troupe has performed and collaborated with several local artists in many venues in the Portland area and continues to find an inspiring and altogether new experience through the combination of visual, audio, interactive and social sensations.
