Cybersonica's InProcess:ing and Madlab are pleased to welcome Evan Raskob - founder and organiser of OpenLab Workshops - making art and music with open source/free software around London and the UK.
This condensed one-day version of the regular Openlab 5-evening course will be a relaxed but project-focused introduction to programing in Processing and interactive art and design in general. We will spend the bulk of the day on basic methods of working with code, general workflow and feeling your way around the Processing environment, along the way building some small projects and gaining inspiration from art, design and technologies such as Wii remotes, RFID, OSC, video and more. The material is flexible, based on the needs and wishes of the people attending.
Expect to learn and find out about:
- Introductory coding practice
- Where to find both help and inspiration
- Basic drawing to the screen
- Loops and time-based animation
- Using the mouse: built-in mouse methods and variables
- Using the keyboard: built-in keyboard methods and variables
- The possibility - time permitting - of working with images and/or video
When & Where
Madlab & Cybersonica's InProcess:ing
The Madlab is a community space for people who want to do and make interesting stuff - a place for geeks, artists, designers, illustrators, hackers, tinkerers, innovators and idle dreamers; an autonomous R&D laboratory and a release valve for Manchester's creative communities.
Cybersonica's InProcess:ing is an open forum for creative coding and practice which focuses on the Processing language, environment and community (though not exclusively) as a vehicle to support and encourage creative collaboration and meaningful exchange between a diverse group of practitioners, creatives and hobbyists. It aims to create a playful, experimental space and a supportive framework in which people can share their work, realise new technological ideas, be inspired, challenged and stretched.
