Event description

Description

Instructor: Mike Heavers


The software and hardware we use is often designed with a rigid structure, and a singular, isolated focus. However, if we can understand the underlying ways through which applications and devices communicate, we can expose a wealth of opportunity for artistic expression and unexpected creativity.

In this class we will explore some of the fundamental methods by which machines communicate, and how these allow us to extend the capabilities of hardware and software beyond the uses their creators intended.

In this second session, we'll look at how to communicate between devices - doing things like making phones talk to the web, making the web talk to household devices, and making devices that control software applications.

Prerequisite:
It is not required that you attend the first session, but it is encouraged! Some experience with any of the software mentioned (Ableton Live, Unity, Max/MSP), a basic understanding of programming, or an idea for a project you want to create, will be helpful.

Required Materials: laptop with web access

We have a limited number of scholarships for our workshops. If you need an application, please send an email to mtc@pnca.edu with your complete name and contact information.
