Motion Interactions and Projection Mapping with Processing

July 20 - 28, 2019

Saturdays and Sundays, 10am - 1 pm
4 class sessions total

$190 course fee


ABOUT THIS CLASS

This workshop will introduce students into a brief overview of Processing/p5.js. It will also introduce technologies that capture motion, movement, action, and gesture. By the end of the workshop, students will have access to Processing/p5.js examples that showcase and integrate kinetic technologies. They will also
have the basic skills, knowledge, and access to an array of technologies in order to begin developing their own independent projects.

This course will focus on different types of movement and the specific technologies that recognize, extract, and quantify that type of movement. Each of these classes will be supplemented with examples in Processing/p5.js. The last day of the workshop will focus on preparing the students for bringing their own ideas to life!

Class 1: Face Detection (Saturday, July 20th)

  • technology: web cameras
  • code: Processing, p5.js, FaceOSC

Class 2: Hand Gesture Recognition (Sunday, July 21th)

  • technology: Leap Motion
  • code: processing, p5.js, leap-motion-processing library

Class 3: Depth and Movement with Kinect (Saturday, July 27th)

  • technology: Xbox Kinect
  • code: processing, p5.js

Class 4: Examples and Individual Project Development (Sunday, July 28th)

  • This class will focus on preparing each of the students for preparing their own project
  • We will continue learning processing, but will allocate time for project specific questions, help, and debugging.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This is an introductory workshop designed for individuals interested in learning to program in the Processing environment and who are interested in learning the basics of motion capturing using sensors.

Students will learn about:
  • Programming basics in p5.js
  • Face detection with webcams
  • Hand gesture recognition with Leap Motion
  • Body and depth sensing with Xbox Kinect
REQUIREMENTS
  • No previous programming experience required
CLASS MATERIALS

Students should bring:

  • A laptop (PC or Mac)
