Event description


We're interested in helping artists learn to use technology to expand their definition of art and in helping tech peeps learn to be more artistic and creative! Wherever you are on that spectrum, we invite you to join us for our Fall intensive workshops!

Introducing "Randomness Is All Around," part of a series of mini- School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe courses we've put together to help get you started!

The main goal for this online course is to explore the brilliance of randomness as a tool for programming sound art, computer graphics, and video manipulation through hands-on exercises.

No experience necessary, come as you are.

Now let's begin!


From weather, to a roll of the dice, to the noise that surrounds us, randomness, or the lack of patterns and state of unpredictability, is all around.

Using computers to create mathematical models of randomness allows you to quickly begin to incorporate generative and unpredictable outcomes into your art practice. It's easier than you might think. We'll show you how!

Over four-weeks, you'll learn math for randomness, and dig in to probabilities, and how to use code for audio synthesis and manipulation, computer graphics, video manipulation, and web applications.

Participants from diverse backgrounds, with varied skillsets and interests are all welcome to join us!

Don't know a lot about these topics? No worries! If you can use a computer, you'll be able to follow along and learn something in every class!

If you're an expert in any of these topics, join us to learn how to incorporate other disciplines into your practice.

Note: All classes are live but if you need to miss one, not to worry, they will all be recorded and available for playback.
