Description

Raspberry Pi: Interactive Video and Sound with Processing and Pure Data

January 13 - February 17, 2019

Sundays, 2 pm - 5 pm
7 class sessions + open house exhibit March 2, 2019

$300 class fee + $65 material fee

ABOUT THIS CLASS

Processing is an application/platform for creating graphics and animation for interactive video projects. With a large community of users, it can now run on the Raspberry Pi! Pure Data (PD) is an open source visual programming language for sound and multimedia (very similar to Max). It also works on a Pi which is very exciting! Why? Because you no longer need to run your projections, sound, and interactive artworks off of a laptop or a desktop which is very expensive and prone to crashing.

In this course, we will all be running our Pis off of a preloaded Raspian OS disk image optimized for creating standalone projects with Processing and PD. You will be up and running within one hour or less. Over the course of seven classes, we will cover how to pass values between software, generate graphics and animation with code, integrate sensors to modulate sounds and visuals and trigger events, learn video projection techniques, generate and manipulate sounds, and control output devices like servos and lights. Through all of these class experiments, you will discover possibilities for a final project and many future projects to come.
