Event description

Description

Instructor: John Brown

Tue Thurs Jan 30, Feb 15, Feb 27, Mar 15 , 2018. 6:30PM - 8:30PM (8 hours)

Sol Lewitt’s Wall Drawings series spanned four decades of his life and lives on after his passing. His instructions for creating permanent art were essentially an analog program for creating generative art on a very large scale. We will use a Javascript library (P5.js) to recreate his works digitally using projectors, large blank walls, and his meticulous technical steps. Each class we’ll break down the instructions of one of LeWitt’s drawings into a simple program, centered on a new programming concept. And at the end, we’ll all project our pieces on the wall in an impermanent impression of his permanent pieces.

Prerequisite: No previous experience required. A love of Art.

Required Materials: laptop per student
