[Nov 5-26] Computer Vision ONLINE Course

This three-week course will introduce the use of techniques in computer vision for creating interactive artworks and applications.. By using sophisticated algorithms which surreptitiously analyze video and camera streams to identify and track people, faces, moving bodies, and colors, we can add a playful–or slightly sinister–dose of interactivity to our work.

This installation displays the earth’s most destructive as well as current earthquakes, using an interactive globe, visualized data, and an audio-visual experience which responds to the destruction. It serves as a dialogue between human and nature—the constant struggle against a force beyond our control. Continue reading

[Aug 22 – Sep 12] Algorithmic Art I: 2D Interactive Visuals and Animation

WE USUALLY KEEP REGISTRATION OPEN FOR A FEW DAYS. This 3-week ONLINE COURSE is a hands-on introduction to algorithmic art. Using openframeworks, participants will learn how to create form, color, texture, and movement with mathematical functions and algorithms. But far from a math class, participants will be invited to experience functions as different brush strokes on a canvas, and algorithms as different creative processes, each evoking a different feeling. Continue reading

[Aug 18-22] Andrea Parkins: Three Rooms in the Memory Palace – Pt.1
