Directed Projects with Processing




... is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. 

Initially developed to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing also has evolved into a tool for generating finished professional work. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.

In this two-day workshop, we will work together to assess an artistic project from each participant, and build towards the execution of the idea using simple code.



Part 1 : Triaging the possible | Sat Sep 22nd

Prerequisite: A previous workshop from Jesse, or previous experience with Processing/Programming


The beginning day of this workshop will start in a traditional talk format, and discover the needs and desires of the participants. We will assess the tools, libraries, and techniques needed to bring the idea to fruition. Each participant will develop a short action plan, detailing the steps needed to develop the project.

Examples  of possible projects could include realtime VJ-ing, communication to and from Arduino, posting to/reading from Twitter, computer vision, motion tracking, a simple Android program, etc. Participants are encouraged to bring a 'modest' project that fits within their current scope of artistic research.


Part 2 : Solving the impossible | Sun Sep 23rd


Code code code! Testing! Networking! Projecting! Interacting! Rinse. Repeat.



Jesse Scott is a new media artist, producer, coder, designer, visualist, curator, writer, and blogger. 

He has used Processing to create live visuals, light up large led matrices, drive laser cutters, control 3D puppets, and make custom Android applications.
