D.I.Y. Pfandtasche Workshop

In the do-it-yourself Pfandtasche workshop you can design your own bag, and will get introduced to the PVC banner material.

We work only with recycled materials, using as little energy as possible. You will learn how to easily turn old commercial banners, PET bottle tops and bicycle tubes into a practical bag. By using PET-bottle tops as connectors and you need neither thread nor electricity.

 

More info at the Pfandtasche blog!

 

Join us on the 29th november at 19:00, at Open Design City

 

Price

incl. material costs for 1 bag  – 25 Euro

Processing for Android

 

 

 

Processing

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

 

Android

... is an open source operating system for devices that are packed with sensors, such as touchscreens, cameras, microphones, gps, accelerometers… 

... we just want to put those two things... together :-)

 

Part 1 : Hello World | Sat Sep 29th

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

Note: an actual Android device is encouraged, but not necessary, as it is possible to program for the Emulator

 

We will start by making several 'Hello World' programs for the emulator and actual devices, showcasing how basic Processing code works when moved onto a different screen/processor, and how sensors are accessed and utilized.

 

Part 2 : Touch Me, Touch You | Sun Sep 30th

 

On this day, every participant will design and develop a small Android App. While participants are encouraged to come up with their own ideas as to what they want to develop over the course of this workshop (the more useful for your daily art practice the better), we will focus our interaction on creative applications using the touch screen and several sensors...

Directed Projects with Processing

 

 

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.

Intro to Processing

 

 

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 the recent words of Ben Fry, one of the co-creators of the project:

 

"Processing seeks to ruin the careers of talented designers by tempting them away from their usual tools and into the world of programming and computation. Similarly, the project is designed to turn engineers and computer scientists to less gainful employment as artists and designers."

Part 1 : Everything you always wanted to know about Processing but were afraid to ask | Sat Sep 15th

Prerequisite: No previous programming experience required, just an open mind and an idea of how you would like to use Processing in your work.

 

The beginning half of this workshop will start in a traditional talk format, and explain the basics of type-based programming, and things like variables, datatypes, methods, and functions (don't be scared, it's easy!!).

The remaining half will be conducted in a open format, with questions, discussion, and hands-on coding in discovering methods and techniques.

 

Part 2 : Applied Learning and Problem Solving with Processing | Sun Sep 16th

Prerequisite: Part 1 of this workshop, a previous workshop from me, or previous experience with Processing

 

During the first half of this workshop, participants will use hands-on techniques in order to complete exercises designed to give them experience in problem solving using Processing.

For the second half of the workshop, Jesse will help participants design a custom program featuring one or more modes of interaction.

Bagpad

 

Das Projekt Bagpad von Nina Thorwart + Raban Ruddigkeit verbindet Design, Recycling und soziales Engagement. Wir sammeln gebrauchte Beutel und machen aus ihnen in Zusammenarbeit mit der Behindertenwerkstatt des Kaspar Hauser Therapeutikum auf einfachste Art – Kissen. So bekommen Beutel ein neues Leben und Kissen ein schöneres Design. Jeder kann das Projekt zweifach unterstützen; indem er Beutel spendet oder Kissen kauft. Eine Onlineplattform zeigt ab 1. Oktober alle vorliegenden Beutel und die Namen der Spender. Der Preis für ein Bagpad ist 19,80 Euro.

Am 1. Oktober startet Bagpad im Rahmen des People in Beta Festivals in Berlin. Dort kann man zum Aktionspreis von 9.80 Euro seinen Beutel vor Ort zu einem Kissen umnähen lassen oder als Spende abgeben. Das Upcycling kostet an diesem Tag einmalige 9,80 Euro. Wir freuen uns auf euren Besuch!

Party Like It’s €1.999 | Cheap Wine Tasting

 

Friday Sept 30





19:00 – 21:00





Open Design City

We’d like everyone to have a taste of the best of the worst. Party Like It’s €1.999 is an attempt to find some of the best, really really affordable, wines in all of Germany.  With frequent trips to Kaufland, et al, we’ve managed to acquire a fair sample, and so in defiance of all known wine etiquette, we’ve decided to host a series of rather uncouth and uncultured wine tastings.

Imaginative assessments, ad hoc scoring systems, quaffing and general enjoyment are all highly encouraged. €2 donation for the wine.

FlashMob: Nacht aus der VogelHaus

 

Short Version: Flash Mob - Making Birdhouses from Political Campaign Posters starting at 8.30, 20th September. 20.30 @Open Design City (or organise your own details below).

Bring Craft Knives, Scissors and something to get high (i mean chairs and ladders).

Long Version:
...
For the last months the faces of politicians have haunted the streets, they don't tell us what they stand for or what they represent. They just want our brains to absorb their names.

At the same time, birds, beautiful birds, who bring us song and color to the city, struggle to find a home safe from cats and predators.

But all is not lost. One shared simple action can allow us to reclaim our minds from the blight of political campaigns, and provide our feathered co-inhabitants with a new space to live and thrive.

On the 20th September, at 9pm we will turn the campaign posters into Birdhouses. We hope you can join us or create your own action near you.

Meet us at Open Design City, 19 - 20 Prinzessinenstrasse at 8.30 or set up your own by copying this text and setting your own time, then email me and give details of your meeting point so we can create a map. Bring scissors, craft knives, some pencils and chairs (or ladders if you want to be fancy) if you have them.

Here's the video how to, we'll get a better one closer to the date.

Happy hacking.
