Tuesday, May 25th (6-9PM), and
Saturday, May 29th (12-6PM).
James Acres is currently the Algonquin College coordinator for the Bachelor of Information Technology IMD program that is partnered between Algonquin College and Carleton University. Prior to teaching, James was a founding partner of local advertising agency Fuel Industries. James has switched his focus from online advertising to interactive and generative art and spends much of his time hacking interactive projects together using open source tools such as Arduino, openFrameworks, and Processing.
Processing (http://www.processing.org) is an open source programming environment design for visual artists and designers. The project has a large community and has become one of the standard tools of choice for interactive development. This workshop serves as an introduction to using Processing as a tool to create interactive art. We will be looking at interacting with No programming experience is necessary for the workshop, though it is definitely helpful. Anyone interested in finding out more about the open source interactive art movement and looking for an introduction to the Processing platform is highly encouraged to attend.
The workshop will take place over 2 consecutive Tuesdays, with each session being 3 hours (6pm-9pm) and a final breakout session on a Saturday from 12pm-6pm where we will create small interactive projects in groups.
Note: The first Tuesday workshop will serve as an introduction to programming concepts and the Processing language/environment. This is a beginner session and is optional to those who are familiar with programming concepts such as functions, variables, and common programming methods.
Having a laptop is best for this workshop, but if you do not have one contact us so we can help make arrangements for you. Please download the latest version of the Processing IDE at http://processing.org/download/
