Generative Art (Virtual)

Generative Art

Saba Ghole

Session 3: August 9-20, 2021

When you look around you, do you see art and graphics everywhere? Do fire hydrants turn into delightful characters? Do brick walls transform into color-filled Tetris games? While walking down sidewalks, do you imagine surprising sensory experiences, like butterfly misters spritzing water onto passersby on a hot summer day? Using the city as our canvas, we’ll explore creating interactive generative art inspired by the streets around us. Using state-of-the-art software and hardware, we’ll conjure up art that will entice passersby to interact with it, making shadows come alive and stories jump into motion. Let’s blur the line between imagination and reality by creating interactive generative art!

In this studio, we will explore the evolving world of generative art. You’ll learn how to develop a concept, create graphics, and animate them using Processing, a programming language created for electronic and media arts. You’ll also learn to use motion capture hardware and openFrameworks, an open source toolkit for creative coding, to bring your art to life in the city! If you love programming and art, this studio is for you!
