A two-day online workshop (ZOOM meeting) led by Olivia Jack in English
FRIDAY 4th Dec 16.00-18.00 CET
SATURDAY 5th Dec 14.00-16.00 CET
Introduction to live coding using the web-based video synthesizer Hydra (http://hydra.ojack.xyz/). Inspired by analog modular synthesis, Hydra allows multiple visual sources (oscillators, cameras, application windows, remote video streams) to be transformed, modulated, and composited via combining sequences of functions. The workshop will be an introduction to creative coding and creating live visuals using this flexible system. No prior experience necessary! A laptop or computer and headphones is required to participate.
Olivia Jack is a programmer and artist who works frequently with open-source software, cartography, live coding, and experimental interfaces. She is the developer of various browser-based creative tools including Hydra (live-coded video synthesizer), PIXELSYNTH, Pixeljam (collaborative code editor) and LiveLab (peer-to-peer media router). Her live visual sets explore algorithmic representations of unpredictable and chaotic systems, and writing software as a messy and ephemeral process.
Organized by A4 as part of the international collaborative project Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, Slovak Arts Council and Bratislava – capital of SR.
