from august 25th to 28th, i’ll be at la cúpula media lab, in córdoba, argentina, for one more workshop. this time we will be using puredata as a tool for generating realtime images, a technique that can be applied to many different transmedia experiments in drama, cinema, performance, dance, vjing and so on. the program of the workshop is described below:
> discussion of the platform: what is puredata and what can it do?
> pd and libraries installation (a walkthrough in mac os and linux);
> intro to the patch metaphor / non-linear programming;
> intro to GEM/openGL;
> exercise 1: loading and displaying a video in GEM;
> exercise 2: puredata video mixer;
> exercise 3: realtime image filters;
days 3 and 4
> exercise 4: openCV – computer vision and puredata – face and other visual pattern identification;
> exercise 5: how to use arduino and puredata to modify images;
15 people limitation. you can apply yourself at the la cúpula’s website.
to leave you with an example of possibilities we will be discussing during the workshop, below there’s a video of a play i worked on with ricardo palmieri, gabriel camelo and the group les commediens tropicales. the multimedia scenery was made by using projection mapping techniques, with a combination of puredata and vpt (programmed by palm). hope to see you in córdoba!
