realtime image processing with puredata

procesamiento de imágenes en tiempo real con puredata

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:

day 1

> 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;

day 2

> 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!
