Digital Art Studio

Creative coding and computational art with Ashley James Brown

An introduction to digital art through coding, come along and create your own interactive drawing tools using shapes, images and live video input. We will explore the creative artistic possibilities with a minimal set of coded instructions using the open source Processing language and development environment (processing.org) Explore and understand some of the creative process that is present in the gallery works currently and be inspired by the possibilities of computational and glitch art practices. Bring a memory stick to take your creations and code home for further exploration. No experience necessary.
