Creative Coding for Artists

Dates: TBC

An opportunity for any skill level, from beginners to those with previous (creative) coding experience. On a practical level, artist & technologist Neil C Smith will lead you through various free software tools for creative coding and working with media. Focusing on the popular Processing environment inside PraxisLIVE, we will explore graphics, video, audio, data visualization, and working with sensors.

Alongside the tools you will also be encouraged to look at and think about what you might create, looking at how other artists are working with code. We will consider work using generative graphics, interactive installations, audio-visual performances, and software art; as well as how artists are engaging with the wider political and social impacts of free (as-in-speech) software.

‘PraxisLIVE’ is a hybrid-visual live-coding system that will allow us to cover both visual node based and text based approaches to creative coding. Neil is the lead developer of PraxisLIVE, and regularly gives talks and workshops on creative approaches in coding to both artists and programmers.

Participants will need to bring their own laptop and charger. All software used will be free and cross-platform (Windows, macOS or Linux).
