SFPC Drawing Workshops
Workshop series led by Zachary Lieberman, co-founder of SFPC and the creative coding tool kit openFrameworks. The aim is to explore approaches to drawing and animation using computational media. Adult and child participants will experience how pen and paper, body gestures, electronic circuits, camera, sound and code can be used to make drawings and animation.
*From Point A to Point B*, an introductory workshop to making computational animation with openFrameworks, targets adult participants experienced in basic coding. Animation, from Latin *animare* which means “instill with life,” is the process of creating movement from still, sequential images. In order to achieve this, the workshop focuses on the simple question: how do you get from point A to point B? Terms such as percentage, function, sine and cosine, noise are used to control not only linear and curve movements but also properties like color and size; more complex movement is controlled by applying velocity and power on diverse ranges.
Children-oriented workshop *Drawing++*, co-led by Taeyoon Choi, proposes various approaches to drawing for participants to experience. Hand-drawn pictures connected to Poetics of Circuitry kits produce sound and long-exposure camera apps allow for light-drawing using LEDs. One can understand how code can be applied to drawing by drawing lines on paper following specific rules. IPad apps developed by Lieberman and/or his friends demonstrate where movement, sound and video meet with drawing. The workshop shows that anything can be used to draw, and also that drawing has the possibility to bring about any kind of other results.
시적연산학교 (SFPC) School for Poetic Computation ∙
School for Poetic Computation is an alternative education project and artist collective that was launched in Brooklyn, New York in 2013. A four-member faculty and 15 students per semester work closely to explore the intersections of code, design, hardware, and theory. A hybrid of residency and research group, the 10-week program was created to overcome the limitations of conventional education programs on media technology. Its members are co-founders Zach Lieberman, Taeyoon Choi, Amit Pitaru, Jen Lowe, and the students who are newly selected every semester.
