Processing Ghent 007 – The Recode edition

This edition of Processing Ghent will be about the history of creating art with code. Our mothership, the Processing Cities project (http://www.processingcities.org/) asked us to organize a session about the ReCode Project http://recodeproject.com/ started by Matthew Eppler. The ReCode Project is a community-driven effort to preserve computer art by translating it into a modern programming language (Processing). Every translated work will be available to the public to learn from, share, and build on.

The next edition will be held on Thursday 28.03.2013. The event will be FREE, just like the last time. If you want to participate in the workshop, you should bring your own laptop. It would be good if you can install Processing before coming down to the venue.

There are 40 places available for the talks and workshop. Book your free ticket by clicking the button below.

Processing Ghent

Talk

We have invited a special guest speaker for this edition. Peter Beyls is an artist working with computer media since the seventies. He explores computer programming as a medium for artistic expression and develops generative systems in music, the visual arts and hybrid formats. You can find out more about Peter and his work on his website (www.beyls.org).

Coding Session

We won’t host a normal workshop this time. The goal of this edition of Processing Ghent is to recreate art based on the work of the pioneers of algorithmic art you’ll find on the website of the ReCode Project (http://recodeproject.com/).

It would be great if you picked one of the works before you join us for this edition, so you can get started coding and collaborating with other people immediately. We would like to collect the art made at the end of the meeting, and donate it back to the community.

Talk

Robin Steyaert will present his master thesis project: Conflict and Failing Methods of Architecture.

 

Workshop

Frederik Vanhoutte will do a workshop about Object Oriented Programming. You’ll learn the basics of OOP in Processing. Frederik will use Bubble Chamber by Jared Tarbell, as a case study. The Bubble Chamber was created in 2003 with Processing 067, one of the early alpha versions of Processing. People starting out with Processing at that time learned a lot from Jared’s code. Make sure you check out his other work like Substrate and Intersection Aggregate on the Complexification website..

February 2012 Meeting Postponed

We have to postpone the February 2012 meeting since the three of us were selected to participate in the Generator.X 3.0 masterclass with Marius Watz at iMAL. We are playing with 3D printers and laser cutters this week in Brussels, so we don’t have the time to organize everything. If you want to see the results of our hard work, you can join us for the opening of the exhibition on Friday the 24th at iMAL. Or you can visit the exhibition during the weekend. You can find all the information you need on the website of iMAL.

See you this Friday!

Bert, Corneel and Jan

NY Drink

Happy New Year everyone. In January, there will be no regular Processing Ghent meeting, as DOK is closed. The next meeting will be held in February. So we decided to go for a drink in January. The normal meetings are usually packed with talks and workshops, so this one will be ideal to get to know each other a little better.

We’ll meet on Thursday, January 19th at 20.00h. Location is Vooruit, Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat 23, 9000 Gent. Let us know if you’ll be there by clicking the button below.

Meeting 003

For our third meeting we’ll have two talks and a workshop, just like the previous events. We also have a new location for the event, because it would be too cold to do the meeting in the hangar at DOK. The event will be FREE, just like the last time. If you want to participate in the workshop, you should bring your own laptop. It would be good if you can install Processing before coming down to the venue.

There are 40 places available for the talks and workshop. Book your free ticket by clicking the button below.
