Data Jam workshop: synaesthesia happy hour

PREREQUISITES: basic understanding of computers and digital art
TEACHERS: Graham Harwood, Claude Heiland-Allen, Aymeric Mansoux


"synaesthesia happy hour" is a 2 days workshop that will introduce you
to data mapping and basic synaesthetic tricks to get you started making 
real-time audiovisual experiments based on incoming data taken from 
various sources. In this crash course we will focus on how a single 
source of information (for example data from a sensor, or a log file) 
can be used to both generate sounds and visual. After the workshop you 
will never see numbers the same! (your mileage may vary)

The workshop is targeted to beginners only, for artists and students
who are curious about data mapping and want to get introduced to Pure
Data (http://puredata.info/). We will run the software from the
pure:dyne GNU/Linux distribution (http://puredyne.goto10.org).

More information:


This workshop is part of the pure:dyne for everyone project, a national
project designed to make pure:dyne more accessible through special
events with partnering media arts centres across the country. pure:dyne
for everyone is possible with the support of the Creative Partnerships
programme of Arts Council England.
