Event Details

Beginning VVVV
November 9 - 10, 2013
10am - 5:30pm 

From projection-mapping to interactive environments, VVVV is the code-free programming toolkit that opens up a world of creativity with video.

Whether your canvas is a whole building, your bedroom wall or something... stranger, VVVV will extend your creativity into the third and fourth dimensions. You'll learn to create with motion, audio, shaders, and interaction, and be confident working with projectors and the Kinect. After completing the course, you'll be able to take your ideas off the screen and out into the real world.

Who is the course for?

  • Artists
  • Designers
  • Creative technologists
  • Interactive architects
  • Live visualists


VVVV is a powerful toolkit of media technologies, hosting a glut of built in functionality, tools and examples. Using a real-time interface you can create generative, aesthetic and functional systems without using code, but also without constraints. It can interface with almost anything you want, it can generate almost anything you want. There aren’t any other media toolkits that can perform so much ‘out of the box’, having you projecting Kinect tracked video onto buildings or controlling robot arms from Twitter in days rather than weeks. The true power of the tool lies within the elegance within which it makes its features available.

Learning Outcomes

  • A hands on ‘by the seat of your pants’ tour of VVVV's features and how to get started with each bit. Create a mental map of the VVVV landscape through experience, so every bit of new learning can be hooked onto an explained element of the system
  • Be able to work with VVVV and a projector
  • Be able to map content from inside your computer onto real world objects using a projector
  • Understanding of VVVV fundamentals

Your Tutor: Elliot Woods

Elliot is half of Koreo-Brittanic interaction design studio Kimchi and Chips, as seen in Wired, Endgadget and the BBC. He's a leader in the international projection mapping scene, creating the tools and techniques used from experimental art projects to multi-million dollar marketing campaigns. Elliot has taught professionals, students, children and led the professional projection mapping course at VVVV's own digital arts forum.
