Description

THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING PLEASE EMAIL MUSEUM@DUNDEE.AC.UK AND WE WILL ADD YOU TO A WAITING LIST IN CASE OF ANY CANCELLATIONS.

Create your own virtual organisms in these special workshops by computer art duo Genetic Moo. Using design and creative coding, in the first part of the workshop you will learn how to design your creatures digitally, experimenting with different body parts, muscles and sensors. In the second part, find out how to program simple animating backgrounds which will trigger your creatures into action. At the end of this stimulating workshop we will bring some of the ‘created’ creatures together into a virtual world, while observing how they behave. Coding will be done using the free and open source Processing Language. After the workshop, we will email participants with the resulting programs and will explain how you can carry on your exciting coding experiments at home.

The workshop will run twice – a family-friendly version in the morning (10am-12.30pm) and one for adults in the afternoon (2-4.30pm).

Please note –

Workshops will be 2.5 hours long with a short break in the middle. All equipment will be provided.

The workshops will be run by Nicola Schauerman and Tim Pickup who make up the digital art group Genetic Moo and have ten years of experience creating interactive creatures for events and exhibitions up and down the country. They filled a shop full of digital beasties at Dundee's Wellgate Centre for NEoN Digital Arts Festival 2016.

The afternoon workshop is intended for adults aged 18 and upwards.

There is a fee of £10 per person. Please pay in cash on the day.

Places are limited so please let us know if you book but are unable to attend.
