Form + Code

July 19, 2007 at 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm

A workshop and lecture by Chandler McWilliams and Casey Reas.

Form + Code is part lecture, part workshop, focusing on the relationship between code (computer programs) and visual form. The event is centered around six themes, Designing with Numbers, Repetition, Parameterization, Visualization, Transformation, and Simulation. Using these themes, we will discuss the history of procedural and algorithmic work using examples from architecture, visual design, and fine art. We will introduce the basics of computer programming with particular emphasis on creating software for screen, print, and 3D-fabrication. Each participant will have the opportunity to work with sample programs relevant to each of the six themes.

This evening is developed for people with little or no previous programming experience. All examples will be written in the Processing programming language.

We will provide chairs, and power outlets. You must provide a laptop computer capable of running Processing. Please download the software from www.processing.org/download before the event.

The event is limited to 30 people.
There is a required donation of $10.


Form + Code is offered in advance of TELIC’s media art + architecture classes series
