Processing+Arduino. The Arduino (http://arduino.cc) development environment looks exactly the same as Processing, as it happens to be based off of it. The two toolkits work in tandem beautifully, particularly with the Firmata libraries. Firmata (http://firmata.org) is an Arduino firmware that creates a standard protocol to a variety of languages. The library for Processing is a natural transition in particular. In this workshop an Arduino will be used to create a custom hardware controller and then connected to an application created in Processing to control live visuals. Arduino Required. Materials for the controller will be provided. Familiarity with both Processing and Arduino suggested.
Joseph Gray earned a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in 1999, focusing in video and sculpture. Since then he has worked with digital art and design practices for both artistic projects and commercial design applications. He began learning programming working in the graphic design industry which quickly led to creating custom software and hardware tools for art installations and visual performances. His sculptural and performance work has been exhibited at Unit B Gallery in San Antonio, TX; Meridian Gallery and The Lab in San Francisco, CA and a variety of venues in the Pacific Northwest including 911 Media's former new media gallery. http://grauwald.com
