REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR THE INTERACCESS INTERACTIVE ART WORKSHOP SERIES: Ag EDITION

ia

InterAccess's Interactive Art Workshop Series provides artists with the tools needed to begin exploring the creative uses of technology. Participants gain a solid technical foundation for realizing their artistic vision. Our workshops demonstrate how a computer can communicate with and integrate visuals, audio and electronics. InterAccess emphasizes production strategies for artworks that take place in real space and real time, including performance, interactive installation, audio, video, and kinetic or robotic sculpture and installation.

Celebrating our Silver Anniversary (that’s 25 years, y’all!) in style, InterAccess is proud to kick off 2008 with IA25: Mapping a Practice of Media Art, featuring Simone Jones & Julian Oliver, Lorena Salomé, Galen Scorer and Norman White. Two master class Workshops will run in conjunction with the exhibition. Please see below for more information.

WORKSHOPS FEBRUARY THROUGH APRIL 2008

SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY WORKSHOPS

TAMING THE OCTOPUS: BUILDING LONGEVITY AND EASIER MAINTENANCE INTO ELECTRONIC ART
IMPRESS YOUR FRIENDS IN BARS!”
Saturday, February 2 and Sunday, February 3, 12pm-5pm both days
Cost: $200 members; $225 non-members
Instructors: Simone Jones and Norman White

In their pursuit of the latest electronic technologies, artists often overlook basic construction techniques that would make their finished products more robust and easier to maintain. This workshop takes a step backward into the lo-tech world of physical assembly and interconnection strategies, comparing the pros and cons of each. Intermediate/Advanced Level workshop.

REMOTE- PRESENCE
Wednesday, February 6, and Thursday, February 7, 7-10pm both nights
Cost: $120 members; $150 non-members
Instructors: Lorena Salomé and Galen Scorer

This workshop looks at tools and technologies to bridge electronic space using telematic technologies by building their own Remote-Presence controller. In the first day, participants will look at how to build a low tech remote-control with and without microcontrollers. On the second day, participants will explore practical tools such as Max, Jitter, PHP, for making the ultimate remote-presence controller. Intermediate/Advanced Level workshop.


I WANNA MAKE ELECTRONIC ART!
Wednesday, February 13, 7pm-9pm
Cost: $20 for members; $30 for non-members
Instructor: Laura Paolini

This introductory presentation will bring you up-to-date with key information about the tools, vocabulary, and preparation needed to incorporate interactivity into your art by providing both historical overviews and discussing current trends in new media and interactive art. Focusing on key terms to discuss landmark artworks aims at making new media art less intimidating and more familiar.

INTRO TO VISUAL COMPUTING
Wednesday, February 20, 7-10pm
Cost: $30 for members; $40 for non-members
Instructor: Frank Tsonis

Visual Computing/Programming (VP) is a programming language where users manipulate graphical elements rather than writing lines of code. This course is designed as an introduction to Visual Programming focusing on the fundamental concepts required before using Max/MSP and Pure Data. We will create simple Max programs and also examine pre-programmed audio and video programs created in Max/MSP. This is an introductory course serving as a foundation for future Max and Pure Data courses offered at InterAccess.

INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRONICS
Saturday, March 1, and Sunday, March 2, 12pm-5pm both days
Cost: $150 for members; $175 for non-members
Instructor: Rob Cruickshank

This workshop is for artists with no previous experience in electronics, or those who've had some, but need a refresher. We'll cover the basics of electricity, starting with Ohm's Law, and work our way up to building simple digital circuits with CMOS chips, transistors and LEDs. We'll also discuss how to interface these circuits with the "real world" of motors, sensors, and other devices. Math will be kept to a minimum, but we will approach things from the point of designing circuits, rather than simply building "cookbook" circuits. This workshop is a valuable prerequisite for anyone wishing to work with microcontrollers, such as the PIC series or the popular Arduino.

INTRODUCTION TO PROCESSING/ MOBILE PROCESSING PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE
Saturday, March 8, and Sunday, March 9, 12-4pm both days
Cost: $120 for members; $150 for non-members
Instructors: Rob King, Ken Leung and Patricio Davila
In conjunction with OCAD and Portage: The Canadian Mobile Experience

Processing is a great way for artists and designers to learn object-oriented programming basics. This is a very versatile language that allows you to quickly create interactive artworks, sound tools and generative art among many other projects. This two-day workshop will introduce you to the basics of programming in Processing and Mobile Processing (used for writing applications on mobile phones).

MAX/MSP/JITTER: MAKING ART MORE INTERESTING?
Tuesday, March 18, and Thursday, March 20, 7-10pm both nights.
Cost: $90 for members; $115 for non-members
Instructor: Frank Tsonis

The Max/MSP/Jitter software environment is ideal for artists interested in creating interactive audio/visual/sculptural installations or software for live performances. This workshop will
discuss the fundamentals of the software and cover some of the following topics: discussing basic Max objects essential for any patch, camera Input/tracking and processing, audio input/output and digital signal processing, creating graphical user interfaces for existing Max patches, preparing for an installation, preparing for a live performance
.

INTRODUCTION TO ARDUINO
Wednesday, March 26, 7-10pm
Cost: $45 for members; $60 for non-members
Instructor: Gordon Hicks

Arduino is a microcontroller, similar to BASIC Stamp and PIC that is designed to control physical computing projects. The workshop will introduce you to the Arduino and give you a hands-on experience of programming for simple physical computing applications. You will learn what hardware and software you need, where to get it, and how it all together into a baseline Arduino platform.

SENSORS
Saturday, March 29 and Sunday, March 30, 12pm-4pm both days
Cost: $120 for members; $150 for non-members
Instructor: Jessica Field

The workshop will introduce you to a variety of different sensors, explain how they work, show the three different types of interfaces to work your sensor and prepare you for using any sensor you would like in the future.

INTERMEDIATE ELECTRONICS
Saturday, April 5 and Sunday, April 6, 12pm-5pm both days
Cost: $150 for members; $175 for non-members
Instructor: Rob Cruickshank

Our resident electronic guru ups the voltage (yikes!) in this intermediate class.

Learn how to build more complex digital circuits, and how to use CMOS chips as “glue” between microcontrollers and the external world. Got 256 LEDs and only 8 output pins to control them? This one’s for you. This workshop is for those who have completed the introduction to electronics workshop, or have equivalent experience. You should understand basic logic functions like AND, OR and NOT, and be able to build a circuit on a breadboard without assistance. Microcontroller (PIC, STAMP, Arduino, etc. ) experience will be helpful, but not required.
