POSTED BY: Carl-Johan Rosén | Mon Aug 27th, 2007 10 a.m.

New Media Meeting and Interactive Institute call for participation at a 2-day workshop on openFrameworks and physical interfaces. The workshop will be held at New Media Meeting 2007, Norrkoping, Sweden, September 21st - 22nd by the artists and framework initiators Zachary Lieberman and Theodore Watson. OpenFrameworks is a complete, cross platform, open source collection of tools for creative coders. It’s used worldwide in various projects and installations (see below for a selection of openFrameworks-based projects) for experimenting with computer vision, sounds, animation and interactive interfaces. Check out openframeworks.cc/about for more information.

The theme for New Media Meeting 2007 is media art in urban environments and the workshop will be following the same lines with the topic “Leaving the Screen”. Participants will be introduced to openFrameworks and its possibilities by Zachary and Theodore and have the opportunity to discuss concepts and solutions for projects and installations. The workshop results will also be presented on New Media Meeting’s final evening. Participants will also have full access to the rest of the festival program and talks.

To be one of the limited number of workshop participants at New Media Meeting 2007, just send an e-mail to workshop@newmediameeting.se, describing yourself and why you want to participate. Some coding experience is expected and preferably a computer (Windows, MacOSX or Linux). New Media Meeting can only provide a limited number of pc’s. However, cameras, speakers, microphones, Arduinos and internet will be provided. The workshop is free of charge.
