Studio Mode is pleased to announce the fourth installment of the coLab workshop series: Interactive Parametrics. Interactive Parametrics is a two-day Processing workshop (with an optional third day) focusing on dynamic sketches and prototyping. The workshop will be held in New York City during the weekend of February 19.
This fast-paced workshop will focus on interactive parametric design strategies. Using Processing as our base platform, we will design real-time dynamic behavior systems, implement interfacing techniques for fluid use, and iteratively prototype the solutions in physical format through rapid prototyping and digital die-cutting. Through a series of focused exercises and design tasks, each attendee will build a stand-alone parametric design sketch and work through the process of prototyping, realizing a set of solutions through computer numerically controlled equipment (Makerbot “Thing-O-Matic” and KNK High-Force Cutters). An optional third workshop day is offered to those participants desiring further time to develop individual projects or lines of research. As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.
Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors. Participants are encouraged to be familiar with the basic concepts of parametric design and interface of Processing.
