Workshop Master Class 2012
Title : Generative Systems – From Drawing to 3D Printing
Teacher : Marius Watz
Dates : 13/14/15 April
Cost : 150 €
The Workshop will be taught in English.
In this master class Marius Watz will show how to create generative systems for a range of creative outputs. Starting with the creation of a basic generative gesture, he will demonstrate how to design systems for maximum potential, including defining and modulating parameters. Three core topics will be explored: Creating drawing systems, realtime generative animation and computational geometry for 3D printing.
Participants will be provided with pre-written Processing sketches that form a framework that can easily be expanded and customized. Watz will then walk through the creation of these frameworks from the ground up, demonstrating an iterative creative process. Final examples include code for high-res output for professional use.
