Join us for this unique workshop for anyone wanting to crossover to coding art using Processing. Be part of an informal discussion between Chang Liu and other artists, designers and art school students. Chang will talk about her personal methods of making coding art in Processing. She will cover some basic ideas of Processing and attendees will be able to participate in making cool stuff together by the end of workshop.
After the workshop, stick around for the opening of Wild Growth, a solo show by Chang Liu opening at LMNL Gallery at 6:00pm. Wild Growth will include a combination of printed, video, and interactive works. The centerpiece of the exhibition will be a live installation of Liu’s Wild Growth, an application created by Liu to digitally “paint” scenes from a nearby webcam.
Viewers will be able to see Wild Growth in action, and participate in the creation of its digital paintings. The counterpoint to Wild Growth will be Super Light, a large-scale audiovisual installation reminiscent of glitches, test patterns, and the kinds of flickering imagery that we only glimpse briefly as our electronic devices power on and off. Rounding out the exhibition will be a series of printed works, outputs from a program by Liu that creates computer-generated works inspired by Jackson Pollock. Wild Growth explores the space in between spaces: In between the natural and the digital worlds, on and off, complete logical control and apparent chaos… it’s a mystical space on the edge of discovery.
