Livestream 16.12.2023
●How do recent technological developments empower makers to generate new creative avenues? How is the creative coding landscape going to evolve in the coming few years? These questions will be explored during the creative coding symposium ITERATIONS. With a focus on inclusivity, we invited an international group of makers from different disciplines to talk about how they use code as a creative medium. In the form of presentations, interactive sessions, and workshops we will discuss the themes: machine learning, computational craft, and creative education.

You can join the symposium physically at the TIME IS THE NEW SPACE in Rotterdam or watch the talks online for free. Some of the workshops will be taught online as well.

Body tracking in p5.js
Nahuel Gerth FRIDAY
Join me at ITERATIONS for a deep dive into the world of embodied interaction, playful sound devices and speculative design through code. Merging my backgrounds of web design and Creative Coding I will show you field tests, experiments and current explorations. What is mediapipe and how can it track your body? How can we reimagine the body as the interface for digital devices? How can we manipulate type through code? What is Creative Coding and what is my personal journey behind it? How can we transform society through speculative design? See you soon!

Generative kinetic typography
Daniel Maarleveld FRIDAY
In this workshop I will show some examples of my generative type systems. And will give an Introduction of using cavalry for generative design. And i will explain some of the principles and logic of setting up type experiments.

Max 15
What to bring Laptop with cavalry installed (free to use). And possibly vector software. Like Inkscape. And Illustrator.
Nice to have No previous knowledge required.

Noise, shape, color
Stig Møller Hansen SATURDAY
In this workshop, Stig will pick up on the ideas presented in his talk on the first day of the symposium. Here, he discussed his teaching approach of using pre-existing graphic design products as "objects to think with" to help novice coders work towards a fixed goal and pick up valuable tricks and techniques along the way.The "object to think with" chosen for this workshop is the cover design of the Japanese quarterly magazine IDEA issue 377 (2017), designed by Kensaku Kato & Seigo Kitaoka.

Stig will guide the workshop participants through the deconstruction of the cover and introduce the code elements needed to reconstruct it. This includes: Perlin Noise fields, Randomness distribution (uniform vs. non-uniform), SVG shapes, Color palette generation

By the end of the workshop, participants will have a better grasp of the covered topics and how they can be combined to create a variety of new designs. By adjusting the variables, shapes, and colors, attendees will be able to generate a multitude of unique designs based on the code generated in the workshop.

Deconstruction / Reconstruction
Michelle Vossen SATURDAY
Components are boring! Let's craft soft sensors ourselves and create tangible interactions that make you to move your hands and body in different ways. During this workshop you will learn how to use various textile techniques like crochet and spool knitting to make your own sensor that responds on strokes, stretching and squeezing. We're going to embed the sensor in a garment so we can wear and visualize the interaction with them using Processing.Through embroidering, knitting or felting with a combination of conductive and resistive yarn, you can create your own variable resistors. It can then be used to translate touch and movement into whatever output you like.

Max 15
What to bring your own garment (if possible) to turn into a wearable;
Nice to have Processing experience is nice to have but not required :-)
