WORKSHOP: ‘Ways of Seeing (with Computers)’
The two-day workshop will take place 17 and 18 June in the studio of De Brakke Grond.Led by forerunner Elliot Woods of Seoul-based art studio Kimchi and Chips, this hands-on programme will present an advanced introduction to Rulr, an open source node-based application for calibrating artistic devices with the physical world. Workshop participants will work in groups to conceive and build a model scene using projectors, structured light scanning and volumetric shading techniques, as well as simple materials such as thread, paper, and foam board. Expect exciting results: new ways to draw in the air, develop volumetric canvases and build semi-material sculptures. More details on this intensive workshop can be found here.
Workshop applications close this Friday, 12 June.
EVENING PROGRAMME PARTICIPANTS
Rosa Menkman [NL] // Keynote Presentation
Since 2007, Netherlands-based glitch artist Rosa Menkman has honed her study of ‘glitch ecologies’ through both performances and static work. In her presentation, Rosa will focus on the productive consequences of these ‘accidental’ visual artifacts: glitches provide important insight into the obscured politics of media resolutions.
Steven Puttemans [BE] // Presentation
Belgium-based computer vision researcher and member of the EAVISE research group (KU Leuven) Steven Puttemans specialises in artificial intelligence, automated computer vision, biometrics, and robotics. At Coded Matter(s) #9 Steven will showcase his active research projects TOBCAT: Industrial Applications of Object Categorisation, and 3D4SURE--an investigation into the rise of sensor technology in geo-surveying, and the evolution towards 3D models of geo-imaging.

Manchester-born digital media artist, technologist, curator, and educator Elliot Woods is best known from his work with Seoul-based art studio Kimchi and Chips.
