Intro to Programming Graphics Workshop with Sohrab Motabar

iii workspace, Willem Dreespark 312, The Hague
Fee: sliding scale €20-€40
Register at by February 20

This workshop is a very basic introduction to programming graphics on your computer. During this workshop we will look at inspiring websites, code our own drawings, and animate sketches in P5.js. These graphics can then be used on webpages and interact with HTML objects. We will practice ways to interact with these other objects.

We will also learn how to program simple generative graphics. We will start by sketching a dynamic drawing (moving image) using skills and concepts that we learned earlier. For this we will employ math and algorithms in generating graphics.

Through thus course, you will learn the following:
Drawing shapes
Control structures
Interaction with mouse and keyboard
Simple math (arithmetic, trigonometry, algorithms)
Introduction to OOP

No previous programming experience needed.

About the Facilitator

Sohrab Motabar (1984) is a composer from Tehran. With regards to states of suspension and dazzled motion his music resonates like a maze for the listener. He composes with algorithms, chaotic functions and non-standard synthesized sounds as a way to give rise to obscured dimensions and experimental modes of perceiving and listening. In 2018 he graduated from the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. In addition he also actively collaborates in select projects with artists from other disciplines.
