Interactive installations & performances using computer vision (Kinect / webcams & Processing)
The workshop is addressed to artists or developers who wish to add interactivity to their projects using cameras or the Kinect sensor. Through computer vision techniques, parameters of the environment (such as human motion) can be detected and used to create interaction in real time.
Instructor: Caterina Antonopoulou
Where: Frown Tails, Athens
During the workshop, found objects of the Arcade of Merchants will be transformed into interfaces of an interactive installation using the Arduino Board and multiple sensors.
The interactive objects created during the workshop will be used to activate in real time an audiovisual installation.
Instructor: Caterina Antonopoulou
Where: Arcade of Merchants, Voulis 8-10, Athens
Introduction to interactive artworks
In the context of the group exhibition “Things”, a workshop on interactive artworks will take place at the The Art Foundation on May 5th. During the workshop, a series of interactive interfaces will be presented, ranging from computer vision interfaces (e.g cameras) to sensors and electronic prototyping platforms (e.g arduino).
Instructors: Caterina Antonopoulou, Daphne Polyzos
Where: TAF / The Art Foundation. 5 Normanou str., Athens 105 55
When: Saturday, May 5th, 2012 @ 13.00
Theater & Animation creative workshop
