Workshop: Camera spoofing, Kinect-hacking and more
Learn the basics of computer vision from Jeremy Bailey
Engage in a game between your computer, your webcam and yourself. Be a boss and create your own tools to physically control your computer. Our favorite Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey will teach you how to do that by hacking existing software. By the end of the day you'll have made your own, software reality. Get your ticket(s) here.
This workshop will include an introduction to the Max creative programming environment, software tactics for camera spoofing, online video platforms and an introduction to recent computer vision techniques (including instruction on depth sensing cameras like the Kinect necessary for skeletal tracking and 1:1 facial gesture mapping.) Participants should have at least some basic comprehension of computer programming.
Don't forget to bring your laptop!!
Jeremy Bailey is a Toronto-based Famous New Media Artist whose work explores custom software in a performative context. His work is often confidently self-deprecating in offering hilarious parodies of new media vocabularies." (Marisa Olson, Rhizome)
