CONTEXT

There is a rich pallet of user-friendly tools on the web today that can be mixed and matched (and mashed) together to produce incredible
results. Artists and designers are the perfect practitioners to apply lateral thinking and creativity to their engagement with these tools. There is just a small step to grasping them, which can be eased by real-world examples and demonstrations.

DETAILS

We will be looking at cutting-edge photo-reconstruction software, to learn how to take images and finish with a real 3D printed object! Other tools introduced are video hosting (YouTube, Vimeo), image hosting (Flickr, Picassa), blogs and online maps (Yahoo Maps, OpenStreetMap, Google Maps), exploring how they can be combined into exciting new visualisations using mashup tools (Yahoo Pipes, Dipity).

The workshop is intended to teach this collection of exciting tools, and help facilitate the development of ideas participants may want to bring along. Participants can work individually or collaboratively, and after an initial introduction to each tool, studio work will begin with hands-on assistance.

OUTCOME

There’ll be an opportunity to print your own reconstructed objects, and finished projects will be presented and documented at the end of the workshop, and displayed on the workshop website.
