Workshop by Kirell BENZI
In this data art initiation workshop, we introduce powerful yet accessible tools for starting getting creative with data. We first start by reviewing some data basics and rapidly move on to the creation and manipulation of the dataset we will use. The second, and most important, part of the workshop is dedicated to the creation of our first data art piece with Cables, a visual programming language in the browser. While no experience is required in data manipulation or programming, an understanding of data structures will help.
To apply to the workshop, you need to be comfortable with manipulating files on your system, browsing the web and be completely autonomous with your computer/laptop. You have a working microphone and a high-speed internet connection. Your browser needs to support WebGL (Chrome preferred).
You can test it here: https://get.webgl.org/.
