WORKSHOP | Deploying ephemeral immersive spaces
How can visual artists critically address emerging technologies while becoming increasingly dependent on their use? In recent years, the democratization of immersive experiences in various artistic contexts has gone hand in hand with the development of paid software, depriving some artists of the opportunity to experiment with these new tools. The open-source movement, on the contrary, offers an alternative path that presents certain opportunities and challenges.
This workshop is aimed at art researchers, artists, designers, content creators and other creatives interested in creating immersive spaces. This workshop will be an opportunity to discover various open-source software developed by SAT's research and development laboratory, the Metalab. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the principles of open-source software, as well as how to use some of them for different artistic tasks - from sound spatialization and video mapping to motion detection and interactivity.
This workshop is a short version of a 2-day training course offered by Metalab’s researchers. Especially designed for SIGGRAPH 2023, this new 1.5-hour format will be offered exceptionally to MUTEK Forum participants. This training session includes a presentation and demonstration of open-source tools and their functionalities, as well as a period of experimentation in the immersive space.
For a more engaging interaction with the tools presented, familiarity with OSC/NDI interaction protocols is a plus.
Please note that this activity will take place in French. No prerequisites required.
During the event, no transcription or interpreter will be present.
