Katarina Hoeger will walk participants of this workshop through the process of generating an image that looks almost painted from code. She will discuss creative coding, pointillism, the basics of the process, and some of the steps she takes to manipulate the output of the process with her own images. Participants should bring their own laptop and an image of Ossining that resonates with them. Basic typing skills are necessary for the successful completion of this workshop. Images are created, any participants who chose to will be given the opportunity to display their work with the rest of the group’s images.REGISTER
During her residency, Katarina Hoeger will continue exploring the possibilities arising from images reconstructed using pixel data. During this exploration she plans to collect stories and pictures of Ossining and use a sequence of computer-generated images depicting her collection to show her changing understanding of and relation to Ossining over the course of her residency. The technique Katarina uses to reconstitute images is relatively new, so the end result will provide insight into the value of choosing to use this technique.
