[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Creating Interactive Artworks with Isadora
Creating Interactive Artworks with Isadora
Creating Interactive Artworks with Isadora: The three-day workshop
will focus on creating interactive performance, installation and VJ
sets using Isadora (http://www.troikatronix.org/isadora.html), a real-
time media manipulation tool that has become the software of choice
for hundreds of artists worldwide. Taught by Mark Coniglio (creator
of Isadora and Artistic Co-Director of multimedia performance group
Troika Ranch), the participants will learn to use Isadora's flexible
building blocks to present and manipulate video and sound in real-
time. Coniglio will then build upon this knowledge by showing how
external sensory systems can allow performers or viewers to
interactively control the media with gestures or vocalizations. All
workshop participants will receive a three-month temporary license
for the software so that they may continue their exploration after
the workshop concludes.
Participants will ideally have some background in creating media-
intensive artworks. An understanding of how to capture video and/or
audio using software like Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Premiere, or Windows
Movie Maker will benefit the participants as they integrate their own
digital media into the process, though it is not required.
Participants are required to bring their own computer (see below for
minimum requirements). If this is not possible, please let us know
and we can see what we can do to accommodate you.
The workshop will take place from Monday February 11 through Thursday
morning February 14. Included is an afternoon with special STEIM
presentations on junXion, LiSa and the junXionboard to place Isadora
in a STEIM context.
