Generative Art Workshop

Offered by George Varnavides.
Generative art is a type of audiovisual art generated using an algorithm. It often lies at the intersection of mathematical patterns and aesthetic appeal and its results can be stunning and refreshing. In this four-day workshop we will explore some of the aspects of generative art, starting with traditional examples such as mathematical fractals and chaotic attractors, and extending it to discrete and continuous physical systems such as diffusion limited aggregation and microstructural evolution. We will also be exploring multiple media such as visual and audio. The instructors will be using both Jupyter and Wolfram notebooks to illustrate concepts and examples, but participants can choose to use any appropriate language of their choice. No prerequisites. Advanced signup required; signup deadline Jan. 3, 2022. Signup here.
