Processing Community Day Copenhagen 2022

Processing Community Day Copenhagen 2022
Join the free, one-day event, where we celebrate the intersection of art and code.
At this year's Processing Community Day Copenhagen we have the pleasure of welcoming Daniel Shiffman to lead a workshop. Daniel is the host of The Coding Train YouTube channel where he teaches concepts of programming in a fun and approachable way to 1.5 million subscribers. The Coding Train is a community welcoming beginner programmers and code-curious individuals to try their hand at expressing themselves with code, and the channel provides online educational content as sequenced video playlists, one-off video tutorials, and live streaming events. Daniel also teaches at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and serves on the Board of Directors of The Processing Foundation.

16:00 Unofficial welcome: A quick, unofficial welcome to the participants in the beginners workshop. More experienced programmers are welcome to join to help less experienced participants during the beginners workshop.

About the beginner workshop: 
This workshop is for absolute beginners, or people who have only dabbled with programming for fun. The workshop uses the p5.js web editor to teach basic programming concepts through the creation of visual forms. The workshop's two goals are: 1) to demystify and break down any misconceptions that programming is a difficult activity, and 2) to give participants an insight into the huge creative potential that lies in being able to think and create with code. Bring your own (fully charged) laptop. It is also recommended to create a free account at beforehand

Short bios: 
Ada Ada Ada is a hybrid artist working within an intersectional eco-feminist framework. She uses hyped technologies like AI, blockchain and more to challenge cultural preconceptions and technologically enforced power structures.

Jen Sykes is an artist, designer and lecturer based in Glasgow, Scotland. Her work spans creative computing, sculpture and electronic hardware designs often connecting the physical analog and digital worlds.

Emil Berzén is a Swedish Creative Technologist who specialises in augmented reality and interactive installations. With experience embodying both digital and physical experimental motion, he has created installations for clients ranging from museums to the fashion industry.

Vibeke Bertelsen is a cofounder of creative studio Vertigo who has worked with light art installations since 2011. Her talk is a look at the current state of machine learning in relation to image generation. Vibeke will give a sneak peek at cutting edge tools for creating images but will also take a critical look at this technology.

Nicolaj Stausbøl (or Staus) is a Creative Technology Director & Partner at Manyone with a focus on Spatial Computing, AR/VR and, lately, synthetic design with Machine Learning. His work mainly focus on theatrical immersion, like the physical VR documentary "X-Ray Fashion", the 1hr long 200m2 VR piece Anthrophia and the persistent provocative AR opera, "Silent Zone: Echo Chamber".

Info on Johan Bichel and Svend Sømod will be updated

Processing Community Day Copenhagen is a free, one-day event to celebrate the intersection of art and code. The event is a unique chance for everyone working with or just interested in code, design and digital art to meet in person, share what they're working on, learn from each other and make new connections. The event is open to everyone and requires no prior skills or knowledge of Processing or coding in general. Processing Community Day is a welcoming place for anyone interested in learning about programming, including those not normally represented in the fields of engineering and technology.

Processing is a free and open-source software platform for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts, created by Casey Reas and Ben Fry. It is complemented by a web version, called p5.js, created by Lauren McCarthy. To date, Processing and p5.js are used by a worldwide community of artists, coders, educators and students to create diverse art in the fields of graphic design, architecture, dance, photography, painting, etc. A focus of the Processing project is to make learning how to program and make creative work with code accessible to diverse communities, especially those who might not otherwise have access to these tools and resources.
