Workshop 2: Learning Derivative’s TouchDesigner with Steve Mason (Obscura Digital)
Learning Derivative’s TouchDesigner with Steve Mason (Obscura Digital)
Learn how TouchDesigner, the real-time visual development platform driving Amon Tobin’s ISAM, Plastikman Live and CineChamber, can be used for creating interactive media systems, immersive/projection mapping environments, music visuals, and rapid-prototyping creative impulses.
Workshop leaders Steve Mason and Barry Threw have produced remarkable large-scale architectural projections and interactive media experiences for San Francisco-based Obscura Digital. They are, by nature and in practice, consummate designers, technologists and developers who consistently break new ground in most forms of media/arts production. Greg Hermanovic, of course, is the founder and leader of the Derivative team that makes TouchDesigner.
