Ever had the chance to design an interactive experience for 28 iPads? Now you do. M/O is a new interactive installation that, at its core, is a distributed multitouch screen made up of over two dozen tablets that wirelessly synchronizes interaction and animations across all its screens.
April 11th - 13th, 2016
Anyone interested in learning how to build a 28-ipad artwork. We will be able to accommodate all skill levels. This workshop will be led by @travis and @jakemakes.
You should bring a Mac laptop with the following:
We will start with an introduction to C4, a creative-coding framework that focuses on interaction, animation and media for iOS, and then dive into the infrastructure that makes it possible to build an interactive work on multiple tablets, including animations that can span all screens, and how they communicate with one another. Along the way we’ll provide instruction on how to program, test, debug and – most importantly – design media for presentation on M/O.
After learning how to build basic examples with C4 and design shapes / components using programs like PaintCode, we’re going to hand over to you all the classes, components, and media we’ve used to create our new artwork and give you free reign to build your own Universe for M/O.
