Internet Art Workshop with Shaheer Tarar
Saturday, 17 August 2019, 12-4 PM
In conjunction with the exhibition Networked Justice, Shaheer Tarar will be hosting an artist talk/workshop on Internet art.
His work, News of the World, imagines a world shaped purely by the text and images circulated by the online news media. The generative environment gathers the latest news stories and uses their content and metadata to spawn figures, objects, and landscapes which interact with each other within the frame of a web-page. News of the World updates itself with more creatures and features every five minutes, transforming through the course of the exhibition and mimicking the world building powers of the news media.
No previous coding experience is necessary.
Maximum capacity: 10 participants
Participants will need to bring their own laptop and download a code editing program. Brackets or Sublime Text are recommended and can be downloaded for free. If you are unable to bring a laptop, please let us know!
