Who takuma
When Fri, Aug 21st 2020 - 17:00 until Fri, Aug 21st 2020 - 20:00
Where online webinar, Germany

Learn from the creator of the vvvv beta video tutorial series takuma:

vvvv is well known for its realtime graphics powers. If you want to understand the proper workflow on how to achieve procedural realtime visuals you have to understand the packs and contributions and their most important nodes. This webinar takes you there.

We will be learning how to create a procedural graphic using vvvv beta. In combination with FieldTrip and some other interesting packs and nodes such as spline buffer Matcap and so on, we will develop an artistic good looking visual in a dense quality and color which can be used as a poster, wall paper or whatever.

This course is a good basis to dive deeper into the scene at this years online edition of NODE20 – Forum for Digital Arts. Prepare your neurons and get ready.

When Fri, Oct 2nd 2020 until Thu, Oct 8th 2020

Artwork by andand.xyz

Patchers worldwide!

Since our initial announcement you may have noticed, the world has changed. It took us a while to adapt to those changes, but here we are, NODE20 is going to happen:

Experiment

The main challenge we see with this mostly online edition, is how to realize the levels of intimacy we reached at the previous NODEs. Unfortunately, current constraints don't allow us to do what has always been at the core of NODE: bringing as many of us together in meat space for some quality time.

But "constraints" is also what we like to embrace as challenges, so with NODE20 we're hoping to make the best of the given situation. It will be an experiment that will certainly not work for everyone. On the other hand the online focus has the potential to involve so many more people than only those who are privileged enough to be able to travel to Frankfurt.

In Progress...

What you don't know, is that behind the scenes there is already a team of about 20 people (NODE all-stars with the help of some new faces) working since months to raise money (not easy in corona times) , negotiate contracts, design websites, curate programs and think about how we can make this special version of NODE more than a passive online-stream.

We have two ideas that we hope will make the difference:

Theme

The title #SecondNature is set. The core idea remains the same: Let's explore art-making and digital creative practices in times of ecological crisis - a crisis that is, in large part, fueled by our technology needs. How seriously do we as a community of digital creators take our share of responsibility? How can we rethink our practices, challenge our industries, and empower others to do the same? A first step is the critical examination of the go-to tools and processes that have become our ‘second nature’. From imagination to implementation—if collapse is to be averted, rewriting our Second Nature will be key.

Curators Jeanne Charlotte Vogt (NODE) and Alexander Scholz (HOLO) are keen to hear your input. They prepared this form before corona hit. Thank you for those who already filled it out. You are still invited to share information about your practice and how you relate. https://forms.gle/N9Xbxsnxj7aCPRPG6
Over the coming weeks, the curation team will reach out with more ideas and notes on how we will address the topic together with you. Your ideas are welcome, see below!

Workshops

We're curating a series of about 25 online workshops and lectures. The first bunch is already confirmed. Many more are still to come!

If you want to offer a workshop, please send us a proposal. If you're missing a workshop on a specific topic, please send us a request.

We want as many people to share their knowledge during NODE20, so even if we don't choose your proposal: Every participant of NODE20 will be able to announce their own lectures/workshops on the spot, unconference style.

And even after NODE20 there'll be the chance for everyone to run their workshops or courses via The NODE Institute. So please definitely make yourself heard. We want to know what you can share!

Help

Want to help? We are looking for volunteer support in the following areas:
1) Frankfurt on-site professional support for the conference production
2) Preparing Polls / Questionaries for the conference
3) Generate ideas and setup tools to contribute to the festival theme
4) Online support for workshop moderation

Please get in touch via: david.bruell@nodeforum.org and use our chat room: Towards NODE20


Curious and want to know more? Join us for the 5th worldwide vvvv meetup where the makers of NODE20 will answer all your questions.

Already convinced? Get your tickets.

We got Kat! A visual artist using vvvv since 2012 for interactive installations, VJ, Real time graphics and video production. Last 4 year I was also working as a vj in clubs/festivals and developed my own tool for vjing using WPF and vvvv. I will show the inside of the WPF project and vvvv patches to demonstrate how both communicate together, using midi controllers and OSC.


Christine Meyerhofer & Nils Weger

Location: Frankfurt / Offenbach
ravel & phlegma
https://christinemayerhofer.de/https://nodeforum.org/people/nils-weger/

Travelling to severals music festivals and building light sculptures for dance floors inspired us to develop this light control software. Many years of experiences in live performing helped us to create this modular interface optimised for generative visuals.

Next to texture based animation you can work with 3d geometry in virtual space to create visuals on LED light matrices. This technique is very efficient by adapting to new light set ups and is giving a great room perception. The live performance interface is based on the Runtime Model by dottore model-runtime-editor-design-pattern. For the Show to luminale 2020 we integrated the timeline Tilda by nsynkhttps://discourse.vvvv.org/t/vl-tilda/17644 and created the light show „Binärtransformation - digitized life“https://www.luminale.de/projekte/digitales-leben

Unfortunately we didn’t had any visitors at Luminale 2020 thanks to corona. So we are waiting for the next change to build it up again.

Andres is a vvvv user since beta23. Rather than an artist he defines himself as a Maker. With a background in graphic design and electronics, he uses vvvv as a tool for all kind of hardware interactions, VJing, and professional work. He will show us a few of his projects and experiments made with vvvv, from fun electronics projects, dmx and pixel mapping, drones + shaders, vjing, and interactive lasers.
