Casey Reas: Generative Artist and Co-Creator of Processing visiting Champlain / Vermont Makers Group Talk

Casey Reas, a generative artist and the co-creator of the Processing programming language, will be leading a workshop on Processing.

Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. Initially developed to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing also has evolved into a tool for generating finished professional work. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.

In addition, Casey will be giving a talk Thursday evening at 6:30, also at Miller Center, on contemporary digital art practice. The talk is also in conjunction with the first meeting of the Vermont Makers group, a newly formed group of DIY electronics enthusiasts. After the talk, we will stick around to discuss the growing Maker community in Vermont.

We are lucky to have Casey who’s show is opening at the BCA Center the following night. Friday, March 23, 5 p.m.-8 p.m. More information here.
