Mapping (Moving) Image Data
Mapping (Moving) Image Data¶
“Mapping (Moving) Image Data” is an introduction to programming for artists and designers. Mapping here refers to the cognitive method of transferring from one to another (cf. analogy). Programming, digital processes, artificial intelligence (but also biological (artificial) intelligence) are full of mappings. These should help us to grasp programming mentally. But beyond that, we also want to realize our own program-driven mappings. Using p5.js, Processing and Python we will modify images (static and moving) based on mappings: Pixel-level image processing, image generation based on a set of rules, classification of images, sound-driven (moving) images.
The goal of the course, in addition to learning basic programming skills, is to develop a small project on program- and data-driven (moving) images. This makes it suitable as a supplement to the Projektmodul »Lost (in) music«.
