JANUARY 2013
Interactive Environments with Sound and Video using MAX/MSP/Jitter

This 3-week workshop introduced participants to the use of technology as a tool to produce digital interactive artwork. Participants were encouraged to reflect on Latino identity, topics of migration and biculturalism.

The software used was Max/MSP. It is a graphical environment for creating and manipulating audio, video, and multimedia with a computer. It will be taught from the perspective of an artist. We covered basic programming using the graphical interface in Max, MSP audio objects and Jitter video objects.

The Installations produced during the workshop were exhibited in the Multicultural Center
