The new vvvv equips you with visual object-oriented programming. Extend your node menu with any .NET library. Anything you need for your interactive installations.
TouchDesigner is a visual development platform that equips you with the tools you need to create stunning realtime projects and rich user experiences.
FUSE is a new library for visually programming on the GPU, built to enable rapid workflows and modular approaches to accelerated graphics, logic and computation.
After the roadmap presentation in December 2020 you are now invited to join the core development team of FUSE to celebrate the first preview release of the library. We will take an introductory tour of what has been produced and discuss future directions for The FUSE Lab.
VR Worlding for Planetary Emergency – Apply now!
The ongoing climate disaster puts many worlds in imminent danger. But conveying the entanglements of the more-than-human relations is an arduous task. Playful approaches can directly affect our sensory faculties beyond the realm of power and knowledge. The »stretching senses school« is an education-as-research project at the Tieranatomisches Theater Berlin (TA T) attached to the exhibition Stretching Materialities, co-partnered with the Node Institute Berlin.
Through this workshop-based contribution to the exhibition, we intend to foster collaboration between anthropology and immersive interaction design. We will engage with research creation in order to raise awareness of the public on the multiscale and embedded interconnections between humans and other earthly beings.
Dynamic immersive experiences mapped onto a physical space are at the core of the exhibition »Stretching Materialities« of the MoA project Object Space Agency. At the center of the roundly shaped exhibition space, a portal-like VR elevator is built. With it, the visitors can hitch rides across temporal and spatial scales. We envision this device as a platform for collaboration. We want to extend and to share this toy with other artists, programmers and digital activists who are interested in stretching senses and blending physical and virtual in hybrid setups — to produce compelling experiences which will help to challenge our anthropo-centered imaginations and acknowledge our hypo-subjectivities in the face of the climate crisis.
The members of the school will receive a compensation for their time, and accept to take part in the activities and complete the production of research creation artworks. They will be given the opportunity to exhibit their results and to collaborate on interdisciplinary research publications. The design mentors of the school will share their experience, lead the team members to produce research and design works, in collaboration with the scholars of the project »Object Space Agency« at »Matters of Activity«. Node Institute is providing the support of its community of practitioners.
We intend to build a community of ›members‹ which will pursue its activities in the years to come, fostering playful and excessive collaborations between ecological humanities and digital designers.

Want to share?
This platform is made for you and your business to learn and share expertise in production pipelines, realtime animations and sound, creative coding, computational design, creative technologies. You name it!
We are happy to help making your knowledge visible and learnable to new talents and new game changers. If you feel like this is your platform. Hey great! Drop us a line.
This is pre release and intermedia webpage of The NODE Institute with the aim to provide a home for the visual programming communities.
We work closely together with the Frankfurt based NODE Forum for Digital Arts and provide continuous learning opportunities between their festival editions.
We are dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and inspiration. We organise workshops and webinars and host user meetings for the vvvv, TouchDesigner, Notch and other creative communities in our studio in Berlin and worldwide through online participation of the same.
We connect educators with students, clients with experts, problems with solutions.
Let’s be honest. If you do what we do, you do it because you love it. And that’s what makes it so rewarding to meet likeminded people that dedicate their talents to explore the borderlands of art, technology, performance and programming.
To enjoy each others company, to share inspiration, to come up with new projects, to help each other out and to chat about something completely different.
We enjoy facilitating these encounters, live in our studio in Berlin and worldwide.
Our mission is to complement the great wealth of user generated tutorials with an organised learning path suited for professionals.
As a platform we connect students and educators in a way that benefits both.
Educators can spend more time on creating learning materials and help students when they get paid.
Students will be able to aquire certificates, backed up by industry professionals that actually mean something when looking for a job.
United we stand, divided we fall.
We don’t believe in competition. We believe that great talents will want to create great work together and make a living. That works better together than against each others.
Call us hippies if you want, but we want to contribute to a world where people respect each others work and viewpoints and help each other to grow. Where people think critical about the state of the world, their work andour common future.
