SS23 – VVVV – 05 – Sequencing values on a Timeline using the Kairos library
May 25th & 26th 2023 6-9 PM (CET) / In English Language / Online via Zoom
This two session workshop is about using the Kairos library in real patch scenarios.
When it comes to timelines and tools to create data narratives Kairos is the way to go. It introduces a vast range of possibilities for managing live data and controlling your applications. Starting from the comprehension of the very essence of kairos principles, we’ll then familiarize with the library node set and patch together some use case scenarios. Soon it will be obvious that Kairos is not only a solution for common known problems, but truly a new land to be explored, where to shape new methodologies and creative paths.
You are learning directly from Kairos developer Natan Sinigaglia (aka dottore).

What you will learn:
- Timeline UI overview
- How to get data into the timeline from the patches
- How to sample the timeline and connect it to patch parameters
- How to register your own datatypes in Kairos
- If Kairos Research Lab resources and my schedule allow, new Kairos tools like Compositor and Matrix could be available when we do the workshop. In that case we would look at those as well, learning how to integrate different tools into a consistent control system.
