Doors open at 19.30 Uhr / 7.30 PM
Thomas Mann, who has a background in architecture and his friends founded the studio FRAMEFIELD ten years ago, to craft user-centered apps for VR, AR, 3D and medical. To that end, they developed the open-source software TOOLL. It leverages visual programming to provide a workflow for realtime graphics, creative coding and procedural animations. With origins in the demo scene TOOLL has extensive methods for syncing with music and the completely rewritten version 3 focusses on live performance and VJing.
Ployz aka Plyzitron is a Thai multimedia artist, living and working in Berlin. Her work takes on multiple forms, such as motion graphic design, 2D-3D animation, generative design and audiovisual art. She has a special interest in real-time visualization, art & science and analog-digital interfacing. Ployz will talk about her use of TouchDesigner in the production of “Chasing Waterfalls”, a multimedia opera which was partially composed and written by artificial intelligence, that premiered recently at Semperoper Dresden.
