MU Creatieve Code Workshop Day program:

11:00 - 13:00 | Creatures and worlds – 3D Animation workshop

Pixar films and games like Fortnite seem almost magical. But did you know that you can  create your own digital creatures and worlds with MU? During this drop-in workshop you will learn creatures to life using digital 3D animation. POST NEON is the creative design studio from Amsterdam that created this workshop with MU. Their installation, Generation XYZ, has been featured at various festivals and schools. With their project POST SCHOOL, they aim to introduce as many young people as possible to 3D design and animation.

Bring a laptop if you want to join this workshop!

14:00 - 17:00 | Computer Por[traits]workshop

This workshop is about portraits, computers, and facial recognition. Many artists work with these concepts. We share all sorts of information about ourselves on the Internet (data). How can we make an image of a person using their data? What would your data-portrait look like? Join us to create your own analogue Computer POR[TRAIT]. In the second part of the workshop, we will find out how (well?) the computer can recognize faces. Computers see faces in a different way than us humans do. Can you trick a smart computer by making faces out of clay?

Have you done enough workshopping? Relax and watch a video of the Manic Accuracy project by Simone N. Niquille or make Pixel Selfies with iron-on beads.

About the Hackers & Designers Summer Camp 2024
The Hackers & Designers Summer Camp 2024 Unruly Currents & Everyday Piracy is happening 15 – 25 July 2024 at Het Wilde Weg. During camp, 30 residents will embark on an adventure of learning, making and living together. With this format we aim for a holistic and intersectional way of thinking about and practicing sustainability (socially, ecologically, economically, culturally) and reknit the sometimes arbitrary boundaries between work, play, leisure, maintenance and care.

The workshops are part of MU's Play & Learn educational program and are mainly taught to classes in schools throughout the rest of the year.
