This workshop is presented as part of the 'Making Patterns' exhibit showing at 117 Beekman Street.
Learn how to create generative clothing patterns with open source software! The instructors will provide a conceptual introduction to generative and parametric clothing design, as well as basic programming techniques. Students will use the Kinect with custom measuring software to quickly determine a person’s measurements, and export them to Processing, wherein they will “draft” clothing patterns using the included software, acquiring basic visual programming concepts along the way.
The workshop is based on Open Fit, a generative clothing workflow created by Lisa Kori Chung and Kyle McDonald. The workshop will be structured to accommodate all programming skill levels, and all levels of fashion or pattern making experience.
The Remembrancer, a newspaper named for the City of London's representative to the UK government, documents 46 corporations listed on the London Stock Exchange, which are known to the database of A Quiet Disposition, and are, by association, implicated by the data it has gathered. The Remembrancer was commissioned by the Open Data Institute and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
ABSML is a new markup language that enables the creation of complex sentence formulas for 21st century automatic writing. ABSML tags replace parts of speech and sentence components using sophisticated semantic analysis, regular expressions, and web-based resources. In the right combination, the tags create prose that -- while based on formulas and code -- do not appear formulaic. ABSML is free and open for others to use, both through an online editor and an API (application programming interface).
