Since beginning 2013 Liebig12 has been collaborating with James Cui (VJFader), presenting a series of workshops.
James Cui (Fader) is a visual artist who works with multimedia in a variety of disciplines.From video mapping, generative animation, music videos, stage design to art installations, his work has been shown to broad audiences around the world.He has exhibited at numerous festivals such as Coachella (Indio), Burningman (Black Rock City), Insomniac Events (Los Angeles) and the Mapping Festival (Geneva).
He received a degree in Animation from the Art Center in Pasadena California and went on to teach himself how to write programing code for his audio/video performances.
He founded the Neuromixer VJ software company in 2004 which features video software and innovative prototypes like faderTouch. He continues to exhibit internationally, expanding his techniques and finding new applications.more under:www.vjfader.com
is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.
It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
The students will be given step by step instructions on how to program and upload code to the Arduino Uno board, connect LED lights and control it using sliders and switches.
No previous programming or soldering experience is necessary, Mac or PC users are welcome.
