The Vancouver Creative Technology Meetup is a group of people who use technology for creative expression. We gather monthly to share ideas, get inspired, and build our community. We're interested in learning about technology and art, finding inspiration and collaborators, and getting help and feedback on our projects.
This group originated as a Processing meetup established by Jesse Scott as part of the Processing Cities Project.
UPDATED: Looks like we have both a confirmed speaker and our location is locked.
Samm Cooper will be presenting Tales from Project "Cherry". Loopin', an interactive tool that Samm has been working on for a number of years, was field tested on a project in L.A., using 8 megapixels of infrared interactive particle systems. This will be an uncensored (children, cover your ears) account of the technical and creative challenges of making a project happen on the fly. Time permitting, there will be a bonus of anecdotes involving the oppulence of Hollywood and plenty of sweet code to look at! Bring your mobile device for an interactive demo.
We still have room for an additional speaker - so if you'd like to share or demo some of your latest creative tech experiments or aspirations, please come by and show us what you got!
After that, we'll open up the floor for anyone to come and share their work for 5-10 minutes each during TAD Talks.
I would like to see some familiar faces, as you know, this event depends on our community engagement.
Feel free to bring drinks or food!
