Hear ye, hear ye, an update!

At the beginning of the 21st century, the superhero has found her technology-based counterpart in a transhumanism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transhumanism) that sees itself as an international, cultural and intellectual movement with the goal to improve human nature through the use of technology. The targeted life-form is the human machine, the cyborg, as a utopia of evolutionary and biologial technology through the fusion of body and technological prosthesis using techniques such as bio-hacking, body-modification and mind control.

This Saturday, Open Tech School invites Cyborg e.V (http://cyborgs.cc/)., c-base (https://c-base.org/) and the art project earlyhumanadapter (https://earlyhumanadapter.wordpress.com/) to work collaboratively with the attendees of the Creative Code Jam under the topic of "Transhuman".

****

The Creative Code Jam is a monthly collaborative computational art event. It is free and open to all, regardless of age, gender, or previous experience. Please read the following description before you join! You will enjoy it more.

What is this event?
A relaxed (but intense) prototyping day. Participants are invited to form teams, improvise and create something together in a limited time. Asking questions throughout the day is encouraged!

What is Creative Coding?
Creative coding is the art of expressing oneself through the medium of computation. Creative coders often use tools like Processing, OpenFrameworks, Cinder, etc.

Who is this event for?
Artists (New Media or otherwise), technologists, designers, makers, and code enthusiasts of all kinds. If you are creative and like a bit of challenge, this one is for you.

What this event is not.
The Creative Code Jam is not a lesson, a contest or a conference.

What should I bring?
Bring your computer or other computational weapon of choice. Interesting books for inspiration, fancy hardware, quirky materials and snacks to share are also always a good idea :)
