Want to make the moon follow you around on stage? Or mix music using coloured post-it notes? Generate live visuals through movement? Generate data from your webcam? Find out how in this Interactive Video workshop.

This is an introductory workshop for anyone interesting in making live video camera systems for interaction (colour / motion tracking) and generative design without having to code.

They’ll be using the software Isadora – popular in theatre, performance and art installation. Isadora has some really simple camera tracking tools, meaning that even with something as basic as a webcam, you can develop pretty sophisticated systems.

These can then be easily integrated with Isadora’s other tools such as projection mapping, video mixing, triggering sound, etc.

Overview of the session:

  • Isadora interface
  • setting up webcams and other cameras
  • tracking movement
