DECIPHERING RANDOMNESS – creative hacking and coding workshop


Generating random numbers is not easy. People are extremely bad at generating random sequences. People behave in a mechanic and repetitive manner. Human brain aims to conceive reality within periodic sequences and patterns.

 

During the workshop the participants will learn:

 
practical application of pseudo­random generators for constructing visual works, music compositions and films with the use of languages such as Pure Data, Supercollider, LISP, Fluxus, Ianix etc. (automata, monte carlo method, random walks, Markov processes, pseudo­random generators, probability distributions and others)
 
extraction of randomness from a physical processes through hacking analogue devices for detection and amplification of electromagnetic fields (ultrawaves, infra, microwave etc.), gas particles, photons and decay of radioactive materials (alpha, beta, gamma) and complex random brain processes
 
mapping of random streams output to parameters of sound devices, DMX light beams, video and 3D projections
