Drugo more, in collaboration with Bad Co., is pleased to present Zeichner software workshop. You are welcome to join us on Friday, November 14 at 2 pm with Goran Sergej Pristaš who will facilitate the workshop.

fb_g_dm_refleks_bad_co_zeichnerZeichner software is a computer program that transforms real time live video material into a graphic animation. Bodies and objects that move in front of the camera show on images as ever changing shades and shapes. Our motion seems slowed down and stretched, which can prove hypnotic at times, and make you feel weightless and with zero gravity.

This is why Zeichner interface is attractive to users who start moving immediately upon seeing themselves in front of the screen. They start an interplay and begin choreographing and mastering the language of movement of bodies and shapes in space. They write as they move, to put it simply.

Zeichner software author is Daniel Turing, as his bio suggests, born in 1976, lives and works in Weimar and wherever there’s electricity. He ponders questions of surveillance, privacy and aesthetics that arise with the interplay of humans and computers. His output consists mostly of (open-source) software, occasionally interspersed with interactive installations or endeavours into more traditional media.

The workshop will be divided into:

PART ONE Getting to know the tool 2 pm – 4 pm
PART TWO Problem solving 4.30 pm – 6.30 pm

The workshop is free, and you only need to RSVP to: katarina [at] drugo-more.hr
