The aim of the workshop is to use different algorithms and techniques to create machines which create art works.
No specific skills are required. The workshop will start with basic coding examples, after that inspirational artworks will be discussed and similar projects will be created. Through the end of the workshop, some physical tools and examples will be realized.
You can see some examples as the outcome of the workshop.
