Registration is available here, register now before it's too late!
About the event
Although we have "gen art" in our name, participants are not limited to generative art alone. This is about visual imagery, viewed and shared online. We're inspired by work like Medusae, the Zen Photon Garden, or A Particle Dream.
We encourage experimentation, iteration and openness. In the spirit of collaboration, your work will be projected on the walls throughout the event. Steal from each other. We encourage it!
GenArtHackParty is inclusive. Although some experience programming will be an advantage, we welcome participants at all levels. We've had two of the audience choice projects come from people who wrote their first ever line of code at the GenArtHackParty
We will have workshops the evening before the event: beginners will learn p5.js, experienced coders will learn how to build GLSL shaders like these. Then, on Saturday we hack all day until our opening party in the evening.
