Collaboration between developers and artists from different disciplines often results in merged media or new media formats. Media Knitting is a three-day hands-on workshop for artists, engineers, and designers working with software to knit various media formats and applications together for live or real-time interactive performances. The scope of the media used for collaboration in Media Knitting will include video, streaming media, audio and 3D modelling. In this workshop thirty participants will work together to discover and patch each other’s domains together by means of software and human interaction. Several experts will be brought in from the commercial software field for Mac and Windows as well as from the field of ‘open source’ and ‘free software’. Among the software facilitated for this workshop are Max-MSp, Jitter, V2_Jam, PD, Blender, Cyclops, BigEye, gstreamer, Nato, MoB, FreeJ and Touch 101. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop and software as well. The participants and the workshop leaders will work together on the realization of performances or media jam sessions. The end result of the workshop will be presented in an informal media concert open to the DEAF audience.
On the last day, there was a public demonstration.
