Dr. Woohoo will be at the Santa Fe Complex on Wednesday, May 6th at 11:30am for a show-n-tell session exploring how he – and you – can generate artwork by hacking into Illustrator, Photoshop and Maya via code. As the result of some early mash-ups within Illustrator, Woohoo was invited to work behind the scenes at Adobe, kicking the tires on a series of tools that simplified and enhanced the process of driving the Creative Suite from Flash based content. Based on this experience, Woohoo will explore how he connects the dots between ExtendScripts, Adobe AIR applications and Flash plug-ins to Illustrator and Photoshop in order to redefine what is creatively possible. In addition, inspired by the openFrameworks (OF) workshop he attended at Golan Levin’s Art and Code Symposium at Carnegie Mellon, Woohoo will also connect the dots between OF & Maya, along with a few other surprises.
Tutorials on how-to connect the dots between these toolkits and applications will be distributed to participants.
For a preview of Woohoo’s recent work, here are a couple of videos from his recent show-n-tell session(s) at FITC and here.
