Drawing in Python
This workshop will focus on the basics of using TouchDesigner’s Script SOP to create geometry programmatically, beginning simply with the creation of points and lines, building out some useful and reusable abstractions, and eventually creating interesting structures and patterns, all with an eye to creating vector artwork for printing on pen plotters like the Axidraw or Makeblock.
Noah Norman is a technical director and artist and Chief at Hard Work Party. He came to TouchDesigner as a primary tool for realizing visual works roughly two years ago, having lost his hairline to Jitter. Aesthetically, he’s torn between honest, lo-fi approaches and AAA game-style post-processing gimmicks.
