TouchDesigner is one of the most powerful node-based visual programming languages. It's been used by artists, programmers, creative coders, software designers, and performers to create real-time audiovisual performances, light installations, architectural projections, projection mapping, and fixed media works.

Throughout the course of three sessions, we will explore the basic concepts of generative visual creation and learn how to set up a project in TouchDesigner. The aim is to explore diverse modern technologies, art practices, and materials that encourage participants to discover their own creative solutions and develop novel projects.Anyone of any skill level and all suggestions and questions are highly welcomed.
