For the first time, SFPC is opening a limited number of seats for auditing individual classes. Interested participants will be able to sit in on a full class, which spans two evenings, and meet other artists and creative technologists who are pushing boundaries, learning, teaching and taking their personal projects to new levels with the help of the SFPC community.
Our summer program is tailor made for writers and poets who want to learn to code or push the boundaries of what's possible with text -- it's also for coders and technologists who want to incorporate narrative and poetry into their work.
Lauren GWe encourage anyone who has been interested but unable to attend a full SFPC ten week or two week session to join us for these individual class sessions.
Taeyoon CWe appreciate your donation of $300 for attending each session over two evenings.The continued support from the community enables us to operate independently and focus on the students learning experience above anything else.
I'm a Sumi-e(Japanese traditional painting) artist based in Tokyo, Japan. While I hold a solo exhibition, I do some live drawing performances.
My work varies from traditional to contempolary style.
Recently I'm interested in computational approach to expand Sumi-e artwork and live performance.
Now I have some questions in my mind, "What differentiates an actual human drawing with our body from that of computers?" "Can we bring out new aspects of Sumi-e art and entertain people a lot more by using the concept and the power of computation?

How to document your projects and apply for grants and residencies? How to get paid? How to budget and expense your projects? How to work with large institutions and companies? How to start your own space and publication? This workshop will introduce alternative strategies of working as an independent artist and creative person.
Now that most of our reading is mediated by technology, it makes sense to develop a writing practice that recognizes, even takes advantage of that fact. By using code you control the readers attention -- where they dwell or skim -- and create an emotional scene on which text resides.Code can also generate the content of text, a practice that has spawned some excellent twitter bots and generated novels.
