Day 10: (Thu Sep 29, Week 5) Phase Two: Physical¶
Notes for 2022-09-29.
Current assignment, due Tuesday: Exercise: Simulation Duo.
Is everyone qualified for the IDeATe laser cutters?
Rough plan leading up to Fall Break:
Tue Oct 4, Week 6
demo the duo live simulation performances
Thu Oct 6, Week 6
brainstorm final show projects
Tue Oct 11, Week 7
demo the physical performance exercise
Thu Oct 13, Week 7
settle project pairs and tentative show plan
Discuss short-term course plan.
Quick overview of physical resources.
Tools shape the art; which will fit your concept?
Brief tour of HL A10A.
Short look at Shutterbox code from Tuesday
