Still need more reasons to come to FITC Toronto? See what Dr. Woohoo is thinking about our upcoming event.

Dr Woohoo says:

"I love how unpredictable life can be. I woke up one morning in March and found myself on a plane flying out to meet with Golan Levin – who orchestrated the art and code symposium at Carnegie Mellon – in order to show people how to hijack Photoshop and Illustrator from code and Flash.

While I was there, I finally gave in to the gravitational pull of openFrameworks (OF) – a c++ library for creative coding – which I had deliberately avoided for too long in the same way I avoid video games. You see, I know my weaknesses. If I get to near them, they suck me in. lol.

On a sunny afternoon sitting in classroom, as the breeze blew large black curtains around, I attended a workshop on OF given by Zach Lieberman, Theo Watson and Arturo Castro. Simply put, it was awe-inspiring. that was a moment where I can honestly say the course of my creative life changed.

With that said, I look forward to seeing Golan Levin and Zach Lieberman's Art, Gesture, Computation, Framework presentation at FITC Toronto 2009. In addition I'm intrigued by Camille Utterback's Responding to Bodies: My Work is Watching You. I know Mario Klingemann's presentations are always incredible, so i look forward to seeing his latest magic in The Tinkerer's Box. it goes without saying that Joshua Davis will be as entertaining as hell and I look forward to seeing Daniel Schutzsmith's marketing your skillz."
