Registration deadline: 21st September. Please, send your details to

    The Tresnak::Tools workshops are introductory sessions on approaching the new technologies for their subsequent application in the creative and artistic arena.  These workshops will provide brief introductions to different software and hardware tools. This session will provide an introduction to generative art.
    Generative art is an audiovisual field that links the image and audio synthesis, interaction, logic programming and chance. Its use is spreading to audiovisual performance, interactive and multimedia installations, architecture video-mapping and dramatic arts. The structure design and its deployment on the time line come into play, along with the elements that we wish to use to modify that structure, which may be the interaction of the audience using cameras, behaviour patterns, or chance itself.
    The course seeks to provide the necessary tools and know-how to create audiovisual environments that evolve autonomously. The course will cover the audio-image relationship, the different types of behaviour on the time line, and the logic pattern design, to construct examples of generative art that can continue to be subsequently developed and integrated in their personal work.
    Adrián Cuervo graduated in Fine Arts and is an artist and researcher in new technologies applied to audiovisual performance. He is a specialist in controlling the projected image through gestural interfaces. He has exhibited his work and performed in different art centres and international visual art festivals, and won different new technologies and art awards. He is the co-founder of the Unstable Society and Mademotion collectives in Madrid.
