Collaboration between developers and artists from different disciplines
often results in merged media or new media formats. 'Media Knitting' is a
three-day hands-on workshop for artists, engineers, and designers working
with software to knit various media formats and applications together for
live or real-time interactive performances. The scope of the media used for
collaboration in 'Media Knitting' will include video, streaming media,
audio and 3D modelling. In this workshop thirty participants can work
together to discover and patch each other's disciplines together by means
of software and human interaction. Several experts will be brought in from
the commercial software field for Mac and Windows as well as from the field
of open source and free software. Among the software facilitated for this
workshop are Max-MSp, Jitter, V2_Jam, PD, Blender, Cyclops, BigEye,
gstreamer, Nato, MoB, FreeJ and Touch 101.

The participants and the workshop leaders will work together to realize
performances or media jam sessions. The end result of the workshop will be
presented in an informal media concert open to the audience of the Dutch
Electronic Art Festival 2003 (DEAF03).

Workshop leaders: Amy Franceschini (USA) and Guy van Belle (B).

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop and software.
