Corey Schneider is an Australian multimedia artist and programmer, currently residing in Berlin. Schneider works on the software team at WHITEvoid where he uses TouchDesigner every day in the ongoing development of control software for kinetic light installations.
Schneider’s creative practice began with music. He studied audio engineering at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and performed often in Melbourne, initially playing drums and later experimenting with live electronic music, DJing, VJing. Eventually he began practicing in the field of technical production for independent films, audiovisual performances, and interactive installation art.
Jakob Povel is a graphic designer by profession and a nerd at heart. Since discovering a way to integrate real-time graphics into his design concepts, he has left the standard graphic design tools, which he had been using for over a decade, behind.
It all began with a batch script game he made that showed him the power of programming.
From there he took a leap using various techniques that suited the task, from writing macros in AutoHotkey to using TensorFlow to create art. After discovering TouchDesigner while researching how to connect the Kinect he was able to present his VR experience Structure at the TouchDesigner Summit in Berlin in 2018. This was the first TouchDesigner project he made, but definitely will not be the last.
350 TouchDesigneurs coming from all the corners of the world.
The Summit takes place on the beautiful and spacious Couer des Sciences / UQAM campus in Montreal centre-ville very close to Place des Arts. We will be occupying several spaces in the campus, but the main entrance and registration will be in the “Chaufferie” building which will also act as the ‘lab’ or community space. Please see attached map for access routes.
