Please come and learn the Way of the Patch in this four session workshop on one of the most powerful programs in our collection. Max/MSP/Jitter is a program which allows users to essentially design their own software for various purposes. Max excels in processing video in real time and is ideal in setting up interactive installations and giving performance work an extra bit of polish. In these hands-on courses, the basics of how to use this software will be demonstrated. Additionally, focus will be placed upon using the software for video processing, performance work, and interactive/installation settings, with examples of its past use to be discussed. All are welcome to attend, undergrads, grads, faculty, and staff.
