M & I taught our first Materializing Interactive Research workshop at UC Santa Cruz in the Digital Arts Research Center. We covered an intro to TouchDesigner, and delve into some advanced rendering techniques. In the photo below, M is teaching fundamentals to instancing before we jumped into to some fun audio reactivity.
