Transcoding Glass

Stout and Metcalf lead course at the Pilchuck Glass School

David Stout and Cory Metcalf (NoiseFold) lead a three week workshop intensive focused on the nature of digital transcoding techniques. Students created cinematic installations and performance pieces utilizing glass as an integral aesthetic element. Course activities included basic programming tutorials in MAX/MSP/Jitter, field recording, video and sound editing, projection experiments, hot-glass blowing, painting with enamels, and casting textural surfaces in combination with elements of performance design, staging and collaborative strategies for advancing new art forms that fuse emergent and traditional technologies.
