The BMO Lab for Creative Research in the Arts, Performance, Emerging Technologies and Artificial Intelligence is very pleased to present two events with internationally renowned artist Kyle McDonald.
Workshop: Saturday February 29th, 1-4 pm
Artist’s Talk / Lecture: Monday March 2, 4:30-6 pm
Kyle McDonald is an artist working with code. He crafts interactive installations, performances, sneaky interventions, playful websites, workshops, and toolkits for other artists working with code. He explores the possibilities of new technologies: to understand how they affect society, to misuse them, and build alternative futures. He works with machine learning, computer vision, social and surveillance tech. He has been an adjunct professor at NYU's ITP, a member of F. A.T. Lab (Free Art and Technology), community manager for openFrameworks, and artist in residence at STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at CMU, and YCAM in Japan. His work has been commissioned and shown around the world, including: the V & A (London), NTT ICC (Tokyo), Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria), Sonar (Barcelona), Today's Art (The Hague), and Eyebeam (NYC).
On Monday March 2, at 4:30, he will be presenting an artist talk focusing on his work using AI / Machine Learning in the context of performance.
He will be leading a workshop on February 29th from 1-4 introducing participants to using the open-source web-based programming environment p5.js for creating interactive systems using computer vision and machine learning.
Both events are happening at the BMO Lab in the Koffler building at 214 College Street. (Access via the doors on St. George, just north of College Street. Come to the 3rd floor, and go through the door on the left. Follow the hallway to the BMO Lab).
