CCU Workshop - Poetry Together: Embodied Poetry with Machine Learning

Please note: This is a sign up form. We will review your application and send you a confirmation and ticket link in the week of August 15th. Your participation is not official without a ticket.

Join us in this half day workshop, where we make movement based poetry with friends. Recently, poetry has become entwined with modern technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. Computers can now help us create beautiful and funny poetry. In this workshop, we will explore how to create simple poems and visual compositions with machine learning through body tracking. How will your body influence the poem?

First, you will be introduced to p5.js and basic coding structures. Then, we will dive into the usage of artificial intelligence in the arts and introduce you to Teachable Machines and Posenet. After this, it is time to get creative! You will have all the tools to work on your own artwork - in groups or individually.

👩‍💻 About Computational Mama

The workshop is led by Computational Mama. She has been learning and experimenting with creative coding since 2017. As a creative technologist, her work explores coding as a form of self-care and learning. She is a livestreamer on Twitch, where she teaches the basics of creative computation and new approaches to computational thinking. Her streaming series Coding with Friends is rooted in creating inclusive spaces for womxn makers to explore creative computation. She works heavily with generative texts, AI models for text, computer vision and some simpler machine learning tools.
