Marc will propose to his group a special type of workshop in a two steps process:

# First to be part of the assembly process for an installation by THEVERYMANY™ for the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The piece will be assembled at the Centre** and will give a chance for the students to experience the process &  logistic involved around the physical production of complex morphologies resulting from the development of highly custom protocols of descriptive geometry (written in Python / Rhcommon).

# Then will initiate the students to text based protocols/scripting (RhinoPython/Rhinoscript) – and investigate a similar design approach then the installation through applied exercises on the human morphology and study multiple ways to describe it…

Looking forward…

** in order to be able to enter the closed floor of the Centre each students will need to be personally insured with “responsabilite civile” and to sign a discharge.

Material Resonance | August 09-12, 2010

St. Louis | Washington University | Sam Fox School of Art and Design

Material Resonance will be a four day, intensive workshop focused on practical application of Rhinoscripting or Grasshopper.  The workshop will also train participants in CNC fabrication using MasterCAM and the Washington University DIL fabrication lab.  There will also be demos of the new plug-ins Firefly and Kangaroo. 
The workshop is meant for professionals or students with a working knowledge in Rhinoceros.  Prior experience with Grasshopper or Rhino VB scripting is not necessary.  The workshop will start from first principles and cover topics from tessellation, components and connections to part organization, nesting and labeling.
