With the support of Near Now Fellowship artists Above&Below, this workshop introduces visual development platform TouchDesigner to beginners. Through DIY learning, participants will be introduced to the process of creating projection artworks in public spaces, which use different tools deriving from TouchDesigner.

Collaboratively we will explore real-time visual systems through a variety of inputs including tracking, depth mapping and IR cameras. This will be introduced through using tools such as Microsoft’s Kinect and Leap Motion controller. The outcome will be an interactive projection artwork.



Please bring your own PC or Mac laptop with TouchDesigner installed. A free download for non-commercial use is available from

This workshop is part of Generating Systems, presented by Near Now Studio member Matt Woodham: a series of six creative, DIY workshops over two days, led by expert artists and toolmakers.

Participants will learn a cross-section of cutting-edge techniques to create generative and computational artworks. You will learn to use specially designed software and hardware systems to create live, real-time video, interactive installations and generative art – utilising technologies such as virtual reality, machine learning and analogue devices.

These events accompany Sensing Systems, Matt Woodham's debut solo exhibition which takes place at Bonington Gallery in Feb–March 2020.
