THEATER: The School of Theater's New Works Festival (NWF) fosters opportunities for collaboration among all schools of the Institute and to celebrate the talent of CalArts students. This is a festival of the students, by the students and for the students, cultivating the growth of a collaborative, fun and creative atmosphere within the CalArts community, and allowing students the freedom to play and experiment with new work where the process is valued above the end result.
The Festival encourages interdisciplinary collaboration, explorative processes, and immersive risk-taking.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS: Scott Hutchinson and Pete Hawkes will conduct a design workshop with students at The Seoul Institute of the Arts via Telepresence.
CalArts students of all disciplines are welcome to join the workshop. Interested students are required to RSVP with Annie Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, ART, PHOTOGRAPHY, GRAPHIC DESIGN: New tools provide artists and designers added control over the inputs and outputs of interactive systems. Participants will work together in groups to connect a capacitive-sensing microcontroller, a webcam, and a simple Java program. The process will help them explore new ideas in physical interface and environmental reinterpretation using color, density, and texture.
This consumer-grade microcontroller connects everyday objects to computer interfaces. Any conductive material (fruit, play dough, water, graphite on paper) can serve as a trigger within a coded system.
Interactive interfaces rely more and more on live video feeds to gather information and sense changes in the environment.
This Java IDE was built specifically for artists and designers as a creative tool for learning and leveraging programming. Its intuitive interface will allow students to tinker with the logic behind the interactive system.
*No previous electronics experience is required but some camera knowledge is helpful. Basic electronics and basic coding is also helpful but again not required. One of the goals of the workshop is to introduce designers to electronics as a tool to add to their design process. Students need to bring a digital camera, webcam or phone camera and Mac laptop if available.
