Vera Molnar, programming and embroidery
No materials for the event yet, sorry!
Embroidery and computing have a long history, exemplified by the work of Vera Molnar. Her early work in 1946 developed embroidery algorithmicly without any recourse to computers. Subsequently she programmed designs when she had access to computing power in the 1960s. One particular design is explored in this lightning talk, in which Molnar at created an array of 4x4 arrays of pin, and then wound thread from pin to pin in random walks. A Turtlestitch version of this algorithm and artwork will be demonstrated.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!
We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...
Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...more
