Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

When people think about communicating data they often gravitate towards graphics and interactive visualizations, thinking that these are the only options. But why stop at the sense of sight?!? There are many other methods of perception (each with its own strengths and weaknesses) that can be used to enhance and augment our ability to present data. In this workshop, you break past the limits of the eye and explore alternative methods of visualizing data. See the tools, theory, and techniques of sonifying data (as well as little history of how we got to where we are today) for both creative and informational uses. Learn how to trigger sounds based on data and user interaction, modulate audio (pitch, tempo, etc.) according to numeric values, and "play" a CSV using p5.js (with a little D3.js thrown in).

Basic programming experience (ideally with Javascript) is necessary, but experience with p5.js or D3.js is not required.

** If you successfully register for this workshop, please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Those not in attendance 5-minutes before the session begins, may forfeit their spot to the next person on the waitlist.
