In this workshop we will explore the sublime world of mathematics. The aim of this workshop will be to use code to create visual art. To achieve this, we will use the programming language GLSL to write shaders. Computer programming is a supremely elegant tool for designing imagery, as simple math formulas can be combined to create complex results. Whether you are a painter, game developer or filmmaker, coding can certainly be a valuable addition your toolbox.

Juca Aquino is a Brazilian-Canadian artist currently studying at the University of Manitoba. Juca's artistic practice is informed by Brazilian art and architecture like the Copacabana boardwalk, Ibirapuera Park and the skyscrapers on Paulista avenue. He first became interested in screenprinting when he saw Takashi Murakami's maximalist murals at a retrospective in the Vancouver Art Gallery. Juca became fascinated with using code as a tool for creating visual art when he noticed that unintended results caused by bugs in the code are often more compelling than the intended results. Juca has done volunteering work for the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Plug In ICA and Art City.
