I am teaching another course at Arcanorium College, from June 6 to July 16, that will show you how to program a computer to draw a three-dimensional sigil of any word that you input into it — example below. You will learn how to change the sigil’s color, view it from any position, animate it, and save it as an image or video file that you can then use in ritual performance.
The course will introduce you to the Processing programming language developed for artists and designers. Processing may be used to generate an unlimited variety of visual or musical sigils or other magical devices (here is another example). Each week will expand on what was learned the week before, and the lessons will be presented so that anyone can come back to them and continue to learn from them. The skills you learn will be applicable to several contemporary projects in multimedia magic that we will explore in future courses at Arcanorium.
The six-week syllabus will include:
- Introduction to Processing
- Drawing and animating 2D and 3D images
- Interacting with the images through a custom graphical user interface (GUI)
- Saving images and videos
The course is available to all Arcanorium students. Registration fees for the College are UK£60 for 12 months or UK£20 for 3 months, which include all classes (~2 every 6 to 8 weeks).
