Dive into the possibilities of the computer’s extraordinary feats in our digital age. This workshop is ideal for students looking to expand their control animations and processing skills as well as those wanting to use creative coding exported to a CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) routing machine. Participants work with Sublime Text 3 to edit code and HYPE Framework. Throughout the week, efficient production techniques are explored.

Media & Techniques:

Students use Sublime Text 3, a sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose. Workshop participants also use HYPE Framework, a collection of classes that perform heavy lifting tasks while using a minimal amount of code writing.


The faculty presents multiple methods to speed up production while students participate in hands-on exercises and receive extensive one-on-one help. The final project is a vector-based composition that is sent to a CNC routing machine and etched onto an 110 x 140 wood panel.
