George Platts, Gamesmaster
Tutorial number: GP1
Computer science, especially software design, interacts with the arts and other life experiences; mathematics and music are closely linked. Since 1993 I have been exploring artists' patterns with the patterns community at PLoP conferences in USA, Germany, Scandinavia and Japan. This interactive tutorial at OOPSLA, will offer an opportunity for delegates to share such inspirational moments. On my part, I will be exhibiting a wealth of cross-arts' material that has excited PLoP computer scientists since 1993; artists' movies and film from France, Canada and USA; unusual music from Australia, Egypt, The Netherlands and USA.
This tutorial is in conjunction with the Onward! track of OOPSLA 2005.
Beginner: Interest and an open mind is all that is needed.
