The Google Data Arts Team is a small group of creative programmers from San Francisco who use open web technologies and Google tools to make creative projects for the web. Some recent projects include Three Dreams of Black, the WebGL Globe, and the Data Viz Challenge (built in close partnership with Eyebeam).

On Monday, July 18, the team is putting on a workshop looking at JavaScript, HTML5 and WebGL as applied to user interfaces, data visualization, and interactive art. There will be an introduction to one of the team's JavaScript libraries (dat.gui) and projects (WebGL Globe), as well as time for project experimentation and personal Q&A. Please bring your laptop, your creativity, and your favorite IDE. Familiarity with web development and JavaScript highly recommended.

“Designing for Participation” is a 3-hour intensive workshop set on Taeyoon Choi's exhibition and platform for experimental engagement INVISIBLE____ located in Eyebeam's Project Space.

The workshop is lead by Taeyoon Choi, Eyebeam Fellow and upcoming Creators Project Creator, who will share his experiences creating site-specific urban intervention and research-based performance, which often use technology in unconventional ways. Choi will explain methods to use, misuse and sometimes abuse consumer technology (such as mobile phones and CCTV) and services (such as Wikipedia and Twitter) to create highly participatory experiences through D.I.Y. low-tech hacking and strategic interruption.

In today’s participatory culture, users are rarely content with playing a passive role. Instead, we look for opportunities to respond, remix, re-interpret and in some way impact our surrounding environment, as well as the experiences housed within it.

But how does one plan and design for participation? Whether it’s for the purposes of a product, an interactive art installation, civic engagement, or a collaborative project, designers need to consider the kind of participatory experiences they want to elicit and how they might attempt to tap into their user’s internal motivations.

In this panel, Tom Igoe, Taeyoon Choi, & Paola Antonelli will discuss the methods, theories and applications of designing for participation.
