Shiffman, an assistant arts professor at the Interactive Telecommunications program at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, will speak about his work with processing and computer media. He will also demonstrate the "most pixels ever" library, which his students use to create software for a 120-foot-wide video wall while previewing his upcoming book, "The Nature of Code." The book, which was self-published via the fundraising website Kickstarter.com , discusses the simulation of natural phenomena in processing.
The lecture is scheduled for Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is co-sponsored by the Neuberger Museum and Purchase College's new media board of study. Admission will be free.
