do it yourself

DIY is one of the sections where we share information. If you have a special bit of knowledge in any topic related to art or computers, please help us grow this section by contributing.

Currently all of the documents in this section are handouts from P.K. Steffen's lectures which are based on the Mac platform. However, almost all the software in the demos is cross platform and the differences between platforms has become far less significant. We hope that you find them of use.

Please Note: All materials are © copyright 2001 P.K. Steffen and the artists of Super Cooperative.
