I’ve been running the inhabiting the hack project with Helen Thornham, Edgar Gómez Cruz and a range of arts practitioners and organisations, exploring alternative hackathons. Above is a photo of a group drawing exercise from the “Uncanny Valley” retreat in Burbage Valley with Lovebytes, and below is a video from the “Wrekshop” with Paul Granjon at Access Space. More to come!
Here’s a recording of a screencast sent to the IBC hackfest in Amsterdam as part of a TOPLAP extravaganza.
I gave the inaugural BSA Award Lecture for Digital Innovation at the British Science Festival in Bradford earlier this week. It’s a special honour because the award is given in the name of Daphne Oram, happily her niece came to the lecture, who told me she painted on the Oramics machine when she visited her Aunt. I was in too much of a pre-talk fluster to write down her name, sadly.
The talk itself was called “Live coding: creating languages for making music”. It wasn’t recorded, but here’s a nice interview which I think captures most of what I was trying to say very well.
