Lunch event: Art of programming

On Wednesday the 9th of December our member Noric Couderc will hold a lunch event/workshop to talk about the art of programming. This is a joint initiative of the Gender Equality Group and the Uppsala University ACM-W Student Chapter (UU ACM-W).

The event will last approximately two hours and will focus on two parts:  

First, how artists started including computers in their process, focusing on modern art and contemporary art. And how artists can also benefit from using computer programming as a medium of expression. Second, we will talk on how computer scientists and engineers can also benefit from doing art using programming.

Then there will be an interactive demonstration of the Processing framework, a programming framework that artists often use in their work, as it is easily accessible, even to those who do not have prior knowledge of programming, while not being too simplistic.

Where?  ITC room 2446

When?  Wednesday the 9th of December from 12:15 to 14:00 (Break at 13 for those who need to leave)
