I’ll be showing works from the aphorisms series in a group show at the Wont Space in Long Beach.
Language is an evocative material with diverse forms used by artists and poets. Communicative actions, utterances, vocalizations and linguistic mark making are all used in these often separated disciplines. Through a diverse presentation of linguistic forms and generative approaches, the artwork, poetry and performances in this one-evening exhibition explores the problems, poetics, communicative qualities, physiological mechanisms and phenomena of language.

iPhone Workshop at Machine Project, Redux
Once again i’m teaching a workshop on programming for the iPhone using the iPhone SDK at Machine Project. The course is designed to be a good introduction to Xcode, Objective-C and making real-world applications for the AppStore. We won’t cover the basics of programming, so some programming experience is required. The workshop starts July 5th and meets 4 times. For more info check out the course page.

SoftWhere 2008: Software Studies Workshop @ UCSD
I’ll be participating in the SoftWhere Software Studies Workshop next week at UCSD. This is one of the first events in the US focused on the meaning and goals of the emerging discipline of Software Studies. Most of the workshop is closed, but there is a public PechaKucha style presentation on Wednesday, May 21st, from 12:30-5:00pm. From the description: “Software studies is a research field that examines software and cyberinfrastructure using approaches from humanities, cultural criticism, and social sciences. The public session will feature a rapid series of short presentations by key national and international figures in this emerging field… Attendees can expect a collage of diverse perspectives on what it means to live in software society and how to study it.” There are a lot of brilliant people involved and it proves to be a fun couple of days.

Form + Code : A workshop and lecture
Casey Reas and I are presenting Form + Code at Telic. It’s part lecture, part workshop, focusing on the relationship between code (computer programs) and visual form. The event is centered around six themes, Designing with Numbers, Repetition, Parameterization, Visualization, Transformation, and Simulation. Using these themes, we will discuss the history of procedural and algorithmic work using examples from architecture, visual design, and fine art. We will introduce the basics of computer programming with particular emphasis on creating software for screen, print, and 3D-fabrication. Each participant will have the opportunity to work with sample programs relevant to each of the six themes.More info at telic.info
