TRANSFORMERS: A Code and Data-Driven Animation Screening

Organized by:
Darren Douglas Floyd, Artist/Filmmaker
Mat Rappaport, Artist, Columbia College Chicago
A. Bill Miller, Artist, University of Wisconsin, Whitewater

Computer programming is an often invisible force that affects many aspects of our contemporary lives. From how we gather our news, maintain our libraries, or navigate our built environment, code shapes the interfaces and information they connect to. Artists who work with these languages as material can critically excavate code and its effects. The works included in this screening include animation and video that are produced through the use and manipulation of code and/or data.

The selected works will be screened during CAA on Saturday, February 6th from 9:00am- 10:30am in the Media Lounge and is simultaneously available online through the New Media Caucus Vimeo Channel.
