Code Poetry

Tag : Workshop

Wednesday, 17 February | 16.00–20.00
online workshop, organized by Ljudmila Art-Science Laboratory, Lubjiana, Slovenia

Code is a form of written expression like poetry is. There is an intention behind every line of code. It functions on the intersection of human and machine interaction. It has to be executed by a machine but is also meant to be read by another human. A specific task can be written in different languages and in different ways. Code is thus always a subjective form of communication, saturated with the personality and style of its writer. At the workshop, participants compared lines of code with poetry, get familiar with the genre “Code Poetry”, try to interpret it and write our own code poems. This workshop was open for people who never wrote a line of code as well as for programmers who want to experiment with the language they are using on an every-day basis!
