we just released version 1.0.3 of our introduction to programming book!

in this update we finally included a description and examples of the screen auto byte: an advanced feature of the screen device that makes it easier to draw multiple sprites with fewer instructions. we use it for the pong example on day 6!

we also updated the description of the file devices, and implemented some minor corrections.

hope you enjoy it!

we'll love to see you there!

hello world! we are exploring computation at a human scale, in pedagogical, performative and/or speculative ways :)

very glad to be here!

currently we are starting to develop the technique, a proposal for movement practice based on the computational transformation of sequences within a constrained vocabulary. this as part of a micro-residency in the fall phase of the conference.

recently we completed the tutorial that some of you might be aware of.

you can find about this and more in the web and in gemini:

* compudanzas.net/now.html
* gemini://compudanzas.net/now.g


We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
