friendly reminder that this sunday we'll be guiding an online workshop introducing programming! :workstation:

Babycastles Academy: Intro to Uxn Programming
sunday, november 21, 12021, from 3 to 5pm UTC-5 (EST)

hope to see you there!

intro to qiudanz technique mode 1!

this introductory video demonstrates the principles of technique mode 1 so that you can learn and practice it complementing the written notes and live workshops.

this is part of our microresidency at the fall gathering of

dancers: mel* and @sejo
music: io - @dominicloretti

found this peculiar recording of la consagración de la computadora (the rite of computing, 2019).

the rite of computing is a ceremony, a collaboration and celebration between human and non-human elements: a slow, sweaty, organic, locally-grown, inefficient, danced, turing-complete, computational machine; performing a potentially endless process of life.

the video, showing the process of an almost-complete cycle of the universal turing machine we were becoming during 56 minutes, is sped up 40x :)

la pasamos muy bien en el miniworkshop de de hoy! <3
gracias @franco por acompañarnos!


[EN] tonight we had a great time in our qiudanz miniworkshop!

suddenly, the intro to #uxn programming online workshop is around the corner! :babycastles:

Babycastles Academy: Intro to Uxn Programming :tealheart:
Next Sunday, November 21, 12021, at 3pm UTC-5 (EST)

i wonder who has registered already :)

we now have a peertube channel for these videos: @qiudanz

thanks @sean for the space! <3

a demo video of a game we played in our first online miniworkshop!

each person performs a movement sequence that arises from applying a valid operation to the sequence performed by the previous one.

we had our first miniworkshop today and we had a lot of fun! it was great to see and feel the idea coming to life :)

you can still register for the next ones - no previous dancing or computing experience needed :think_starry_eyes:

I just bought a ticket for @sejo 's UXN workshop on november 21! I can't wait to try out assembly and UXN, I feel it's gonna hurt my JavaScript butt. :tealheart:

we are organizing some miniworkshops in order to start playtesting, learning and practicing the technique!

you can register over here:

we'll have four of them, so we hope you can join us in at least one! :)

[EN] fall phase timetable has been published!

we are going to talk about our microresidency on december 3rd, 2021 @ 14:00 hrs ET (UTC-5)


[ES] publicaron el calendario de eventos de la fase de otoño de !
hablaremos sobre nuestra microresidencia el 3 de diciembre de 2021 a las 14:00 horas ET (UTC-5)

[EN] during our micro-residency in we are developing activities and games to learn and practice the technique: a movement practice based on the computational transformation of movement sequences.

its purpose is to create and share dances inspired on abstract computational machines. it is part of a commitment to preserve computer science beyond electronics and industrial civilization.

in the following days we'll be organizing some online workshops to experiment with the technique: would you like to join us? let us know!


[ES] durante nuestra micro-residencia en nos encontramos desarollando unas actividades/juegos para aprender y practicar la qiudanz technique: una práctica de movimiento basada en la transformación computacional de secuencias de movimiento.

su propósito es crear y compartir danzas inspiradas en máquinas computacionales abstractas. esto como parte de un compromiso por preservar a las ciencias computacionales más allá de la electrónica y la civilización industrial.

en los próximos días estaremos organizando unos workshops en línea para experimentar con la técnica, ¿te interesa participar?

Here's a longish academic article I recently finished. It has more stuff on the #demoscene than #permacomputing, although it also includes some permacomputingish visions for the future.
Digital esthetics, environmental change and the subcultures of computer art

Digital esthetics, environmental change and the subcultures of computer art

> If new tricks can be extracted from computers that are several decades old, why does the mainstream think that technological progress requires constant hardware upgrades?

great article by @viznut :geordi_like:

exciting news! we are teaching a online workshop! <3
