Artful Integrators Award

"We welcome nominations for the tenth Artful Integrators Award, to be presented online or in person in Newcastle upon Tyne during PDC 2022. The Award is intended to recognize outstanding achievement in the area of participatory design of information and communications technologies. Where traditional design awards have gone to individual designers and singular objects, the Artful Integrators Award emphasizes the importance of collaborative participation in design, and a view of good design as the effective alignment of diverse collections of people, practices and artifacts."

a global live coding community gathering on International Women’s day!

Re-writing / Re-reading
Jon Reus & Varia

► Online Workshop ◂◂◂ 12th Mar ◆ 14h—17h UTC+1

How would you like an artificial reader to read? What kind of memory is preserved in an algorithm? What knowledge, thoughts, feelings would you want to be a part of such processes, and what previous 'machine learnings' could be refused?

In this workshop we will explore the potentials of hybrid algorithmic and collective reading through inventive practices of annotation. Starting from the written and spoken words of the artificial broadcaster in »In Search of Good Ancestors / Ahnen in Arbeit,« we will investigate how to understand and digest text generated by machine learning algorithms, and how such artificial writing can be read next to and together with new text of our own choosing.
