Hello Lurkers, it’s time for a brief #introduction. I am raphaël, born in montpellier, studied art in brussels, living in paris. I usually write small systems with code or physical objects, that eventually become instruments, tools, or less functional things. I love cooking without cookbooks and I usually write code the same way. I am a free software user and enthusiast. I teach art and design in various schools and during workshops. I am part of @velvetyne and prepostprint.org. I am currently (04/2021) focused on #sound and #CSS as a #livecoding language, and I still maintain lots of tiny tools that I should list somewhere at some point. Procrastination is part of my creative process and I kind of handle it now. I have a post-punk band called zone and a debian computer called jardin.
I discovered it in Brussels ~ 2011, and it was kind of an emotional shock. I would love to attend another performance soon.
I am looking for a quote saying more or less “Each medium comes with imperfections that make its technical signature, being later mimicked.” Does it ring a bell to someone? #m
I just received this wonderful tome edited by Demian Conrad, Rob van Leijsen and David Héritier, designed by Johnson/Kingston and published by Onomatopee. "Graphic Design in the Post-Digital Age" includes the work of so many friends and practitioners that I admire as well as some amusing AI-generated commentary.
Should designers learn to code? This is the vexed question I wanted to tackle in my essay, but instead of giving yet another trite answer, I decided to focus on the bigger picture. To understand the "code imperative" one has to look at laid off coal miners in New Hampshire, woke journalists and their detractors, fictional ex-ballerinas working in cyber, IBM "new collars", AI pair programmers, etc.
In the essay I distinguish two paradigms: Learn to Code and Code To Learn. If the former is presented as an economic destiny for society as a whole, the latter has to do with gaining autonomy and technological self-determination – it means learning *with* computers and *through* computers. While both paradigms are real and useful, they lead to radically different ways of approaching creative coding as a practice and as a teaching subject.
Get the book here, DM me for the essay: https://www.onomatopee.net/exhibition/graphic-design-in-the-post-digital-age/#publication_17318
J'avais dit que j'en reparlerais ici quand le temps serait venu.
Ma compagne et moi avons monté une maison d'édition. Nous travaillons dessus depuis 2019. Notre premier livre vient tout juste de sortir.
