(via Crossings – YouTube) My son, @dboyfajardo, recorded my conversation with curator, Jeffrey Lambson, about the work currently on display at the Emmanuel Gallery in Denver. I share it here as a 21minute long #gpoy 😉 (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)

When artists use new technologies as their materials, a number of things happen: 1. They discover ways to extend the expressive and communicative range of tools, devices and systems 2. By making connections that are neither necessarily utilitarian nor profitable, they explore potential for diverse human interest and experience 3. They do the cognitive work […]

The Untold History of Arduino

The Untold History of Arduino It’s complicated…

Most learn-to-code initiatives do not support this type of creative expression. In many introductory coding activities, students are asked to program the movements of a virtual character navigating through a set of obstacles toward a goal. This approach can help students learn some basic coding concepts, but it doesn’t allow them to express themselves creatively — or […]

Hopscotch liked my tweet code drawing 124 got some love from Hopscotch on Twitter today. this hasn’t translated into that drawing being featured, yet.

Finally, if the question is ‘do artists need to read such-and-such’ type of literature, the answer is definitely ‘no.’ You never know where ideas come from. I believe in chaos for answers. And the most important thing today, when our tastes are calculated by algorithms, is to find things that you are not looking for. […]

Hopscotch for Code Drawings

Hopscotch is an iOS app for iPads designed as a coding environment that can facilitate learning through tinkering by young ones. It takes a great deal of inspiration from Scratch. I’ve begun to explore its capabilities and limitations. The first series of “code drawings” – drawings made with code as medium – were explored with […]
