The web platform offers unprecedented opportunities for artists, it’s a studio, canvas and gallery all at the same time. This series embraces play and experimentation as core learning ethics, it takes material traditionally geared towards developers and frames them for critically minded artists, in the hopes of introducing diverse and unconventional thinkers into the web development community.
1:16 u can read more about Ada Lovelace on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ada_Lov... if u’re interested in learning more check out Sydney Padua’s comic “The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage” (2015), i’ve read a lot on both Lovelace && Babbage, this comic is by far the most interesting + xciting account, better researched than even some of the more “academic” texts i’ve read: http://sydneypadua.com/2dgoggles/the-...
2:00 this clip is from the beginning of “The Artist and the Computer” (1974) a documentary on Lillian Schwartz, definitely worth watching the whole thing.
4:40 this quote comes from the book “The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood” (2011) by James Gleick, it’s a pretty epic book, not a quick read but well worth it. It’s a comprehensive history on the beginnings of our information age.
5:12 this quote comes from “Program or be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age” (2010) by Douglas Rushkoff, this is essential reading for anyone critically thinking about what agency means in the digital age, it’s a quick read, well worth it.
6:12 this analogy ( && this notion that our technologies are symptomatic of our world views ) is adapted from “The Question Concerning Technology” (1954) by influential German philosopher Martin Heidegger
6:56 Marshall McLuhan is by far one of the most important media theorists of the last century && his ideas are still super relevant ( check out his books “Understanding Media” && “The Medium is the Masssage” ). This clip comes from a 1977 lecture he gave in Australia, full video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImaH5...
7:34 this quote comes from “Close To the Machine: Technophilia and its Discontents” (1997) by Ellen Ullman. This is an amazing book, Ullman’s memoirs as a computer programmer, pretty fantastic + critical meditation on what it was like to be shaping the world w/code at that time.
8:32 this clip comes from a 1997 interview w/Steve Jobs ( for context, that’s after Apple let him go, towards the end of the NeXT days, before returning to Apple ), full clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYfNv...
