Launch seminar: Weaving codes, coding weaves

Time: 4pm-6pm, 21st October 2014
Place: Lecture theatre 1 (LT1), School of Music, 12 Cavendish Rd,
University of Leeds, LS2 9JT

Through the AHRC “Weaving Codes, Coding Weaves” project we will
connect the ancient practice of weaving with the emerging practice of
live coding, exploring ways in which ancient mathematical thought may
be exposed, as well as forming a rich view of contemporary digital

Ancient weaving looms may be considered early digital art machines
which in Greek Antiquity prefigured concepts of dyadic arithmetic and
logic. Live coding is an emerging digital arts practice which unravels
technology in order to use computer programming languages for live
expression, for example to create improvised music. The connections
between these practices are as unexpected as they are rich, finding
ancient principles of woven pattern embedded in the very notion of
computation, and human relationships with material extending into
creative work with technical language.

You are welcome to join us for our project launch seminar in Leeds.
The event will be chaired by Dr Kia Ng, with discussion lead by the
following project participants exploring such themes as the Textility
of Making, Penelope’s loom, the Mathematics of Weaves, Patterns in
Computation, and Live Coding.

Prof Timothy Ingold, University of Aberdeen
Dr Ellen Harlizius-Klück, Centre for Textile Research, Copenhagen
Dave Griffiths, FoAM Kernow
Dr Alex McLean, University of Leeds
