Magno Caliman [NL] – Error making and “not-knowing”: some particularities of the relation between artists and programming languages

• 2018-10-10 WED • 18:00 • LECTURE • Gallery Siva

Computer programmers working in non-artistic applications and artists using programming languages to support an artistic practice might seem, at first, to be making use of the same tools (computational devices), and therefore can be thought of having similar practices.
In this lecture we will draw parallels between the modes of operation of this two use cases. Specifically, we will comment on how artists are in a position not conceivable to the professional programmer: one where error making, trial-and-error, and “not knowing” some of the underling technical aspects of the practice are not only expected, but sometimes necessary in both the day-to-day experimental practice, as well as in the learning of those computational tools.

Magno Caliman

Originally trained as a classical composer at the conservatory, but with a background as a hardcore / death metal guitarist, now presents himself as a sound artist and multimedia performer, with a focus on the intersection between art and technology. In particular, two specific practices have guided almost entirely the processes in his works for the last few years: the construction, modification and manipulation of electronic circuits; and the embracing of programming languages as places for poetical speculation.
