Workshop participants will have the opportunity to practice some techniques and skills in the workshop, please come prepared with a text editor on your computer and open to experimentation! Recommended editors are Atom ([https://atom.io]) or VS Code ([https://code.visualstudio.com]), but any text editor (not a word processor) will work.
Matt Nish-Lapidus is an artist, writer, musician, and designer. He makes software, sounds, and texts probing the myth that computers need to be useful rather than beautiful (and learning that maybe they don’t really need to be beautiful either). Matt’s interests lie in the poetics of computation and its proclivity to create meaningful relations through recombination. Matt holds a Master of Visual Studies in Studio Art from The University of Toronto and has performed and exhibited at ACUD Macht Neu (Berlin), Electric Eclectics Festival (Meaford, Ontario), InterAccess (Toronto), Mayhem (Copenhagen), and many DIY spaces in North America and Europe. You can find Matt online and away-from-keyboard under various aliases and collaborations including emenel, New Tendencies, må, and <blink>.
