Digimag 60 - December 2010/January 2011

"...The history of code in culture has followed a line of increased access since the first digital computers. Now, for the first time, we have a large group of artists, designers, and architects who code extremely well, but who aren't programmers by profession. They are first and foremost artists, designers, and architects, but they use code as an integral part of how they think and make. (The same is true in the sciences and academic humanities.) We're excited about the emergence of a programming culture that's unique to the visuals arts. The arts have borrowed too much of the tools and culture from the sciences, the birthplace of computers. The arts rely too heavily on the constrained software tools produced by companies like Adobe. We hope to see new ways of thinking about code and new tools that map better to how people in the visual arts think and make. Perhaps the sciences and other disciplines will be able to gain a new understanding of software by looking at how it is used in the arts; learn from how artists articulate and approach problems in different ways.."

Casey Reas & William McChandler, from "The Machine that makes Art. Form+Code in art, design and architecture" - by Sabina Barcucci & Bertram Niessen
