Poetics of Computer Language: Beauty, complexity and metaphor in the development of new computer languages. Jonathan Vingiano, Ramsey Nasser and Brian House in conversation with Caroline Woolard.

Jonathan Vingiano and Ramsey Nasser are both creating engaging, intuitive and poetic computer programming languages, focusing on the aesthetics of user interface and code. Brian House is a composer and programmer who is intensely interested in the difference between ‘scores’ and ‘code’ in computer music. Caroline Woolard will lead a conversation that explores the complexities of finding beauty in a type of language that some find alienating.
