Sukanya aneja



  • I don’t understand shaders or stack programming, but can understand the input as poetry and output as visual pattern. This is actually a nice feeling - but how important is understanding the language to you?
  • ​really cool project! I find the effort to avoid vocabulary-standardization especially interesting

Loglophone: A light-based electronic interface that uses gestures to create improvisational audiovisuals

Luke Demarest


  • I really appreciate your documentation of how you’re making this system, how important is this to your practice?
  • Great to have audio through light - do you find interference from other lights is a problem?
  • Drawn to how you’re using microgestures in this project - is that intended - are you considering scaling up?

Fubbles // scribble functions

Olivia Jack



  • ​this is so cool, could you make it output osc or midi, so it can easily be be used for other tools?
  • idea for how to adding a z-axis ?
  • could also be fun to have the fubbles feedback on themselves, self-modifying fubbles sounds like a great title for a paper
  • Do you typically use this with a trackpad or a mouse, or other things as well?
  • Is it emiting sound by now? I mean, at this stage of development

LiveWriting: Livecoding the Audience

  • It would be great if you could describe a bit more of the actions themselves or if you have some videos of your practice after these wonderings or connected to the live coding of the audience, if there is any that is
  • The call solicited “speculative design” in your approach, and you were the main person to take this up - is this something that you do in your practice?
