Tim and Ruth talk all things generative art and creative code!
Hosts Ruth John & Tim Holman discuss generative art and, inevitably, creative coding. What it is? Where does it came from? How you do go about doing it? And if that's not enough, they interview extremely interesting people who do do it, to see how they do it too.
In another random chat, recording between episodes, Tim and Ruth explore the idea of learning something new, and the difficulties you have when you have to start from scratch. Looking at the steps you have to go through to become good at something, including figuring out where you're bad at it, and finding out where to improve.
Ruth and Tim speak to artist & creative coder Matt Delauries about his process, goals when creating, and all things generative art.
For those that don't know Matt, his open-source code around generative art is a great place to start, as well as his many many conference talks and workshops, and of course all the beautiful beautiful art.
Ruth and Tim sit down with the very talented Sharell Bryant! We talk about Sharell's stunning audio explorations on the web. As well as keeping motivated and on track with side projects, different ways to learn and grow, which tools you can utilize to help along the way!
For those that don't know her, Sharell Bryant is a programmer and singer-songwriter in NYC interested in exploring the intersection of art, technology, and education. During the week she’s a Tech Lead Manager for the Web Platform team at Teachers Pay Teachers, a marketplace where educators can buy, share, and sell original resources, where she supports product engineers working on the front-end. On nights and weekends, you can find her playing with her guitar around the city or working on a creative coding project.
Ruth and Tim dig into algorithms! What are they, why do we use them, and what are some useful algorithms to look at when building generative art.
In another random chat, recording between episodes, Tim and Ruth explore creativity - what it means, the creative brain, why are we creative and the need for it.
Ruth and Tim have a big chat with Jake Albaugh, creative coder, experimenter & mad scientist who can hear colors. His projects expand across a broad range of topics with the web in common.
