Matthew Peter Nagowski | Artist Lecture and Processing Code Demonstration
September 28, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Instructor: Matthew Peter Nagowski
Explore the art of coding with exhibiting artist Matthew Peter Nagowski. Participants in the workshop will learn about the artists’ process, with an opportunity to experience his code in action!
Nagowski’s exhibition Banning Books: Understanding without Reading presents frequently banned or challenged books through textual analysis and data abstractions of their content. Using the computer programming language Processing, Nagowski analyzes and visualizes selected content from these books in a way that allows the viewer to understand key ideas without reading the text. Narrative elements fall away to abstracted thematic forms.
Workshop offered in conjunction with the artist’s exhibition currently on view in the Book Arts Center Gallery.
