A dynamic coding exploration for creative programmers during the opening program of »Digital Imaginaries - Africas in Production«.

Drawing on Zulu beadwork, Tegan Bristow (Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival, South Africa) will illustrate the exploration of beadwork patterns as a reference for complex mathematics in coding. Creative coders working in any medium are invited to join in exploring the complex layers of beadwork in code. The workshop is part of a series of events that explore the notion of vernacular algorithms.

The workshop will be held in English.
Bring your own laptop if possible!
