The two-day Earth Coding workshop explores links between contemporary technology and the Earth in an attempt to define and create a new form of land art. Through a variety of experimental activities, including telluric currents and earth antennas, the workshop aims to find possible answers to questions such as: ‘Can the Earth as a process be tempted to compose software?’. This workshop will include a field trip to a nearby natural terrain.

We recommend that participants bring along some form of recording, inscribing, or transcribing devices (tape or digital audio recorder, camera, film, pencil, paper, and so on). Headphones are also useful to bring

(some workshop notes)
