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.


Masterclass directed by Martin Howse & Nik Gaffney, participants; (tbc. Alonso Vazquez, Vilbjørg Broch, Janneke Raaphorst, Adam Campbell, Claire Williams, Julien Poidevin, Afshin Dehkordi)
