Next: Coding praxis: Reconsidering the aesthetics of code, by Geoff Cox, Adrian Ward and myself. This was a follow up to the earlier "aesthetics of generative code" paper, again Geoff doing most of the writing, with Ade and myself contributing code.
This was a response to Florian Cramer's "Concepts, Notations, Software, Art", where he claimed our aesthetics of generative code paper took a romanticist view of beauty. He also said there that our 'dorkbotlondon' events featured poetry readings of code. I guess he didn't read the paper, and had never been to dorkbotlondon, where this never happened. An early exposure to the macho, fashion-driven, intellectually dishonest side of academic exchange.. Although false dichotomies aside, Cramer's paper did include some nice points and I think was pretty influential. In a typically genius move, Ade published Cramer's paper himself as part of the manual for his 'auto-illustrator' software.
Anyway the coding praxis paper was presented at the 'readme' software art conference which was really excellent, and colocated with the non-academic 'runme-dorkbot citycamp', an awesome event I co-organised with some really lovely people, with a vibe I've been trying to replicate ever since!

Anyway here's the paper itself: zenodo.org/record/7137355#.Yzq
