An Interdisciplinary Approach to Making Artwork and Algorithmic Thinking
Lee, Soojin (Inha University, S. Korea)
Yoon, Nara (University of Paris 8, France)
This study aims to ponder the relationship between contemporary art and information technologies with particular emphasis on the “process”. Most of the discourses about artworks based on information technology focus on the practicality of the technology. In reality, however, “making artwork” and “conceiving algorithm” share significant amount of similarities. To illustrate this, with humanities as well as informational point of view, we would like to analyze two interpretations of one particular set of algorithmic instructions; the physical version of Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #358 and its software version implemented by Casey Reas in 2004.
