Hello World! Processing
DOC/TRANSLATION | 2013
Documentary on Creative Coding and Processing
When you write a computer program you are basically encoding an idea into a specific notation that a computer can run. (Casey Reas)
Hello World! Processing (2013, ~41min) is an interesting documentary about creative coding, with focus on open source tools.
I contributed with a portuguese translation of the subtitles, with help from Artur Cabral Reis (Processing SP) and Marcelo Padovani Macieira.
The video with the translated subtitles is not yet available. Download the portuguese subtitles here (.srt). Visit the project’s website: hello-world.cc. Watch an interview with the directors here

research | 2013
on the expressive use of digital media
The following is the abstract for my current doctoral research:
Note: this initial proposal doesn’t reflect new developments.
Procedural Poetics are artistic manifestations based primarily on the autonomy and programmability of digital media, and therefore that can only be realized or displayed through this medium. According to some authors, this practice is the basis for a kind of expressivity that is unique to digital media, establishing this medium as an independent art form (distinct from other traditional art forms such as Sculpture, Painting and Film, for example).
The goal of this research is to study these procedural strategies of creation, from the beginning of Computer Art until today, analyzing and reflecting on the theoretical and practical output from artists, software developers and researchers, in order to contribute to the understanding and maturation of digital medium as an independent expressive form.
