I have a short chapter on critical approaches to research-practice in Parsing Digital: Conversations in Digital Art by Practitioners and Curators (2018). The chapter discusses the experimental recodings of early computer art that I began as part of my research residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude. The book turned out beautifully – Sally Golding edited it, and it was published by the Austrian Cultural Forum London. Free copies might still be available there – or click here to download a digital copy. Other contributors include Addie Wagenknecht, Alex McLean, Ellen Harlizius-Klück, Luba Elliott, Manuela Naveau, and Irini Papadimitriou.

The cover image features a visualization of weaving patterns produced by Alex McLean in his TidalCycles live coding software.
