Making Friends and Enemies

Residency and computer program: Knowle West Media Centre, Bristol. Launched: 1st July 2009

This two month residency offered me the opportunity to research and build autonomous computer programs that make art. The project has its own comprehensive website here.

“Matthew has been making little computer people. His playmates have specific task to complete, but occasionally their artist friend julia turns up encouraging them to give up their tasks to make art ,expressing themselves through making music pictures and poetry.
A meditation on what it is to be a computer, taking in chaos,artificial stupidity, feedback, memes, maps, the death of the author and devolutionary programming.”
