Call for Participation - Boundless Thinking, 2023

Live coding is not a genre. Live coding is boundless. 

Hybrid Live Coding Interfaces 2023: Boundless Thinking invites practitioners of live coding and those that are adjacent to submit proposals for lightning talks, mini-performances, speculations/ponderings, and/or art works. In this call, we are interested in proposals that explore and/or discuss live coding beyond typical genres and disciplines - where live code bleeds into other forms, fictions and fantasy.

Boundless thoughts. Boundless potential. Boundless signals. Boundless software. Boundless programs. Boundless loops. Boundless feedback. Infinite results. Infinite conversations. Is there an edge? Where are we now? Where will we go?

  • Live coding as a Theater or Games

  • Live coding as Flowchart/Word Cloud/Excel Sheet
