February 27, (Un) Programming Computational Processes

Roundtable Discussion

How do computational processes inform design? How do they inform different types of processes? The round table discussion is a vehicle to explore forms of computational processes through design manifested both as algorithmic construct and analog forms of computational thinking and making. Through a series of short presentations, the round table will trigger provocations and reflections on how computation inform design and how design is informed by computation through the lens of processes that embrace multi-scalar form of design.
