Craig will be presenting an all-too-brief illumination of ‘input output cinema’, ‘procedural rhetoric’ & other nonsense buzzwords related to the authoring of expressive computer programs in this here 21st century.
Here is Mr. Craig D. Adams, a representative of an ambiguously pluralized art & design organization known as Superbrothers Incorporated, located more-or-less here in Toronto. Superbrothers, along with composer Jim Guthrie and the heroes at CAPY, was responsible for the creation of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, a psychosocial audiovisual experiment that claimed to be a cure for soul sickness. Sworcery was made available on Apple’s touchtronic machinery at the vernal equinox earlier this year and has since found a broad, literate audience of lovely people just like you.
* War With The Newts is a satirical speculative fiction story published in 1936, written by Czech author Carel Kapek, the very same clever fellow who coined the term ‘robot’ in 1921. The book is about newts, and it is seriously a gem. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even cry/laugh or even barf.
* Touch Sensitive, an input output comic by Chris Ware. Available via the McSweeney’s iPad App.
