    Daan van Berkel is a enthusiastic software craftsman with a knack for presenting technical details in a clear and concise manner. Driven by the desire for understanding complex matters Daan is always on the lookout for innovative uses of software Ada Lovelace: The first functional programmer Ada Lovelace work on Charles Babbage's Analytic Engine was far ahead of her time. She matured the concept of an automatic calculator by writing source code for a machine that was not even build. In this session we will take a closer look into that code and how it works. We will provide operational details of the Analytic Engine and learn how it can be programmed. We will even discover if Ada Lovelace was perhaps the first functional programmer.

            ADA - analog interactive installation / kinetic sculpture / post-digital drawing machine at: MoTA Museum of Transitory Art in Ljubljana Fine Art Academy - Center of Applied Art and Innovations / Wroclaw GARAGE Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow KIBLA Portal in Maribor AltArt Foundation / Cluj-Napoca FACT FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) / Liverpool FILE Electronic Language Int. Festival / Rio de Janeiro FAD Festival de Arte Digital / Belo Horizonte FILE Electronic Language Int. Festival/ São Paulo ............................................................................................................................. "The sculpture's name, Ada, references Ada Lovelace, who, in the 19th century, wrote a series of notes to Charles Babbage about his idea for an “analytical engine." Some interactive, kinetic sculptures, like Olafur Eliasson’s Weather Project or Roman Ondák’s Measuring the Universe, require the viewer to also help complete it. Others, like AnL Studio’s Lightwave, interact in order to take on anthropomorphic, animated qualities. Well, Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s Ada, an interactive sculpture (...) does both. The Ada – analog interactive installation is a transparent helium balloon about three feet in diameter with 300 charcoal sticks stuck on the balloon, each about 10 inches apart, using a technique that Smigla-Bobinski developed especially for this artwork. What people do when they come into contact with the floating, membrane-looking spiked globe as it floats around the gallery space is where it gets interesting. In the video above, some people approach the orb gingerly; other times they grab the charcoal sticks like handles and try to bend it to their will. Some people bounce it around like a beach ball at a baseball game. About halfway through, an old man tries to actually draw something, only to have it wrestled away by the laws of physics. Every time it hits the wall, the charcoal scratches its mark along the walls, turning the alien-looking, transparent membrane into an automatic art-making machine. In this, the sculpture references her namesake, Ada Lovelace, who, in the 19th century, wrote a series of notes related to a paper on her friend Charles Babbage’s “analytical engine,” i.e., computer, which they hoped would also make works of art as well. Smigla-Bobisnki hints that she's fine with not necessarily even knowing the extent of what she's created: “What here is exactly the work of art?" she wrote in an email to me. Ada? Or the drawing on the wall? ... Or both?” What she begins, the audience completes, and the result is an interesting look at the balance of power in what is essentially a rigged collaboration. “Once you set her into motion, she just works away,” Smigla-Bobinski continues. “The blacker she gets from the charcoal and the more she is handled by visitors, the more she seems to be some kind of alive. Even I, who built her, sometimes gets the illusion of her being a living thing.” (from "A Giant Bouncing Ball That Draws On Every Wall It Touches" by James Gaddy)

                  How would Ada Lovelace react to computers nowadays? The woman to be considered the first computer programmer accidentally ends up in 2012 and is confronted by the the predictions she had made before. The short was made as a final project at a Hand Drawn Animation at University of Pennsylvania in fall 2012. It was made on TVPaint and took around a month to be finished

                    Oracle is a 'video song cycle’ for voice and single screen HD video. Statements of the 19th century pioneering mathematician and computer scientist Ada Lovelace are revealed via the use of re-imagined visual and written archive material from which extracts are used as the libretto for close harmony vocal music. The use of ‘off-screen’ disembodied singing voices are designed to echo Lovelace’s own critical voice as observed in her translation notes of the ‘analytical engine’ (the first automatic computer) and in her letters to mathematician Charles Babbage. The objects in the video frame have the function of measuring distance and travelling through time so as to reach back to Lovelace's own visions of the future. She compares the engine to the loom that can weave patterns and prophesises that one day computers might compose their own elaborate and scientific music. This work is part of The Difference Machine a series of video performances which use mediated sounds and images to reveal the roles and representations of women in the assimilation of technology into culture. Oracle was commissioned and first exhibited as part of Autumn Almanac: The Voice and the Lens at IKON Gallery in November 2012, curated by Sam Belinfante and Third Ear. It has been performed at The Voice and the Lens, Spitalfields Music 2014 and exhibited at EVA 2013 and CAL Conference 2013: An Interdisciplinary Conference Celebrating the Achievements and Legacies of Ada Lovelace, New Jersey, USA.
