Presentation


Overview

Jeremy Thorp’s interest in computers and creativity can be traced back to the summer of 1985, when his father came home with a classic Mac. Loaded on that machine was a revolutionary program called HyperCard, which for Jeremy (and thousands of others) opened a door to expressivity through programming.

In this session – part history, part show & tell, and part call-to-arms – Jeremy will examine the legacy that Hypercard has left in his own work and within the creative industry. Along the way, he’ll share a variety of new projects, covering a strange terrain of concepts ranging from indie rock geography to weaving patterns, percolation theory and marine shipping traffic.
