School for poetic computation (SFPC) is a hybrid of school, artist residency and research group that run for ten weeks in New York City. We focus on working with a small group of students from diverse technical and professional backgrounds each term. The core curriculum center around code, hardware and theory, along with classes on topics that investigate poetics, aesthetics, politics of computation. The visiting artist lectures, workshops and public events where students present their work in progress are also important part of the program.
SFPC started as an experiment to open source teaching and learning, a place to explore new topics of art and technology. SFPC team actively search for new teachers and visiting artists who will bring in academic rigor and artistic inspiration to the students. The goal of the program is to create an environment where students and faculty both grow as artists, learn to use new tools and also to learn to teach, and most importantly open up to more collaborations.
