New York- and Seoul-based artist and educator Taeyoon Choi and New York-based professor of media studies Alexander R. Galloway join to consider the common underpinnings of textile and code, including those of duality and opposition, from humans and machines to production and philosophy. How may these considerations supersede or sustain such binarisms? What alternative relations are possible? The conversation will be moderated by Amy K.S. Chan, Hong Kong-based professor and scholar researching on the intersections of technoscience and philosophy, as well as gender and literary studies.

This Keynote is part of Poetic Emergences: Organisation through Textile and Code, a 4-day online Discussion Forum held on 16–19 April, 2021 that gathers the voices of local and international creative practitioners including weavers, programmers, philosophers and community workers to investigate the transformative processes of textile and code.

Poetic Emergences: Organisation through Textile and Code

More information

Poetic Emergences: Organisation through Textile and Code is a 4-day online Discussion Forum held on 16–19 April, 2021 that gathers the voices of local and international creative practitioners including weavers, programmers, philosophers and community workers to investigate the transformative processes of textile and code.

The interlacing of threads is akin to the sequencing of instructions; both are actions that transform information into the perceptible experiences of textile(s) and computer code respectively. Yet, what emerges are not only such material structures but also social organisations, such as the tailor and their clients, as well as the programmer and their users. These networks of human interactions are each imbued with unique histories, tensions and more importantly, the poetic possibility of shaping change.

The forum is a pre-event to the exhibition Interweaving Poetic Code (on view at CHAT in Hong Kong 1 May — 18 July, 2021) curated by CHAT’s Executive Director and Chief Curator Takahashi Mizuki with Taeyoon Choi as Artistic Director.
