Interrupciones Algorítmicas

Interrupciones Algorítmicas (Algorithmic Interruptions) is a creative programming workshop aimed at women and other Latin American dissident bodies. It sought to bring and guide women to the programming language, from scratch.

Here, assistants learned basic notions of algorithmic thinking (thinking like a computer), as well as its use as a means for creating digital visual pieces. Specifically, we wrote small software with a series of instructions, which translated into computer language, displayed different shapes; from the point to the square (and other geometric shapes), the use of color, patterns of a given plane, and the use of random functions.

The workshop takes its name from the series of algorithmic drawings “Interruptions” (1968) created by Vera Molnár, a pioneer artist in computer art.
