People (tba)

Sofie Andersen I’m studying digital design at Aarhus University. I have a passion for films in general, but my favorite genre is horror films (especially zombie films). I love to be creative with a pen and paper, my knitting needles but also digital. This is also why I find coding very exciting
Nina Isis Kinch Bolton Nina Isis (25, she/her) is currently a student at Aarhus University, where she studies digital design. Interested in intersectional feminism and questioning the status quo through art and technology. In her free time she is a nerd who loves video games and hanging out with animals
Nanna Debois Buhl Nanna Debois Buhl is a Copenhagen-based visual artist whose practice draws connections across time periods and between micro and macro perspectives. Through studies spanning plants and particles, clouds and computer memory she connects scientific, aesthetic, and speculative perspectives in order to nurture attentiveness to materials and to tell counter-histories. Her work materializes as photographs, weavings, installations, films, artist’s books, and site-specific works in public space. She received her MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (2006) and participated in The Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program, New York (2008-09). She is currently a Mads Øvlisen PhD fellow in artistic practice at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Copenhagen University https://nannadeboisbuhl.net/
Cyrus Clarke Cyrus is an artist and futurist with a background in economics and digital technologies. His practice focuses on creating experiences to initiate discussion on the ethical, environmental, political and socio-economic implications of the technology filled worlds we are rushing to create. He is passionate about reforming human-nonhuman interactions and establishing new models of cooperation between people, ecosystems and technologies. His creative work has been recognised and exhibited internationally, including solo shows in the United States and Denmark. He leads courses and workshops around design and futures, and is a regular keynote speaker http://www.cyrus.website/
Raune Frankjær I'm a spatial media designer focusing on digital artefacts, interactive environments and wearable technologies. Currently I work as a Postdoc at the project Growing CoDesign hosted by the Dept. of Digital Design and Information Studies at Aarhus University. My research is practice-based and experimental and blends traditional crafts, organic materials and novel sensing technology. I am mainly interested in how digital technologies and creative-aesthetic practices can be applied as a way to reengage with the world we inhabit and build healthy relationships to the nonhumans that make up our life-world. Deeply vested into the pursuit of a more sustainable and live-able world for all of us (human and nonhuman alike), I see the role of design and designers in imagining new and better solutions to how and what things are and how can they be done. http://frankjaer.de/
Stig Møller Hansen Stig Møller Hansen, Senior Associate Professor PhD @ DMJX. Stig is a graphic designer, coder, teacher and researcher. He bought an Amiga 500 in 1989 and quickly developed a passion for mixing art and code. Thirty years later, Stig has made his childhood excitement his professional career, teaching programming for graphic designers http://www.stigmollerhansen.dk/
Mathias Hornshøj Hansen Freelance photographer and videographer with a passion for storytelling in motion pictures or stills. Experience in various different settings, such as wedding photography, coorporate video lectures, short films and more' https://mathiashornshojhan.wixsite.com/minhjemmeside
Ann Karring Ann's passion for coding was sparked during her/their education to become a digital designer, and now her/their interest especially concerns the use of code as a tool for critical reflection. Ann works as a research assistant at Aarhus University, teaching courses in design and digital culture
Nynne Lucca Nynne Lucca has a Master’s degree in Digital Design from Aarhus University. She is engaged with how we might imagine new, responsible ways of representing data from an intersectional feminist standpoint. To Nynne Lucca, programming can further facilitate this critical exploration of data as it brings forward novel understandings hereof. Something not achieved through an exclusive theoretical engagement. She, therefore, bases her work at the intersection of theory/practice or by “doing-thinking” https://www.nynnelucca.com
Simon Feusi Ludvigsen I’m 23 years old, starting my 2nd year as a Digital Design student at Aarhus University. My interest for coding occurred during my second semester while following the course of Aesthetic Programming. I am specifically interested in how coding in recent times contributes to the illumination of people’s diversities and how the development of this industry moves in a direction that hopefully makes up with the normative, old-fashioned ways of defining individuals (in all sorts of programs)
Sofie Fürsterling Mønster I am currently studying Digital Design at Aarhus University. Before I attended the course Aesthetic Programming I’ve never had anything to do with code or programming. During this course I realized how a lot of problematic aspects lie underneath the surface of the digital technologies we use in our everyday life, and this is really what made coding interesting to me
Heidi Phoebe Nikolaisen Heidi is a visual artist working within the fields of technology, new materialism and language. In her research-based practice Heidi is occupied with thinking about technologies as epistemological cultural phenomena as well as working with notions of object-hood and formal aesthetics of computation. Heidi is co-founder of the artist-run exhibition space for contemporary art Organon in Odense, DK https://heidiphoebenikolaisen.com/
Jeff Nivala Jeff Nivala is a Research Scientist and Principal Investigator at the University of Washington. He works closely with faculty and students as part of the Molecular Information Systems Lab in the Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering. His scientific interests are broadly focused on the intersection of molecular and synthetic biology/biochemistry with technology development. He occasionally indulge in more artistic creative outlets, including music, video, and fine art projects, some of which can be found here

Code&Share[  ]

Processing Community Day (PCD) is a day to celebrate art, code and diversity held in communities worldwide. Code&Share[  ] is a community that was born out of PCD @Aarhus 2019.

We are a group of software artists, coders, designers and students at Aarhus University interested in exploring code and software development beyond its functional aspects. Alongside Processing Community Day, we hold monthly meetups where we make workshops, coding sessions and share our projects.

If this sounds interesting to you or someone you know, find us at Facebook and our Website. You are welcome to join us for our next meet up.
