Code Art at the Intersection of Data, Space, and Time | HyperAllergic | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it

Lisa Gwillam and Ray Sweeten form the code-art creating duo DataSpaceTime. Engaging in the aesthetics, the politics, and various undersides of contemporary backend technology, their pieces break down digital images, investigate how visual data interacts with other visual data, and look at how new technologies play with old ones. Their work also demonstrates how coding can be a form of artistic control and freedom. In 2011, they launched their first project, a succession of large-scale QR code-based portrait paintings of iconic people and objects like Hosni Mubarak, or Carpaccio’s “Portrait of a Young Woman.” The QR codes that form the portrait components each hold their own bit of information–the results of a single internet search, for instance–and work in concert with a proprietary app, which after giving over the necessary permissions, and downloading, unlocks the data for the user. ....

So what exactly is code poetry? According to Kagen, "Code poetry can mean a lot of different things depending on whom you ask.

"It can be a piece of text that can be read as code and run as program, but also read as poetry. It can mean a human language poetry that has mathematical elements and codes in it, or even code that aims for elegant expression within severe constraints, like a haiku or a sonnet, or code that generates automatic poetry. Poems that are readable to humans and readable to computers perform a kind of cyborg double coding."
