UP PEN DOWN

+

Théâtre la Balsamine (9-10-2017 → 13-10-2017)

+ +
+

+ Up Pen Down is a research based on the encounter between digital typography and choreography. By transforming the code into + physical movement the project traces the borders between the practice of choreography and programming. From 9 to + 14 of October, in the frame of Saisons numérique, the research will take the shape of a commented performance. After + five days of preparation, a print party will happen on Saturday 14 at 8pm. +

+ Up Pen Down est une recherche basée sur la rencontre entre typographie digitale et chorégraphie. Par un processus physique + de mise en mouvement du code le projet trace des ligatures entre partitions chorégraphiques et programmation. Du + 9 au 14 octobre 2017, dans le cadre de la Saison numérique, la recherche prendra la forme d'une performance commentée. + Après cinq journées de préparation, une print party sera jouée au studio de la Balsamine samedi 14 à 20h.

+

+ Up Pen Down is een onderzoek gebasseerd op de ontmoeting tussen digitale typografie en choreografie. Door code als een daadwerkelijke + beweging uit te voeren onderzoeken we de lagunes tussen de praktijk can choregrafie en programmeren. Na vijf dagen + van voorbereiding ― open voor deelnemers, wordt het atelier gepresenteerd met een lezing-performance open voor het + publiek. +

Process path

+

+ The research has developed itself in stages through several workshops over the the past two years. Reworking a workshop OSP + organized to explore performative typography with graphic design students, OSP invited Adva Zakai as a professional + performance artist, close to us.

+

2015 - Workshop Up Pen Down at la Balsamine theater during the “Quinzaine numérique”

+
+ + + + + +
+

+ Example of logo drawings code. Human grid as an excersice for collective drawing. Or the mapping of a path. +

+
+
+

+ For this 2 day workshop OSP invited artist / dancer / choreographer Adva Zakai to reinterpret a workshop originially organised + at xxxx Valence. And took as a starting point the relation between typographic movement and code. We started by executing + simple commands or computer code ― walking on the lines a computer would have drawn. We quickly tried to develop + movements through more abstract ways. In a exercice, movement rules were regulating the move of a groupe of people, + in other each participant was inventing its own movement rules that other participants had to decode. Rapidly we + developed a new game of coding and decoding. +

+

+ 2016 - Workshop Metahoguet at La Maison du Livre in the frame of the Saison numérique s, OSP invited Adva Zakai as a professional + performance artist, close to us. +

+
+ + + + + + + +
+

+

+
+
+ +

+ Hosted by La Maison du Livre a digital a typeface was drawn collaboratively + using Metapost in a two day workshop. Metapost is a specialized programming language developed for parametric drawing. + As letters were drawn using code rather than manipulating a preview through a graphical interface we could draw together + live and simultaneously through a collaborative text editor, Etherpad. During the workshop this shared pad was projected + in parallel with its graphical interpretation. This way all the participants could contribute with their letter(s) + being aware of the evolution of the letters drawn by the others.

+

+ Linked up with this common screen; a plotter (pen tracer) allowing live drawing of the designed steps. These + snapshots where exhibited so that visitors could feel the collective font process. Next to these snapshots specimens + of the final font were drawn with a mural plotter during the opening of the exhibition.

+

+ Drawing collaboratively through code asked for a different process in considering shape.

+

2016 - Worksession at Buda (Courtrai), at OSP WTC and GC Ten Weyngaert (Forest)

+

+ In order to analyze and further the research started at Balsamine we organized three working sessions.

+

+ In the two first sessions in Buda (October 2016) and at WTC (January 2017), we looked back on the experiment at la Balsamine + theater. Throughout our discussions we developped a common vocabulary and tried to precise our research scope. We + identified three programming languages, each being able to describe or encode a drawing but all coming with their + own approaches on how to desribe shape and motion. These languages were linked to approaches of movement we had developed + to arrive at strategies of interpretation.

+

+ During the last session at GC Ten Weyngaert (January 2017) we invited two external guests, Louise Baduel and Sarah van Lamsweerde, + to reflect on the work we'd developed and to find new insigts and directions to continue This last session helped + us to realise how each worksession was preceded by exchanges on practices of the participants and that these sessions + are crucial to establish a shared vocabulary and shared base of knowledge. The "lecture performance" we're organizing + in Balsamine in October 2017 is for us a logical next step.

+
+ + + + +
+

+ Session at Buda Kortrijk, with 3 Recipes for an 'R', drawn by the plotter, performed and exploration of the Bezier curve. +

+
+
+ +
+ + + + +
+

+ Session at WTC, excecuting the recipes in a grid. +
