<h2>Dialogue</h2>
<p>
<span class="name">Pierre</span> Maybe imagine a human having a perception of a vector for the first time: a pregnant woman walks
on the flat surface of a beach, to the background of the sunset. She hunts birds with a bow and an arrow. As
she bends the bow, she feels how its straight rope interacts with the sturdiness of the bones of her arm and
how the curved wood of the bow is in sync with the fibers of her muscles. All those straight and curved lines,
along with the soft arc of her thick belly, are also drawn by the sun as her shadow stretches on the sand. She
launches the arrow. The arrow itself could be seen as a vector-wave-movement. She also feels how rays of sun
project her transformed shape of her shadow on the sand, following another straight line. She looks more closely
at the border of the shadow, and sees the very moment where some grains of sand get lightened by the sun, like
many corpuscules-pixels-bitmap, envisioning in simultaneously the two main components of digital images, and
t two ways of describing tangible matter.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Pierre</span> There are two matters within the digital, the molecular, which we recognise as bitmap and know
very well, and the ondulatory – the vectors. I want to not only utilise vectors, but also to go anthropological
about them. From that perspective I can tackle what is important in the aesthetics vectors create, beyond what
things look like and into the way they operate and influence our own operations.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Ludi</span> I have the need to include the body in the investigation of digital typography, because through intimate
relations with vectors, we can trace back histories of writing that depended on the body and its movement.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Ludi The body has its own intelligence. When I put, for example, the tension of the curve into this awkward body,
some aspects of the digital practice become apparent in a way that I can't put the finger on, but I feel
that only the body can detect.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Ludi</span> OSPies like dancing. But we do end up sitting on a chair when ever we deal with type design. Its
maybe a fantasy to think that such different modes of being could come together in an interesting way, but here
we are, using one practice to reflect on and activate the other.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Gijs</span> With Metapost, the human becomes the choreographer and the machine is the dancer, interpreting and
improvising with the score.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Gijs</span> Actually, a vector is a meta picture. Only when rendered it becomes a shape.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Adva</span> So, could we say that vectors are like movements?
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Gijs</span> Yes, in this case the movement is a rendering device.</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Adva</span> Maybe both movement and vectors are potential, actualised through rendering processes, by the body,
by the machine, by anything they activate?
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Pierre</span> I find both dance and graphic design poetic practices, but sometimes I felt we killed their poetry
by forcing them to interact with each other.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Ludi</span> We slowed the rendering process down so much in order to look into the process it facilitates. Maybe
that's what killed the poetry?
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Adva</span> I find poetry in the fact that we sometimes look at those technical processes through the perspective
of movement.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Gijs</span> If you think of programming from the perspective of movement, for exemple loops, the time it takes
to execute the code, the electrons jumping, freezing, flowing, interacting through the processor - all become
interesting in a different way.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Adva</span> I understood at a certain point that Up Pen Down is not a linear research, but rather an environment
we created for ourselves where methods, actions and questions we come up with can interact with pieces of art,
of knowledge, of completed or unfinished explorations of others within the field. Up Pen Down is for me more
of a place to be, than a well studied research question.
</p>
<p>
<span class="name">Adva</span> By allowing different body practices to infiltrate one another, contemporary dance went through various
exciting waves of new discoveries about movement. At a certain point the body withdrew and the conceptualisation
of movement entered the field. I ask myself if there is something new to find about movement through looking
for it within digital processes and if yes, can it maybe generate a new way of thinking body and of making dance?

<p>
<span class="name">Adva</span> I read once a Kabalah text about the letter . Sometimes this letter is used to indicate the name
of god. In that case, it should be written, but not pronounced. Its not because it represents god, but because
they believe that the letter itself, when written, contains divine power that is lost in the transformation through
the body from the written to the spoken. I like the idea of a letter carrying its own agency. This story is taken
from a mystical culture, but also on the more up-pen-downish level, we create texts, choreographies and technologies
that at a certain point become existing in themselves and start a relationship with us.

d'échelle et de récursivité. Ce qui nous intéresse en particulier avec Logo c’est sa “Tortue”; sorte de robot

The 3 languages come into confrontation, bodies have here to take into account collisions. Riding on the

the page.</p>

<p class="documentation">
HPGL or Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language, is a drawing and programming language to command pen plotters. It developed into
the industry standard and is still supported by contemporary devices. There are commands to send the pen
to a coordinate, or position on the paper and commands to put the pen down on the paper: Pen Down, or to
lift it again: Pen Up. If the pen is moving while it is down or on the paper the machine draws. There are
commands to modify the pen and commands to modify the machine, as in return to default settings, to change
the size of the paper or to pick a new one.

Metapost is a drawing language based on Metafont, the language developed by Donald Knuth to design fonts. In Metapost the
drawing is deduced from a collection of mathematical equations. It is not obligatory but often the drawing
is split in two parts in the first half the points of the drawing are defined. In the second part the connections
between those lines are described, straight lines or curves and in which direction do they leave or enter
the point.

«Let's consider the following mathematical problem: Given n points z1, z2,..., zn in the plane, what is the most pleasing
closed curve that goes through them in the specified order [...] To avoid degenerate situations we may assume
that n is at least 4. This problem is essentially like the dot-to-dot puzzles that we give to young children.
Of course it is not a well-posed mathematical problem, since I didn't say what it means for a curve to be
"most pleasing". Let's first postulate soractice of the drawing of this sign,me axioms that the most pleasing
curve should satisfy. [... skipping mathematical properties 1 to 4 ...] Property 5 (smoothness) : There are

<p>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.</p>

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.<p>

<p>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.<p>
<p>Drawing collaboratively through code asked for a different process in considering shape.</p>

<h3 id="buda-2016">2016 - Worksession at Buda (Courtrai), at OSP WTC and GC Ten Weyngaert (Forest)</h3>
<p>In order to analyze and further the research started at Balsamine we organized three working sessions.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>

<p>Some HPGL Command </p>
<p class="commandes">
  IN →initialize, start a plotting job
  IP → set the initial point (origin), in this case the default 0,0
  SC0,40,0,40  → allows scaling in millimeters since 1 mm = 40 plotter units. Each   user-unit is 1 millimeter, in both X and Y directions
  SP1 → select pen 1
  PU0,0 → lift Pen Up and move to starting point for next action
  PD100,0,100,100,0,100,0,0 →put Pen Down and move to the following locations (draw a box around the page)
  PU50,50 →Pen  Up and move to X,Y coordinates 50,50 (in this case mm, after the SC  command)
  CI25 → draw a circle with radius 25 (mm)
  SS → select the standard  font
  DT*,1 →set the text delimiter to the asterisk, and do not print them  (the 1, meaning "true")
  PU20,80 → lift the pen and move to 20,80
  LBHello  World* → draw a label
  LTlinetype,length → set line type and its repetition  length
  CSxx → set character set (e.g. 33 is German)
  DIx,y → set direction of  text given as the catheti
  SIww,hh →set character width and height
