onedotzero was asked by Shoreditch House to host a series of intimate talks for its members. onedotzero responded with the series 'the power of art + code' which focused on creatives using computer code as a raw material to create fluid experiential work crossing disciplines from art, design, and moving image, to sound and entertainment.
Over four sessions hosted at Shoreditch House, onedotzero invited key creators whose exploratory and innovative work have been pushing the boundaries of what experiences the intersection of art and creative technology can deliver.
Vera Maria-Glahn from Field kicked off the series to discuss the Dalston-based studios's expressive and dynamic artworks for digital platforms: audio-visual installations, experiences for web and mobile, and shareable digital artefacts.
For the second session onedotzero welcomed Nick Ryan – the multi award winning composer, sound designer, artist and audio specialist, widely recognised as a leading thinker on the application of emerging and future technologies to the creation and performance of sound and music.
The third session featured Quayola, the Hackney-based visual artist whose work incorporates digital sculpture, immersive installation, photography, geometry. Working in both the artistic and commercial field, Quayola intelligently experiments with different media disciplines and is widely recognised as a leading thinker on the application of emerging and future technologies to the creation and performance of sound and music.
And in April 2014, for the fourth and final session, onedotzero welcomes Daniel Brown, an award winning designer, programmer, and artist, specializing in the fields of Creative Digital Technology and Interactive Design and Art. Daniel combines his background in programming and interactive design with a traditional aesthetics-focused direction to create installations, apps, and websites for luxury brands and private and public artworks. He has been acknowledged as a pioneer in the new media field - he was chosen as London Design Museum’s Designer of the Year in 2004 and has since been selected for The Observer's '80 people who will define the next 10 years', Design Week's Hottest 50 Designers and invited to Buckingham Palace to honour the contribution of design to British economy and culture. His experimental works are now archived in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and London's Victoria and Albert Museum.
