The Creative Coding Podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast for about a year now. I first got into it when I started learning Processing, as they had some great interviews with code artists and digital creatives like Daniel Shiffman, Ben Fry and Golan Levin, who are heavily involved in the Processing community. The two hosts, Seb Lee-Delise and Iain Lobb, are very entertaining and there’s some great chat about being a creative programmer and discussion of the ins-and-outs of freelancing. The interviewees are always really interesting people doing interesting things, normally people at the top of their game in their field and I’ve found myself being exposed to lots of different, interesting projects through the show. It’s probably not for the non-coders, but definitely worth a listen if you’re interested in doing creative things with code. Here’s a show they did with the artist Kyle McDonald about being investigated by the Secret Service for an art work in an Apple store, as a taster.


I watched this documentary a while ago and it was really inspiring/terrifying look at being a creative in the digital age. It’s a really great watch with some interesting interviews with creatives from lots of different industries. Well worth a look!

Video: You Are Here

Our everyday journeys in time, through time, over time. Our everyday journeys through space, over space, in space. Synchronicity, incidence, coincidence, harmony, you, me, disorder, here, now, there, together, apart, later, before, here, now, here. Breathing the here and now, here and now….in Dublin, in a day.


You are here explores our ideas of place and our daily experiences of our environment through the simultaneous viewing of 3 routes through the city. It’s a rhythmic video, juxtaposing image rhythms at one time across the triptych with each third of the screen taking a rhythmic sequence from the music. The eye is to be engaged as much as the ear in working out the poly-rhythm the three screens create. Gradual transformation of all three screens to red and green at the conclusion. It was premiered at the Kerry Film Festival October 2011.

You are here was a experimental audio-visual film produced and directed by David Collier and Saramai Leech.
