A Touch of Code
By Robert Klanten, Sven Ehmann, and Verena Hanschke
A look at the state of new media, tech, and data visualization art, A Touch of Code: Interactive Installations and Experiences gives us a peek into artists taking over where programmers have left off. A clock that knits a scarf, a cake-decorating machine that keeps going until someone makes it stop, robots in a garden that compose music based on variances of soil and temperature—the works in this book are humorous, poetic, and show us how the art experience has moved into the 21st-century's tech boom. Hardcover, 255 pages.
