Artist in Residency: Anna Carreras


Anna Carreras will develop a live coded performance and installation based on visual and physical interfaces. Her installation will allow visitors to participate in live coding through an interface, a hacked typewriter, and to generate rhythm, sounds and visuals with the machine. The project explores, on the one hand, how visual elements and algorithms generate machine language, and, on the other hand, how machine sounds can be visually represented.

Anna's project deals with complex systems that lie on a continuum between regularity and chaos, between order and disorder. Her visual and sonic exploration of balance and homeostasis is inspired by early ideas of cybernetics. Anna will share the results of her research in the form of open-source software libraries and documentation on GitHub for other artists or creators to use, build on and explore further.

About the artist

Anna Carreras (1979) is a Barcelona-based creative coder and digital artist interested in the complexity that emerges from simple behaviors. In her work, she uses generative algorithms, creative code, and interactive technology as a means of communication and experience generator. She develops interactive installations to explore new emerging narratives encouraging the audience to participate and promote their collaboration. Anna received several awards for her work, including a Cannes Golden Lion for Interactive Projects in 2010 and Google DevArt (art made with code) Award in 2014. She has developed and exhibited interactive and digital installations for Cosmocaixa, Expo Zaragoza, Forum Barcelona, and Sónar Innovation Challenge, to name a few. Last year, she was invited to participate in the inaugural collective exhibition for Feral File.
