    This semester in the Knowlton School, the lecture series, led by Kristy Balliet, is titled Twist. These lectures focus on reaching outside of a known, comfortable position within a discipline to others which may not usually be associated, but can provide an interesting new take on ideas. Here, breaking the norm is the expectation, furthering how design may inherit practices of others to expand the field. Traditional techniques and conceptions will be turned on their head.


    This past week, Casey Reas of UCLA visited for a lecture and accompanying workshop on code writing as art. What can be seen in Reas’ art is the use of programming, a relatively young field, to create visually intriguing and mesmerizing pieces. By carefully crafting code, he is able to respond to information, be it contextual or direct human interaction.


    In the workshop, students from both the Knowlton School, and Ohio State’s Design school were given an introduction to writing code using the program “Processing”. The studio culminated in a review showcasing print and animations that explored basic ideas in coding.
