Art && Code Homemade: Introduction and Claire Hentschker

presented by Claire Hentschker

I’ve been increas­ing­ly inter­est­ed in this idea of media arts and crafts, and think­ing about…honestly what that means. And so I actu­al­ly self­ish­ly have a ques­tion for every­body. The ques­tion is, did you have a book when you were younger that was some­how like a DIY, or arts and crafts, or some sort of instruc­tion­al mak­ing guide for kids that had a last­ing impact on you?

In sci­ence fic­tion they have space­ships and long jour­ney type of stuff, and most of the time peo­ple seem to be by them­selves. So imag­ine hav­ing a lit­tle robot that you can just have on the ship with you and just talk to that, and it’d help you keep sane as you go through years and years of space travel.

All of my sculp­tures are uni­fied by that they’re almost…you know 99.9% just paper, with dif­fer­ent meth­ods of print­ing, and are all hand­made. And I think a lot about scale, and how the small­est thing can take up space.

Really what my work is con­cerned about is the body and tech­nol­o­gy. They’re often thought of as very dif­fer­ent things. Technology is thought of in these sort of rigid forms and devices, and the body is like this organ­ic oth­er type deal. So, I’m real­ly about explor­ing the ten­sion between those things.

One of the most beau­ti­ful things for me about open source is that you don’t need per­mis­sion. This is such an under­es­ti­mat­ed aspect of open source, which is that because there is no price, because there is no license, because there is no con­tact us” but­ton to get a tri­al… You just get the code, you don’t ask per­mis­sion from any­body. You just get going. And I find that extreme­ly powerful.

It turns out when­ev­er humans make a met­ric that tries to prove their superiority—oh, we have lan­guage, or we do agri­cul­ture, we do tool-making—we usu­al­ly end up just find­ing oth­er liv­ing crea­tures actu­al­ly real­ly already do this also. Honeybees wag­gle danc­ing. Leafcutter ants doing agri­cul­ture. Chimps using sticks as tools.

This library is a move­ment that cel­e­brates our his­to­ry, our cul­ture, and that serves our com­mu­ni­ty to learn and grow as soci­ety evolves. And it holds us account­able in the ways we deal with Black people—our move­ments, our bod­ies, and our lives.

I make dolls but then anoth­er dis­ci­pline that I’m inter­est­ed in is pro­gram­ming and cod­ing. And since I work in mul­ti­ples a lot, some­thing I think about is the dif­fer­ence in cre­at­ing some­thing phys­i­cal­ly ver­sus digitally.

At the core of who I am as far as my prac­tice I’ve always iden­ti­fied as an artist and have found that design and cre­ative tech­nol­o­gy are real­ly great vehi­cles for me to use to con­tin­ue expand­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of art.

I cre­at­ed this con­cept called beau­ty tech­nol­o­gy. This was actu­al­ly my PhD project. I was using cos­met­ics or beau­ty prod­ucts and embed­ding cir­cuits into them. So our skin, this two meters square of skin that we have, it could be an inter­ac­tive platform.
