Lecture The Performance of Code Nancy Mauro-Flude.
The ‘performance of code’ encompasses semiotics and code in a social sense and slips within descriptions of code in functional senses, such as lexicon and grammar, encoding systems and heuristics and algorithms, politics of programming and language (which are considered as dynamic, ephemeral, and always in motion). The terms ‘performance of code’ is developed and applied to examine an oeuvre of computer culture figureheads, and artists.
