Recode Project


The ReCode Project is a community-driven effort to preserve computer art by translating it into a modern programming language (Processing). Every translated work will be available to the public and contemporary artists to learn from, share, and build on.

The focus of the ReCode Project is three-fold:

1. Bring historic works of computer art back into the public eye.

2. Make it accessible and useable.

3. Save the code.

Processing has been chosen as the language of choice because of its ubiquitous presence in educational environments, accessibility to experienced coders, and because its a well-documented open source platform with a large community of developers.

This is an ongoing project started in late Fall, 2012. If you are interested in assisting or getting involved, please contact me at the email address listed in the Contact/Bio section.
