This card sets are created as part of the 12th Seoul Mediacity pre-Biennale Station in 2022. The pre-Biennale exhibition Station examined the changes and attempts that media art has made in parallel with the 25 years of Biennale’s history; it was organized to discover a new way of thinking about the wolrd we’re living in. Code Meal Kit is an interactive workshop that took place from July to October, 2022 at the pre-Biennale exhibition convening conversations and collecting questions on the culture of technology across the computer programming language ‘code’. The card sets are designed as an educational kit created after re-reading, categorizing and re-shaping the collected questions from the workshop in order to share core thoughts of the workshop with more people. Code Meal Kit is made to encourage gathering of more than 1 person for finding ways to talk, debate, focus, understand and identify critical issues.
The cards carry questions created by the participants of the 10-part workshop Code Meal Kit. Each question was created either after reading the materials provided before the workshop began, or after the workshop concluded. The cards have been created so that the conversations that took place during the workshop can continue and live on. The questions are not designed to solicit answers; they are there rather to incite conversations around code and provide triggers to reconsider our thought processes. The questions are not limited to code; they also revolve around diverse topics and points of view on technology. We gathered around 80 questions. Among them, we eliminated duplicates and turned 54 into cards. There are a few that have been added or edited, but we focused on preserving the participant’s original intentions. Each question was posed by a different participant, and may be affected by the participant’s subjective views, perspectives, and biases.
