Language Embodiment ¿?
by Esteban Betancur & Jack Armitage

Each word has an unique existence, its own semantic relation in a specific context, its particular sound (sound in time) and its graphic structure (strokes on a support). It is possible to construct a programming language where the syntactic-semantic relationship can be subverted to transform the language itself into a poetic entity, not only expressive by its capacity to generate (poiesis) computational organisms, but also by its sonority, rhythm and form.  Another possibility is to adapt the language (of programming) to a particular context (geographical, cultural, artistic) allowing the use of words in different languages ... the code stops being an imposition (or a colonization) and starts to be an inclusion and an opening.
