Martin Schneider

Artist, Teacher

Martin Schneider works and teaches at the intersection of art, code and crafts. He is the founder of bitcraftlab, an imaginary lab dedicated to explore the convergence of craft and computation and owns a couple of knitting machines and a laptop. He lives in Germany, where he teaches algorithmic thinking and creative coding at the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz. Martin is deeply intrigued by the dynamics and aesthetics that can emerge from simple programs and likes to explore concepts of mathematics, self-organisation, evolutionary design and artificial life. He collaborated with artists on installations involving video games, computer-augmented crafts, generative video-processing, neural networks, drones, lasers and a pool of ballpit balls. With the help of some great people, he initiated a couple of events like the rule110 winter workshops on cellular automata, turtle craft workshops on computational embroidery, and the textile resistance lecture series.
