Visualisation of Live Code

Alex Mclean, Nick Collins and I have written a paper for EVA 2010 on Visualisation of Live Code (link to preprint version).

In this paper we outline the issues surrounding live coding which is projected for an audience, and in this context, approaches to code visualisation. This includes natural language parsing techniques, using geometrical properties of space in language semantics, representation of execution flow in live coding environments, code as visual data and computer games as live coding environments. We will also touch on the unifying perceptual basis behind symbols, graphics, movement and sound.

The paper includes betablocker, daisy, al jazari and scheme bricks.
