Presented by Taeyoon Choi, Co-founder of SFPC
SFPC: The First Class

This presentation is dedicated to the First Class of SFPC
I’d like to invite you to a day in SFPC in
33 Flatbush, Downtown Brooklyn.
We had four main teachers
who are also co-founders of SFPC.
Zach
Jen
Amit
Taeyoon
Out of 60+ amazing applicants, we accepted 15 students
from around the world as the first class.
Most classes were planned weekly, but schedule was variable upon
needs of the students and availability of teachers.
Myself and Zach were in school 4+ days/ week to help students and
also take care of administration. Casey also helped with admin.
There were classes on coding and hacking.
* Zach explaining how pixels work in a morning class
There is poetics in the nature of computation:
the place where logic meets electricity,
and math meets language, which we find beautiful.
* Learning logic gates with low level electronics in Taeyoon’s class
Zach taught Input and Output and many other classes.
Amit taught Learning Curve.
Jen taught Math for Artists and Art for Mathists and organized
Open Dinners.
Taeyoon taught Drawings and circuits, and organized Art of
walking.
We planned classes for experimenting
with teaching and learning.
Jen’s Open Dinner was communal cooking and sharing
food and thoughts with special guests.
Taeyoon’s Art of Walking was walking and reading
What mattered was sharing time to make situations,
writing code and reading essays.
After few weeks, we started to call homework as ‘Propositions’.
Most importantly, student lead workshops ruled.
A lot of time just talking
Debugging together
being attentive and present

Explaining how pixels work

Info from Eyebeam website:
School for Poetic Computation, or SFPC, is an experimental education and research
initiative in the form of a ten week learning environment. It is led by former Eyebeam
fellows Zachary Lieberman and Taeyoon Choi with Amit Pitaru and Jen Lowe. In
partnership with Eyebeam Art & Technology Center, the school will present SFPC: The
First Class from November 20th to 23rd, a survey of unconventional learning processes
featuring fifteen artists from their first class.
Through an open call, SFPC accepted these individuals from diverse backgrounds and
locations around the world. Since September 15th, they have occupied a sun light filled
loft in downtown Brooklyn attending lectures and workshops and averaging days of 12+
hours spent together. Classes covered topics from basic electronics, programming,
math, cooking and walking and were accompanied by a program of guest lectures and
workshops offered by leading artists and technologists.These students have produced
teaching tools, software and hardware, interventions and provocations, asking
questions on the poetics and creative use of computation.
