Weird Code Club is an exploration of tools and spaces for creative technology ventures and is part of PhD student Annie Kelly's future dissertation work. Part of the ongoing work of Weird Code Club revolves around the development of creative and programmable tools and the research around artists working with these tools. One of the goals of these technologies are to simplify the process of creating multimedia performance projects to limit the need for outside interventions from engineers or advanced programmers. Some of the areas of interest are: audio processing tools, VJ and visual performance software, toolkits to simplify the construction of real-time tangible interfaces, design tools that target specific creation goals like proximity detection, stage lighting design toolkits, and more.
