(1) Coding Systems is a creative process. The result of coding systems is emergent. (2) Coding Systems is a tool. It codifies flexible systems into a language that makes them executable by machines but used by humans. (3) Coding Systems believes in the human as the driving force behind thinking. Tech should enhance thinking and not obscure it. Tech and the dynamics behind it, need to stay transparent in its incentives. (4) Coding Systems strives for a better understanding of the costs and consequences of our work and wants to act accordingly. (5) While we want to work on real-life projects, we are teachers at heart.

Coding Systems is an explorative framework by Tim Rodenbröker and Martin Lorenz, researching the potential of Creative Coding for Flexible Visual Systems.
