This Girl Codes:Year 1 Showcase

To end our first year of This Girl Codes, Lead Artist Cora Glasser took the work produced through our online activity ‘Atomic Poems’ – which introduced the life and works of Margaret Cavendish through our unique Fibonacci Poetry Generator – to create site-specific installations at Bolsover Castle, in the very places that inspired Margaret. The resulting video, photographs and 3D models by Cora are delicate, intimate expressions that respond to their heritage setting. The progression from strong historical female voice and poetry writing to Fibonacci algorithms, 3D printing and art installation encapsulates the STEAM approach of This Girl Codes completely.

'I would just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Atomic Poems workshop. As someone who usually loathes maths, it really pushed me out of my comfort zone and I feel that my writing will really benefit from this! I look forward to partaking in similar events in the future.'
