Programa La Plaza Code The Square

Programa la plaza

ProgramaLaPlaza (CodeTheSquare) is a programming environment that allows any person to create visual content for the Medialab Prado's media facade using code. For each public call, the projects where showcased for a period of 1 - 3 months around 3 times per week.

The tool allows writing Processing.js sketches and interface with different public APIs that allows enriching interactions with the media-facade and the the people willing to interact with the system. Currently ProgramaLaPlaza supports tracking, cellphone interaction, sketch time remaining, small storage and willingly open to include more if suggested.

ProgramaLaPlaza had already three public calls, spring 2014, spring 2015 and Xmas 2015 edition.

The first call for project was part of the "after-arco" program within ARCO, the Madrid International contemporary Art fair.
