Ben performing live

Hi, I’m Ben Swift—I’m a scholar, artist and maker, and one of the core developers of the Extempore livecoding environment (GitHub stars).

I’m a Senior Lecturer in the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, where I lead the code/creativity/culture studio. The c/c/c studio is a research group which exists to open up spaces for discussion about the way that code is shaping flows of information/culture/humanity in today’s (and tomorrow’s) world. You can read more at the c/c/c studio website.

This is my homepage & blog, where I can wax lyrical about my research/creative practice, teaching, and the thoughts in my head. You can navigate to the main areas (blog, research, etc.) using the navbar at the top of the page (and there are a few external links as well).

If you’d like to get in touch—and please do!—the best options are twitter or emailing me at [email protected].
