Code Art Brutalism: Low-Level Systems and Simple Programs
Simon Yuill

Author: An exploration of the aesthetics of low-level coding, such as raw binary, assembler, and greycode, as well as microcontroller-based projects. It discusss works by Artem Baguinski, ap, slub, slateford, some PIC projects and chip customization. The aesthetic intentions and outcomes of the Brutalist movement in 20th Century architecture are drawn on as an historical reference point against which these works, which often deliberately expose the most basic raw materials of software systems and computer architectures, are discussed.
