Spaghetti Coder is a multimedia project started in January 2015 by creative coder Toni Mitjanit (@spaghetticoder77) in the area of Generative Art in order to explore new boundaries in audiovisual expression. It is focused on producing amazing graphics, fascinating sounds and interactive animations using creative coding.


David Fodel has worked with electronic media and sound since the late 1970’s, exploring ways of building audiovisual systems that exhibit unexpected behaviors emerging from relatively simple interactions using hybrid imaging techniques to create man-machine entanglements bridging science, history, art and magic.

Much of his video work over the last 2 decades has been an exploration of ‘visual music’ – with or without audio elements. Using abstraction and movement primarily but leveraging advanced technologies such as machine vision and specialized optics and sensors. Fodel explores a visual counterpart to musicality though pattern, contour, displacement, value and variation.

David is an artist, teacher, and curator whose eclectic installations, live-media performances, award- winning sound design and video works have been exhibited, screened, and performed internationally including ISEA, Hong Kong; TiMaDi, London, England; Post-Screen Festival, Lisbon, Portugal; Festival ECUA- UIO, Quito, Ecuador; Future Places Festival, Porto, Portugal; Transmediale, Berlin, Germany. His work has been written about in Wired Magazine, and published by the Experimental Television Center, New Media Caucus, Post-Screen Festival, Hz Journal and Sekans Cinema Journal.

Recent residencies include the National Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow, STEIM, Amsterdam, FEED Media Art Center in Erie, and the Experimental Television Center and Signal Culture in New York.
