Potato Computer Club is a practice-based PhD study that focuses on the exploration of enlivening computing education through feminist pedagogies. Through this research, I explore how pedagogies can embody multiple human and nonhuman perspectives. I experiment through arts workshops that explore computing using potatoes to explore computing relations such as slowness, kinship, and collectivity.
Programming with potatoes centres failure and playfulness, exploring feminist computing pedagogical practice. The work started as research into how to add texture to how we relate to computers. As pedagogical apparatus, potatoes bring many modes of being and thinking into spaces of computing through their failure to fit in, questioning computing mastery. They activate collective storytelling, and forgetting of traditional ways of doing computing.
