In computation, a ’pipe’ is a method that enables various software modules to connect to each other, where the output of one program is treated as the input for the next program. At the Promiscuous Pipelines worksession that Constant organised with FoAM in 2015 we used the principle of ’pipes’ to inspire uncommon junctions and perhaps achieve the opposite of a productivity-oriented systems.
The publication of reflections, experiments and other outcomes of this session was of course done in the same spirit. This publication is a hybrid between a formatted, laid-out publication and a folder of ’stuff’, an untidy experiment linking up bespoke software, live notes, raw materials and collaborative editing.
