An artistic research project on the motivation, self-perception and sense of responsibility of people who write code.

In the times after Snowden, of Facebook and Cambidge Analytica, Google's Dragonfly, the GDPR, and so forth there is a lot of talk about companies and institutions which shape (change) the world with code.

This project presents a different approach: simply listening to the actors. Over 35 people who write code have been asked the following questions: Why do you write code? How does it influence you that you write code? How does it influence others that you write code?

The answers are as diverse as the interviewees: from computer science students to graphic designers, PhD candidates in economics or theoretic physics, to blockchain developers.

Yet there are common experiences: of screen-time and responsibility, of frustration and learning together, but mainly of fascination, for a medium continuously developing itself. In the end, it's about each one of us asking himself why he is pursuing his work - with or without code - and who and how we influence with it.
