This article takes its point of departure in the assumption that digital coding as a means for art-making is epistemologically and ontologically related to practices of conceptual art. As the conceptual artist develops an idea, creates a ‘recipe’ for a work that comes alive in the encounter and interaction with an audience, so does a ‘digital coder’ produce a recipe for the computer to execute and make available for interaction with a user. the purpose of this article is to discuss how digital coding and construction may provide new practices in visual arts education. The discussion is based on a study of digital 3D modelling practices performed by student teachers in visual arts. The aim is to reveal potential new aesthetic qualities emerging from an attempt to merge practices from two different epistemological paradigms: visual arts and computer science (Buhl, 2019). Another aim is to contribute to the discussion about how digital coding and construction can become a relevant part of a contemporary teaching subject in teacher education.
