I am an artist and creative coder. Software is my medium. I write computer programs to generate images and sound. The artworks can take different forms like prints or real-time generated visuals but the process stays the same.
I write programs that produce something you can see or hear. Something organic that evolves with time. I observe. Based on what it tells me I change the code. I repeat this process over and over, sometimes knowing where I want to get, other times letting it take me in unknown directions.
My work involves math and logic, but I often feel like an explorer wandering on mysterious worlds.
My main inspiration is nature. Its colors, movements and shapes.
I learn about our world by creating new ones.

Free Open Source Software
I use GNU/Linux and hundreds of Free Open Source tools in my creative work. Some of them are OPENRNDR, Processing, OpenFrameworks, SuperCollider, Firefox, nodejs, Blender, DarkTable, Vim, QtCreator, GNU image manipulation program, Kdenlive, FFmpeg, Audacity, LibreOffice, MyPaint, cmus, Midnight Commander, i3, VLC, git.
In prism-break you can find alternatives to many closed source programs. The EFF is a great place to learn about privacy, surveillance and freedom.
