When I was little, my dad told me
“A computer always does exactly what you tell it to do.”
If you’ve ever been frustrated at your computer, phone, tablet… someone probably told it to do the wrong thing.
As a fulltime programmer, (or someone who spends most of their time trying to get computers to do the “right” thing), this bit of advice is very calming – the computer doesn’t have a mind of its own. Odds are, any problem you’re chasing down lies in a mistaken explanation or misunderstanding between you and the machine.
Yet somehow, and almost as-if by magic, there are times when you know exactly what the computer will do, and it still surprises you. I want to capture those moments in my art.
Exploring the threshold where repetition meets randomness, revealing the universe’s penchant for both design and disarray.
Generative light and color. Physics re-imagined through the lense of the computer.
All 5040 ways to sort 7 items. An exploration in enumerative art, or, what is randomness in generative artwork?
Using simulated light and physics to explore the surreal, in a way only possible with a computer.
Debut Solo Show focusing on my plotted works from 2020-2022. Exhibited by Verse and curated by ARTXCODE.
Computer-generated, human-curated series of 19 generative gestural works.
First long-form plotter series. Each edition plotted and shipped once free. Released on Plottables.
Packing shapes edge-to-edge, and exploring the patterns they create. Released on fx(hash).

First long-form generative series. Released on fx(hash).
How many ways can you fold a rubber band with N bends?
Early experiments that lead to “how you see me (2022)”.
Pen-plotter pieces exploring the textures created by reflecting one shape over itself. Later inspired “Geode (2022)”.
