I’ve never been one to conform, and I’ve never limited myself to one creative medium: I write, I shoot (photographs/video), I code, and I make.

To focus my work, I’ve developed frameworks for my creativity.

Metta

Metta #0 (live render, double-click to pause/unpause)

“Metta” is an exploration of the interconnected world, visually represented through procedural patterns and Voronoi tessellations created through a process similar in principle to signed distance functions.

The patterns created in this project reflect life’s intricate web, showing how individual entities, distinct yet interconnected, form a cohesive whole. The artwork’s animation, driven by interaction between the entities, brings these connections to life, illustrating the dynamic nature of relationships.

In addition to the aesthetic display, the project is a metaphorical expression of the Metta philosophy. It invites viewers to contemplate the unseen connections in our lives and recognize the profound interconnectedness of all beings. “Metta” seeks to awaken a sense of unity and empathy in its mindful viewers, gently guiding them to appreciate the intricate web of relationships that form the fabric of our collective experience.

Time Between the Lines is Thread Through the Mind

Time Between the Lines is Thread Through the Mind #0 (live render, skeuomorphic-off)

Time Between the Lines is Thread Through the Mind (AKA “Thread”) is a meditative plotter-performance art project, where each experience is uniquely recorded using specific pen colors on either dark or light paper.

As the fourth project in the Zenerative series of Zen-inspired generative art, it explores the value of time and the interplay between efficiency, order, and aesthetics.

The default live-code outputs are skeuomorphic, each drawn with 500,000 to 1,000,000 circles, while the default live-plot modes use a few thousand simplified lines. Using URL parameters, these live modes can be displayed digitally or plotted. Each token has one default output and includes a total of eight canonical versions.
