an online notebook cataloguing the always expanding web development landscape & creative side of code.

I find tutorials and technical notes easier to read through than to listen to. In contrast, I prefer hearing about why people are drawn to the work that they do. If you do too, then the UFP Podcast might be of interest. It's where I put the many thoughts, ideas and questions I have that reach beyond technical notes and tinkering chronicled on this site.

Ep.05 | All About Math

In this episode I'll be discussing math and it's role in creative coding, how I got over my own math traumas, the connection between pythagoras and music and why everyone is a math person.

Ep.04 | Creative Inspiration: Sol Lewitt

This episode is part of a mini-series that I'll be adding to from time to time, that chronicles some of the creatives and artists who've inspired me along the way. I'll be kicking things off with Sol Lewitt.

Show notes:


Ep.03 | Code, Data & the Visual Arts

This week I talk about my master thesis - about how using procedural techniques when creating art changes the way you relate to your work, and how art, math and science have been bridged together thanks to technology.

Ep.02 | Artist Residencies

This week I talk about my first experience participating in an artist residency, and I interview a fellow resident & digital artist, Robert Allison about his experience, and talk to him about a generative sound project he's been working on.
