Hi! For some reason my business card says "Computational Artist" :) I do generative art and design, interactive installations, teach online at https://funprogramming.org and offline, organize #CreativeCoding meetups in Berlin.
I use tools like #Processing #OpenFrameworks #SuperCollider #RaspberryPI #Arduino
I only do #ArtWithOpenSource and I'm inspired by nature. More at https://hamoid.com
