Computational Sketchbook



Imaginary maps


Computational Sketchbook is a sample of daily, 90-minute sketches made out of code. Most begin as formal exercises in computation. A few use code to play with existing works by artists I enjoy: Anni Albers, Sol Lewitt, Georg Nees, Roberto Burle Marx, Alberto Giacometti.

These sketches were made as part of the Computational Form course at Parsons School of Design. More can be found on my page of the class blog.
