my name is pierre and i write code for various reasons.
pratically, i write software for arts and media organizations, such as museum pieces, interactive installations, machine learning or live performance, amongst others.
conceptually, i wrote versions of augmenting the gallery, politics of code, software art (image + text) , alternate realities, communications lab at new york university, digital culture at sciences po and computational representations at the filmuniversität. i currently teach some of these.
weaving it all together, i'm writing a doctoral thesis on the role of aesthetics in the understandings of source code.
finally, i also write traditional articles and less traditional websites.
here, you could come across both the brainiest thing i've worked on, the the silliest, and perhaps the nightly.
