Hi my name is Jonathan, and I hack on lots of art and sound and physical stuff. I'm living in Brooklyn, but visiting Japan for most of the summer.

I like to connect random inputs and outputs to see what people will do with them. I often take virtual streams and provide them physical facilities to exaggerate their impact on our lives. I am equally happy coding in C, C++, Rust, Javascript, Coffeescript, Python, Piet, Basic, Hypercard, and Bash. I painted a simple echo program and could very easily see myself holed up for the winter just with canvas and wine.

Some communities I'm a part of and love include the school for poetic computation, hacker school (now recurse center), arthackday, the medialab at the met, and itp camp. If you are interested in chatting about any of these, please reach out!
