I write code to craft devices that generate visuals and music, mostly by using openFrameworks, cheap computer things and duct tape.

I also craft alphabeths and practice asemic writing.

you can find most of my things on my website: npisanti.com/

also for reference: a picture of a coffee and me

It has been around a year since the start of Operation Lemon Forest. Some seedlings were sickly, and didn't last long. Some were killed when the heatwave dried them out last Summer. Some, I gave away to new homes.

But a couple of lemon saplings still live here on my desk. I'm especially proud of this one.

I just love tiny single-function electronics. I just bought this tiny dictaphone, it can record and play 60sec of lo-fi sound and has a little flag and a magnet at the back to fix it to stuff (it's supposed to be for your fridge to communicate with your roomates or family)

Lion's mane (Hericium erinaceus) on brown rice. This species fruits readily in vitro, making it an excellent candidate for low-tech, home-based cultivation.

Lion's mane contains two classes of aromatic compounds: Hericenones and erinacines, able to cross the blood-brain barrier & promote bio-synthesis of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor).

"erinacines have potential as medicines for degenerative neuronal disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and peripheral nerve regeneration."
