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/

minitel-av
Audioreactive ASCII glitch generator

touchdesigner + libcaca + raspberrypi + homemade serial port + Minitel 1B (1986)

4800 bauds is a pain in the a** so it's not really synced to audio and all glitchy, but it looks great!

I tried to run Orca-c: It works! There's some minor character display problems I'll try to fix in the upcoming days (:

today i found the most monads online person in existence: Anatoly Fomenko, a russian/soviet mathematician and writer of several pseudohistorical novels about how everything we think happened in the ancient world actually happened in medieval times, who makes impressive gothic art based off topography

Last year, we spent 51 days at sea during the passage from Japan to Canada, it was the hardest thing we had ever done. We kept a physical logbook of daily happenings onboard. This is that logbook, revised, and with a ton of extra notes.

Has anyone heard of this book, The Planiverse? I read it as a teenager waiting for my mum in the university library and it stuck with me. I managed to track down a second hand copy! :D

It's set in a 2D world and frequently digresses to explain how things work. I love it.

It's illegal to enter buildings in the zone as most of them are completely unstable, and due to a new zone administration there's typically no bribing your way out of a situation. Sometimes in the most unsuspecting places you may find street art left behind by a Stalker who risked arrest for something many will never see. Somewhat of a real life Easter egg, or a subtle nod to defiance: "You're not suppose to be here."

Location: Chernobyl Exclusion-zone, Ukraine. 2019.
