We will interview Nick about his practice and residency experience in the near future.

“I am currently working on drawings which represents my faithful attempts to draw precise mathematical patterns by hand based on a simple set of rules, analogous to a computer algorithm. Tiny imperfections reverberate across the page as the length and placement of each line affects all of its neighbors, a testament to the imprecision of my hand. I then wrote a computer program which mimics the hand drawn pattern by creating intentional algorithmic imperfections in the drawing of the pattern. This work is concerned with the expressive possibilities of computing when placed in feedback loops with analog processes.”
