Hello Lurkers, it’s time for a brief . I am raphaël, born in montpellier, studied art in brussels, living in paris. I usually write small systems with code or physical objects, that eventually become instruments, tools, or less functional things. I love cooking without cookbooks and I usually write code the same way. I am a free software user and enthusiast. I teach art and design in various schools and during workshops. I am part of @velvetyne and I am currently (04/2021) focused on and as a language, and I still maintain lots of tiny tools that I should list somewhere at some point. Procrastination is part of my creative process and I kind of handle it now. I have a post-punk band called zone and a debian computer called jardin.

Among others, software like and were performed with passion and energy.

The Paris live coding session last night was great. It showed how the scene is diverse in terms of practiced and styles. It also proved how open-source software can have a very positive impact on creative practices interoperability and is a node connecting different communities. I am very happy I met very talented artists. There is still room for progress: more women would be great for next time!

Too bad I don’t use this search engine so much, I kind of like this part of my identity.

I am surprised how my consideration for artwork I used to like (a lot), changed in the course of those 2 last years.

At some point, any digital work series with random variables will “look like cheap NFT from 2020”.

This big new wave of generated artworks drowns the energy of older ones, made in very different contexts.

I like how gravatar shows me my PP history, the dolphin must be about 14 years old.

Fun and cool that profile pictures doesn’t evolve so much as an internet object. It even lost diversity with time : it’s rare to see platform allowing animated PP nowadays, best for our eyes, sad for the folklore.

Happy to release this book I made with my father. It’s for pregnant women and osteopathic care. It’s in French, made with free software (web-to-print). Printed locally (FR) and self-published.

Raphaël boosted

Hi all. I'm Lucia. New on the block, here to introduce myself:

-- I enjoy computer music, post-photography, and backpacking. Have built a tiny home and eager to do it again.
-- I also enjoy DIY arts like rave and zine scenes.
-- I like to make music and visual art on my computer and I enjoy exploring livecoding and DSP. Some of it's on my website and i'll prob post some here too, along with process posts.

I also have a presence on Merveilles. This presence will point to that one but i'm quite glad to be here to interact with instance-specific happenings.

See you around!
