MADE WITH
MACHINES

BJORKLUNDER

Diving into generative music and the ancient math of rhythms, I learned about Euclidean rhythms and how to generate them with an algorithm named Bjorklund. I made a simple tool that makes it easy to generate and play with Euclidean rhythms.

VISUAL SYNTH

Synthesizers and electronic instruments are fun, and the web audio API is incredibly powerful tool to create your own. My friend Jacob and I have been building a funky little sequencer. Oscillator tone circles are dragged into one of eight steps and horizontal position determines the frequency of the oscillator. Dual modulators are tied to each oscillator, with a simple lowpass to round things out.

SKIMPLICITY
BOOKBINDING

Sarah is a bookbinder based out of Somerville, MA. She's about to finish her certification at the North Bennett Street School. I made a website for her, which you can check out here.

GUN DEATH IN
AMERICA

I've been struggling lately with the state of guns, gun ownership, and gun violence in this country. For a semester final project on the theme of "viz for good", my friend Katya and I built this visualization examining the effect that the rate of suicide has when comparing rates of gun death accross different countries.

GAMES

My friends and I have been known to get pretty obsessive with our games (right now it's mostly Hearts, Big Two, and Yahtzee), logging scores for months. This is both a grand ole time and an excellent source of (more or less) insteresting data to visualize. Check out what I've done and how we've played.

CLOE YOUNG
PHOTOGRAPHY

Cloe needed a lightweight, minimal site to showcase her work, an unobtrusive look and clean typefaces to let her photography take control. See her work and read more about what she's up to.

MADE BY
HAND

DUVET

Avery and I collaborated on a project to transform a plain, white duvet cover. Equal parts geometry and whimsy took over, and we wound up with a one-of-a-kind, functional piece that'll keep you warm and smiling at night.

YAHTZEE

We've been playing a lot of yahtzee lately, but we ran out of the little, pre-printed score sheets. I designed my own yahtzee booklets, which you can download, fold, staple (or sticth), and cut to make your own.
