A Rare Update

August 14, 2021 | By

I’m an artist now! There I said it, so it’s true! Who woulda thought it? Having spent almost my entire adult life so far, as a software engineer, I decided I needed a change. Actually, it’s not quite that cut and dry, and in fact my current artistic distraction began as a tech project. Essentially, I was exploring neural networks and deep learning, and I stumbled into the whole art side of NNs. My deep learning sandbox inexorably became an art tool set, and now I spend my days making strange, abstract art. I am what is called, a Generative Artist, and I make abstract art using all sorts of cool software I’m actively programming and developing. You can see some examples of the art I make below. I also have an Instagram account for all this stuff, so feel free to check it out.

I come from a family of artists and creativity runs deep in the genes, but being the “technical” one in the family, my work and interests were always considered not so much artistic, but still creative. This new art thing is a perfect mix of skills and interests, and my programming chops have enabled me to understand and make some nice tools and tech that allows me to express myself in a cool and unique way. It just goes to show that life is unpredictable, and how ironic it can be too. I am legally blind, and I decide to be an artist and make visual art. It’s fucking hilarious really!
