Talks

Niseq: Rethinking how live visual art is made

At Bornhack, 2020

This talk is one of my first public exposures of niseq. It includes the ideas behind niseq as a tool and the technology. It also begins with a short live improvisation - where the full performance at the same festival is here.

Pure functional game programming in OCaml

At F#nctional Copenhageners, 2019

Flappy is a simple, pure, functional reactive game in the browser. It's implemented with an Elm-like structure, game-entity subtyping using polymorphic variants, local multiplayer and collision-detection.

Users connected to each others unikernels, each unikernel visualizing its connections.

Synthball

At F#nctional Copenhageners, 2016

The implementation of an interactive art-installation using OCaml running on the Raspberry Pi with sensor-input, and interfacing with Supercollider.
