During the summer of 2013 I bought a second hand Roland DPX-3300 plotter. It's almost thirty years old now and I had to do some programming and soldering to get it to work properly, but it's in excellent condition and does what I want it to do.

My work is mostly algorithmic with random values computed inside a constructed environment. The drawings are the result of a conversation between me and the computer.

Essentially I code things and the machine draws them for me. It's all very very interesting...
