rand is a recently turned self employed software developer of the visual art-instrument niseq.

He started out studying film and fotography a decade ago, at which point he didn't have any experience with programming. His audio/visual art-installation, done as the final project at the photo-school Fatamorgana, led to the idea of making a new kind of instrument for making visual art.

A long journey later, through studying computer-science and philosophy at RUC, working as a Scala programmer for several years and making a lot of sideprojects in his favorite language, OCaml - the time has come to 'tie the loop' and go back to making art, now through the (yet to be seen) revolutionary visual instrument niseq.

Most of film-art made today is centered around a narrative structure - where the relevance of th… Read more
