    Generative Art Maker Michelle Chandra is our guest! (re-post)

    Generative Art Maker Michelle Chandra is our guest! (re-post)

    Michelle Chandra is our guest this episode! Welcome Michelle!


    Michelle makes awesome artworks using a pen plotter! Rob and Taylor ask her a lot of questions about her process and history with programming, software, pens and the fun of converting the digital to the physical.


    We also talk about waveform modulations, fractals and other cool stuff!


    Taylor's Art Assignment: Pick a memory with a place that is very important to you. Then think of an album you associate with that place and then listen to the album and draw that place from memory.
