Hi, my name is Nicola Pisanti.
By writing code i craft devices that generate graphics, sounds and sense the world around them.

It's really important for me to keep my tools free (as in "freedom"), so I mostly work with libraries like openFrameworks and run everything on Linux ( both on desktop and raspberry pi ). I'm also skilled at overusing duct tape and asemic writing.

To see what i'm working on at the moment, check out my experiments blog.
