Cooperating with the The Barbarian Group, they started of with a small company in Boston but are spread thoughout in NYC and recently opened in SanFrancisco last week. Influenced by Sachiko Kodama, in looking for magnetism in processing. He designed a lot of cool projects in processing, investigating flocks and particle-movements. Focussing on picking the colorsets carefully and not letting maths take care of the picking. Check www.inthemod.com, but all this is "just in the frame of experimenting".
