Art Meets Geekis an online thought repository where I write about all things in the web and digital realm that interest me. My interests include front-end web development, ID/UX, web accessibility, generative and new media art and the history of technology.
There’s also a random category called 5ives which is a loosely themed round-up of pop culture recommendations.
This blog also has a Facebook page where I’ll post updates and links to articles I find interesting. Some of the coding and history I write about is research for my art practice. You can view my portfolio at veritygriscti.com.
