These images and videos are the artist’s self-portrait series created using live coding with Hydra in the browser. Hydra is a platform for live coding visuals, in which each connected browser window can be used as a node of a modular and distributed video synthesizer. Using coding as a performative medium for self-exploration, this artwork examines the digital mirror of the body in live interaction with visual patterns (developed through modular video synthesis) to create dynamic moving portraits of one’s self.
