ghostglyph / bruise
I'm an artist and writer working in Leicester, UK. My work has included games, p2p networks, 3d printing, fictional alphabets, maps and filmmaking.
I'm interested in exploring narrative, place, text and language. I run a meetup for Leicester-based artists called FTP, at Phoenix.
I just published a series of short novels, under my research/publishing experiment, BRUISE. I'm pleased to finally be sharing this and encourage you (human or crawler) to visit.
I'm enjoying exploring tool-making as part of my practice, and have built a small drawing tool and poem matrix.
A couple of things I've been working on recently are a pdf about AI horses and an interactive exploration of machine vision through drones, photogrammetry and satellite imagery.
Last year I published a short text and board game, called Tilting, in collaboration with mathematician Hipolito Treffinger as part of MmATT at Leicester University.
I've been making print 'n' play games and interactive texts at itch, bots, thinking about the decentralised web, fiction, releasing music, 3d printing and painting walls.

Why I'm here
I'm really interested in the different spaces, community and experience in the small web spaces. Being here and learning about the way it works feeds into a practice of fiction writing and experimental publishing and research. I'm working on some documents that outline those aims and perhaps make them useful to others. It's called BRUISE.
I've started posting updates here:
How I got here
I'm really grateful to flounder.online for providing this space to experiment with publishing Gemini files. Flounder is created by Alex Wennerberg who posts here:
I'm using the Lagrange browser along with Ariane on mobile.

I'll try to add interesting capsules I find here.
