my name is pierre and i write natural and machine languages.

my research revolves around the entanglements of digital technology and society, with a specific focus on source code and software as a mediating force. you can find publications in open access.

i wrote a phd on the role of aesthetics in understanding source code , focusing on how formal presentation affects cognition in digital environments.

the courses i teach span across interactive media, digital sociology and media studies; you can find them over at cosyll.

i also write various kinds of software, as well as websites.

here, you could come across both the brainiest thing i've worked on, the silliest, and perhaps the nightly.
