What's the meaning of this?

We've been drawing since the first grunting ogre of a man stuck his sausagey index into the sand. Programming has been around for less than a century. I'm interested in what the two have in common.

I have been posting work at Presstube since 1999. If you're hunting for an old project, the best place to look would be the old site or the blog. If you've got a lonely terminal, give it a screensaver to help take its mind off things for a while. If you still can't find what you're looking for, email me and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction. Read more ⇢

Outside of Presstube, I spend a lot of time making things with my good friend, Amit Pitaru. You can see more of our work at Pitaru Paterson.

My solo and collaborative art works with Amit have been exhibited at the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; Seoul Museum of Art, Korea; Israel Museum, Jerusalem; GGG Gallery, Tokyo; Kunsthalle Wien, Austria; Centro de Cultura Contemporanea de Barcelona; London Design Museum and Museo Tamayo, Mexico City.

To support my Presstube & Pitaru Paterson habits I take on contracts as a creative director and as a front-end developer. I've done work for Bjork, Nike, Apple, Sony, Adidas, VH1, Motorola, Burton, and many more. If you'd like to work together, get in touch.

I was born in 1980 in London, England, but have been in Canada since 1988. I currently live in Montreal with my wife and son.
