Piter Pasma

Inspired by the possibility of math and code, Piter Pasma’s background in the competitive demoscene of the late 1990s honed his expertise in writing algorithms in their most efficient form. He is known for using mathematical functions to describe three-dimensional generative scenes, executed using his "rayhatcher" algorithm, which creates plottable line art, and uses a minimal amount of code. Pasma enjoys encouraging others to create by organizing Genuary, an annual event where artists create daily pieces according to 31 carefully selected prompts. Pasma is based in Groningen, the Netherlands, and has won multiple prizes for his real-time audiovisual artworks contained under 4 kilobytes.
