Hello! My name is JP, an engineering artist and frontend developer from Quito, Ecuador. My work explores generative systems, audiovisuals, and web technologies. In recent projects, I have been experimenting with websites and mobile applications, which have been an interesting way to play with design, colour, light, and motion.
