Alchemy Islands is the "algorithmic design studio" of Phil Jones.
I am a programmer and digital artist who is fascinated by patterns and by programming. My practice consists of various translations between, on the one hand, code, which is symbolic and grammatical; and on the other, geometry, space and physicality.
I am fascinated by the idea of “programs that make things”. Ideally using elegant and beautiful code.
My current weapon of choice is Clojure a modern dialect of Lisp. Though some of the older stuff here is written in Processing / Java. (I eventually hope to move it into Clojure)
