Programming genius Todd Vanderlin makes maths fun (and look amazing)

Posted by Alex Moshakis,

To celebrate Tate Modern’s ongoing Yayoi Kusama retrospective, creative partnership Hellicar and Lewis created ‘The Hello Cube’, a quietly complex, social media-savvy interactive installation inspired by the great Japanese artist’s work The Passing Winter.

Hellicar and Lewis should be praised for such a masterful display of interactive know-how, but the London-based creatives weren’t the only people involved. Programming was completed by longtime collaborator Todd Vanderlin, whose own body of work consists of a mind-boggling mix of custom codes, mathematics and digital art, and whose site is a minefield of realised projects, iterative experiments and code-heavy tips. Who knew further maths could be so downright fun?
