I am a media researcher at the final stages of finishing my PhD on free software in cultural production with focus on computer graphics development. I have published a lot of stuff about it as open access here: phd.nordkonst.org
I have been with and around free software since the late 1990s, but my engagement has shifted from active community engagement and participation to research. I spent the past four years trying to understand the role of the Blender and Synfig communities, and open movie making, in the contemporary field of media production. After finishing this research project this year, I hope to be able to continue with a new obscession of mine that was inspired by work presented at a Blender conference a few years ago, and which is on render power and data heat recycling.
