Julien Espagnon (b. 1992) studied applied arts before becoming a web designer and then a frontend developer in a communication agency. During his studies, he discovered generative art and the use of code as a creative medium. For an entire year in 2017, he created a daily shape of animated generative art using Processing, which would become the "365 shapes of blue" project.
He translates his digital works into drawings using a plotter. The combination of these two media is the result of his research to develop a malleability between the digital and physical arts, which determines his way of thinking about his algorithms and his creations.
