Exploring the Intersection of Art and Technology
Hi there, I’m Daniel, the hands and heart behind Postdrafts. Born in Germany, raised in the Caribbean, I’ve always been captivated by how different worlds can collide and intersect – just like art and technology. From directing short films, performing on stage, or writing stories, my creative pursuits have always embraced diversity and the freedom to delve into multiple mediums. Postdrafts is my digital platform for exploring these intersections, channeling the things that I have seen, heard, and experienced into a project that blends technology with art in innovative ways. It’s a reflection of who I am and what I aspire to create.
Here, things are never truly finished; they grow, evolve, and take on new forms just like we do. Postdrafts is a collection of ideas, a recognition that while nothing is perfect, there’s beauty in letting our creations go, allowing them to exist and breathe in the world.
You’ll encounter two main components on your journey through this site:
The Digital Garden is the digital representation of my notebooks, a dynamic repository of my thoughts and ideas. It’s a web of interconnecting notes, a knowledge base that evolves and grows as I do. This part of the project doesn’t follow a regular update schedule – it’s as spontaneous as the thoughts it captures. If you’re looking for a more detailed explanation of what a Digital Garden is, check out this post by the incredible Maggie Appleton.
Visual Fiction, on the other hand, is my creative playground. Every Friday, I release a new piece, an immersive experience where striking visuals meet provocative text. It’s a space for exploration, for pushing the envelope, and for diving deep into themes that intrigue and inspire me.
I hope you’ll find something here that resonates with you, sparks curiosity, or offers a new perspective. If you ever want to discuss an idea or share a thought, don’t hesitate to reach out! And if you’d like a reminder when a new Visual Fiction piece hits the site, feel free to sign up for my newsletter – I promise, no more than one email per week.
Thanks for stopping by!
