Going forward may not be the answer. Maybe I should go back.



Botzero is my creative and exploratory outlet that allows me to share my findings broadly. I appreciate the connections I've made and the easy information sharing provided by platforms like Discord and X. If you'd like to support my work, please consider an X subscription or a BTC donation!

<= Accessibility

Everyone Has A Seat

I currently have two projects in the hopper related to accessibility.

The first is a voice-controlled prompting system dubbed "Counterpart" that allows anyone to prompt common generative art tools without typing. Possible use cases for this system include prompting assistance for the handicapped, sample producers for hairstyling and tattoo shops, menus, and morphing wall art.

The second project is still in development but will be announced on 10/10/23.

My subscribers will have the first opportunity to try out new accessibility tools!
