­čĹő­čĆ╗ Hi, my name is Nicolas Lucino Epstein.
Welcome to my personal webpage.

I'm a self-taught software developer and artist. On this page you'll find my blog and a showcase of my work.

Code

I started teaching myself programming when the 2020 pandemic made my previous project -- giving painting and drawing lessons -- impossible.

Some of the work I am at least moderately satisfied with is listed here and can also be found in my github repositories.

Projects

The following include both personal and commissioned works.

Sources

The goal of this project is to provide community-driven tool that attempts to make explicit the relationship between truth claims and the respective evidence (or lack thereof) which supports them by establishing sets of socially determined truth criteria.

My hope is that such a tool could be used to validate or invalidate claims in fields where evidence is easily manipulated, obscured or omitted such as in the social sciences, the news, etc. Tackling historical revisionism was the original impetus for this project.

I am still working on a proof of concept.

nilueps.net

I built this website using a minimal toolset: no framework, just a few files bundled with parcel. I'm toying with the idea of writing my own static site generator to allow for easy and consistent content management with zero bloat.

Web Goban

A multiplayer go client in the browser.
Still at in the planning phase for now.

Mapping Exercise

A data collection and visualization project for the artist Nicolas Grenier which attempts to gain insight into existential issues using novel polling techniques.

Seven Spaces

An unpublished showcase website for the artist Philip Meyer.
Built in collaboration with Nico Adama and Vincent Papineau

Touch typing training tool

My final project for cs50.

Experiments


Art

There was a time when I thought it would be lovely to be a professional artist. Unfortunately, I couldn't handle the realities of the art world and I decided to put my efforts elsewhere. That being said, I would like to get into painting and drawing again at some point, as a hobby this time.

Anyway, here's a sloppy selection of some of my work.

Paintings

Most of these are oil on canvas, some are on linen.

Drawings

Lessons
