ex vetus, invenimus novi
I'm Matilde Park. I'm a hacker and "creative technologist" living in Toronto.
I've been a resident of the Sunshine Gardens clubhouse since 2019. I've been interested in decentralisation and the peer-to-peer web since 2016, when I first discovered Mastodon and entered the fediverse.
I came to all this from media theory; I had a career as a game developer for a few years, make music with some collaborators every now and then -- and honestly, I never got over the "potential of the hyperlink" the 1990s promised me when it came to art, narrative ...
In all my work I hope to weave a future that blooms the nascent promise of our particular field -- I feel as though the ways people can reconfigure technologies from all eras into extensible methods of self-expression and finding kin is far from zero-sum: we are constructing mutually reinforced spaces.

What I'm up to now:
And some people really do call me ~am -- Devine suggested I use it because it's my name backwards.
blog and archives
May include some scrapbooking alongside some former posts.
Video games I built alongside collaborators, co-owners, etc. (2016-2019).
Some of the music I've made with friends.
By the way ...
