“I’m not trying to make a Pixar movie. What I’m doing is actually very, very simple. A computer graphics person would not be impressed. It’s also lo res...the other really important distinction is the scale. I feel like every single dot is important. More than the code itself, I’m interested in the visual manifestation of the code, interested in what I’m going to see. So it’s really not about knowing anything about the code, but rather what can it do?” – Leo Villareal
