Ester Marie AagardMy name is Ester Marie Aagaard and I’m 23 years old. I study Digital Design, IT, Aesthetics and Interaction at Aarhus University in my 4th semester. I first started programming last year, where I was introduced to aesthetic programming as a part of my education. I have always explored my creativity with different materials and find the materiality of programming and what you can do with it very inspiring
