Noah makes prints by combining digital technology with analog printmaking processes, writing custom-made algorithms that translate into woodblock & screen prints.

Images are generated through self-imposed, rigid systems that mimic looping computer algorithms. Simple variables — pixels, halftones, lines — are physically mapped onto matrices through a set of instructions that heavily involve chance procedures and random number generators. Process outweighs outcome and outcome is incidental.

For him, printmaking is the performance of an analog algorithm — every pulled print an iteration of the program.
