This week, I’ve been exploring symmetries and folding. I’ve implemented a technique for folding images back on themselves in an organic way. I was going to create a quick abstract video which uses this technique, but this piece unfolded and evolved instead. I developed the graphics and music over the past few days, going back and forth with […]
I spent an evening playing with some geometry, watching alternating rows of boxes interact with each other, as I tweaked their spacing and rotations.
It’s easy for me to work this out with my real-time system, and easy to come up with dozens of variations in a short amount of time. Here’s a gallery of some […]
Another nights exploration produced these images (August 26, 2013). The objects are each members of a class of branching fractals generated from a single stroke of my pen and recursively drawn. The exploration takes place in my real-time system where I draw the initial stroke, tweak the parameters, and take a snapshot of the result.
I made these one evening in my studio in 2007. They are studies on the expressiveness of branching fractals. Each “twig” is a duplicate of the larger branch that it spouts from. I created each image by drawing a freehand shape, then selecting a branching pattern and adjusting parameters, the number of nodes, and the […]
Images of Spinobifidae
Spinobifidae are a class of spindly, spiny, microscopic improvised semi-imaginary multi-celled creatures.
The images were created using my performance system. I draw and sculpt these in real-time using the gestures of both hands. Each gesture I draw is replicated with axial symmetry and fractal recursion.
Here are some color images, and following that are some […]
