Random design #4

Put 3 species in a cylinder, 1,000 units each. Throw the dice and check to see what happens after 3 seconds, space wise, quantity wise, and air-quality-wise. Little colored stars chatting with each other & networking?



Random design #3 – AI poetry

Random design #3

A Watercolor?

What are the chances of a robot seeing my work? Many. What are the chances of a robot showing me what it sees? Very few!

Thanks to the Deepdream team, I took my two previous work to their random algorithm – and this is what the AI saw.

I haven’t done watercolor in years! I didn’t know robots had watercolor dreams! I was so surprised I (almost) left it as is. I put actual image #1 in the background to show where the transformation started from.


Random design #2

What if?

What if I change last week’s squares to triangles and tweak a few parameters?

Same concept, same script, a very different form of randomness! The dynamic of the triangle shape and the recursive aspect of the calculation make for a lively combination!


Random design #1

Randomness, uncertainty – a little like 2018 for me!

This image was made after a script by #VOS for ContextFreeArt. Two objects, a square and a circle on a plane. What will happen if I change the parameters of size, color, and positioning? That image and a sprinkle of infinite recursion. It makes for an interesting new outcome!

I’ve been intrigued by the concept of randomness in the arts for quite some time and it looks like now is a good time to go back into it. 

Where it will take me? I don’t know! But after a year exploring the well-organized world of mineralogy and crystal, it was tempting to shift to the world of randomness and the unpredictability that emerges from events we don’t control.

More background info is available on the Archives page. I’ll add to it as I go.
