Art from Code

Art from Code: Polygon Waves

For my conference project, I was greatly inspired by the works of Georg Nees and Grace Hertlein. I really admire the geometrical aspects of Nees’ work. Geometry is very captivating…

Art from Code: ‘CHAOS IN THE CALM AND CALM IN THE CHAOS’

For my conference project, I wanted to add a personal touch to my work. Hence, I used my instinct and my studio background in painting and coded two portraits in…

Art from Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

Grace Hertlein sought to digitalise nature. For her art work, she took inspiration from her natural surroundings. Eliminating the anatomical element from her computer art, she brought the natural element…

Art From Code: A NetArt Story

Aesthetically, the net art narrative that inspired this project the most was Olia Lialina’s My Boyfriend Came Back From The War. It’s an interactive non-linear story that features gifs and hyperlinks. Because I was working in Java and not HTML I couldn’t quite mimic this exactly, but I tried to emulate early personal websites by using Comic Sans and creating pixel illustrations. Essentially, I wanted to create what Hito Steyerl would a poor image.

Art from Code: Floaters

My conference project began with me following an interest in floaters, the clumpy, dark, things that move across your eyes and are visible when looking at a light, bright surface….

Art from Code: Frigid

This project began when I asked Angela about exploring nature through code- she suggested learning how to code snow, and that sounded like a great idea! Angela gave me two…

Art from Code: Self Portraits and Molnar Inspiration

From the pictures I have here, there are two separate projects. The first is a few self portraits, which is what I worked on prior to deciding to pursue inspiration…

Art from Code: Crazy Bouncing Ball

As a future game designer, I plan to do a simple interactive game at my conference. I spend quite a time on what game should I do.  Originally, I am…

Art From Code: Response to Vera Molnar

Vera Molnar is a famous computer artist with her own style. She really knows how to play with the order of computer art. Making the computer art playful, she adds…

Art From Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

I was unable to predict the behaviors of each loop, so my process involved repeated subtle reconfiguring and experimentation with different permutations. The resulting images are a series of curated accidents.

Art from Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

For my response to Grace Hertlein I focused on two things. One was to humanize the art and make it feel alive, the other to give the computer more control…

Art From Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

Grace C. Hertlein, professor at California State University, is a famous computer artist. She started her work in the mid-1940s and had her first exhibition, at the “Fall Joint Computer…

Art from Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

Grace Hertlein liked to use repetition and randomness to make patterns that were inspired by nature. In these pieces, I took ideas from the “flower” example we in class worked…

Art From Code: A Response to Georg Nees

Georg Nees was interested in using stochastic functions to disrupt formal structures. His work is characterized by a visible transformation from order to chaos. This is well demonstrated by Schotter…

Art from Code: A Response to George Nees

Modern generative graphic designer Georg Nees was a pioneer of computer art. One of Nees’ signature pieces is the Schotter (gravel in german). In this series he uses patterns, randomization,…

Art from Code: A Response to Georg Nees

Generative Art has its first exhibition on February 4th, 1965. It held by Max Bense, professor at the University of Stuttgart, and Georg Nees, a mathematician who interested in art….

Art from Code: A Response to Georg Nees

For my responses to Georg Nees, I took the ideas behind his work “Gravel” and incorporated them in my responses. The idea behind “Gravel” are the disruption of a formal…

Art From Code: A Response to Georg Nees

Georg Nees, credited as a pioneer of computer-generated artwork, is renowned for his generative, stochastic style of using computers to create works of art. Through his method, Nees would first…

Art From Code: A Response to Georg Nees

For the first version of this assignment I began with a single circle which then loop into randomness. It transitions from order to disorder. I did this by creating a…

Art From Code: A Response to Georg Nees

For my response to Georg Nees I did three separate instances of a pattern showing random progression. By doing this I was able to experiment with three different formal patterns…
