Art From Code: Sing Me to Sleep

I have, for as long as I can remember, always had a very interesting relationship with sleep. Whether it be struggling to fall, failing to do it at all, or getting too much of it, sleep–and all that accompanies it–…

Conceptual Art: Joan’s Arc

For my conference project I had to acknowledge my obsessions, give in to what felt urgent–to what I felt umbilically tied to. I decided to take on a difficult story, one that was gnawing at my conscious, unrelenting in it’s…

Conceptual Art: Finding A Form

This project for me illuminated the inner workings of process and practice, and ultimately by the end, through necessary frustration and confusion, I had a better grasp on the mechanics of making and bringing ideas to fruition. Previously I felt…

Conceptual Art: Protea

My initial idea for our Conceptual Conference project was to take raw footage from an experimental short film I shot out in the Salton Sea area of southern California out in 2017.  The footage was an abandoned project and abandoned…

Conceptual Art: Language Process

My Conference project began with me reflecting on past experiences throughout my life and joking with a few family members about those experiences.  I have dyslexia, a language-based learning difference.  Growing up, I would often, and still to this day,…

Conceptual Art: No Word Was Ever As Effective As a Rightly Timed Pause

Mark Twain Concept Art from the <3 Amid the pandemic and extraordinary times our planet is experiencing, I have recognized that our lives are busy and our minds are even busier. My conference project has stemmed completely from the idea…

Conceptual Art: We’re all out 2020

I first began to flirt with push-pin art at the end of last school year when, bored between classes, I decorated a pub cup with push-pins taken from the room’s jar. In every room in Heimbold, there are push-pins dumped…

Art from Code: A Walk through the Woodway

Imagine you are on your way to see a revolutionary show. You are not quite sure what exactly will happen or who will be there but you are certain that a quality experience is destined to occur. You arrive at…

Conceptual Art: Form Progression

Conceptual Art–Form-FinalConfProgression/ YouLookLikeMyDeadFriend or MakingSomethingOutOfSomethingThatWantsToBeNothing or: a whole thesis on a process in likely more detail than was requested I’ve spent a lot of time over the past…four years? Honestly, I don’t ever remember how long it’s been, because she’s…

Art From Code: The Way Home

My conference project is titled “The Way Home”. I intentionally did not want to just title it “Home”, even though it might seem like the end where the character arrives home is the most important part. To me, the process…

Art From Code: Adventures with Holger Lippmann

Classically trained as a painter and sculpture, Holger Lippmann became enthralled with generative art, and it soon became indispensable to him. In 2007 he “started seriously working with processing.” It had opened him up to a whole new world.  Now,…

Conceptual Art: We Could Be Anyone

The beginning of this conference project started much as many of my other conceptual art pieces had begun: I looked around to figure out what I had to work with. In other pieces, this process manifested in a much more…

Conceptual Art: Finding a Form

The assignment to “find evidence” began as most things in life probably do; confusion. Rather than finding a specific process to try and complete this task, I instead searched for meaning in the topic itself. Assuming I would need to…

Art from Code: My Life in Quarantine: A Graphic Novel

For my conference project, I wanted to create an interactive comic book based on the manga I brought with me to college. At first, I wasn’t sure what I wanted my comic book to be about. I had the opportunity…

Art from Code: Conference Project-Supersonic eye

To be rather frank, I went into this project not knowing what I want to do. I knew I’d like to experiment with something new (be it code syntax, shapes, colors or effects), but coming up with a concept that…

Art from Code: Miami Beach Coaster Club

A look inside my evolving project As I pursue computer science, I am interested to see what directions I can go in with coding. My first idea for my conference project was to build a bouncing jelly bean simulator. You…

Art from Code: Class Response to Grace Hertlein

For our last assignment of the semester, we were inspired by Grace Hertlein, a computer artist who uses nature as a source of creativity. To recreate similar art, we used the Perlin noise function. This is similar to using the…

Art from Code: Conference Project

Culminating in hours and hours of work and a final project I can be proud of, this is my final project. This project began as a side scroller, that needed opposing motion. To complete that particular check-in for our Art…

Conceptual Art: Conference Work

My project came to be from an interest in an idea, word, motion, and or feeling.  I am still unsure how to categorise it, and believe that it can be a part of all, some, none, or something not listed…

Conceptual Art: Conceptual Jewelry

Why I started it? I made artist presentation about Charlene Modena. And I like her conceptual jewelry. I think wearing meaningful conceptual jewelry is very cool. And my ideal career is jewelry designer… Why this topic? My theme for this project…
