Drawing Machines: Found Machines

by Sonia Simon My found machine is the motor of a clock. I’m not sure where the clock went but the motor has lived in my basement for over a…

Drawing Machines: Text Rain and go_crazy

My project was inspired by Camille Utterback’s Text Rain. Utterback works primarily in digital and digital interactive art. Her work ranges from being projected onto building to complex forms of…

Art from Code: Stuck in a Loop

For my Art From Code conference project, I wanted to create a looping, cinematic scene. I got the idea from the class skyline assignment, where we were to create a…

Art From Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

In a report, Hertlein compared the computer art on display and creators present at the 1975 International Conference of Computers and the Humanitites (ICCH) and what was displayed on the…

Art From Code: A Response to Vera Molnár

Vera Molnár, as one of the pioneers of computer art, was really interested in repetition and changing her work one parameter one at a time. As a practice, I have…

Conference Project: Pixelated Memories

Going into this conference project, I really had no idea what I wanted to create. At the beginning of the semester, Angela and I had discussed where my interests laid…

Art From Code: A Response to Georg Nees

This week we were tasked to respond to the thinking of George Nees, a mathematician who became a pioneer in computer arts. He started making drawings with the use of…

Art From Code: A Response to Vera Molnar

Some artists might start out their process toward a work of art with rules, with a grammar, but Vera Molnar tries to develop rules as she goes. These rules are…

Art From Code: A Response to Grace Hertlein

For this assignment I began with a for loop that rotates an ellipse. The ellipse is generate by incrementing a variable in the loop as well as through randomness. The…

Art from Code: A Response to Georg Nees

When examining Georg Nees’s work, I became perplexed with his ability to seamlessly alter his structures using ‘randomization.’ I love the thought of messing with set, orderly structures, however, I…

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…

Art From Code: A Response to Vera Molnár

The images above are my series inspired by Vera Molnár’s work and the concept of gradualism. Coming into this assignment, I thought that I had a clear vision as to…

Art ∞ Code – Climbing Fractal Evolutô

  Nature is unfathomable beyond our imagination. In my humble attempt to re-create natural phenomenons, I gained a deeper awe of its sheer intricacy. One of the most vital rewards…

Art from Code: A Response to Georg Nees

In order to interpret and mimic what Georg Nees did with his art work we first have to understand his ideas and heuristics to do so. Georg Nees was a mathematician…

Art From Code: Beyond 184

It’s all been leading up to this. Let’s have a little urban fantasy. You’re on top of a skyscraper. You look down, and you see the neon world below. It’s…

Art from Code: Little Big Lines

Learning to code this semester has been one hell of a journey. I’m not that proud to say I’ve cried about coding, but I have. There are witnesses. But it…

Art from Code: Molnár Lines

For my conference project, I am further exploring the works of Vera Molnar. She was a pioneer in computer based artwork, having first started by using a plotter. A lot…

Art from Code: Perfect Weather

Like many of my classmates I thrust myself into the great unknown when creating my wallpaper. My process didn’t begin with any fancy sketches or a long overdrawn brainstorm, instead…

Art from Code: Happy Accidents

This project has been one of my favorites thus far.This project came entirely from experimenting with code I was familiar with. I originally only had one pattern that would infinitely…

Art from Code: Adoornments

For this assignment, I spent most of my time just experimenting. I went in with no real idea of what I was going to do, but I just wanted to explore….
