Art from Code: Dreamscape for the Age of Aquarius

This project aims to generate a dreamscape composed of a compilation of images found from various online sources and some from my own camera roll. This cross over between online scavenging and personal sources meshes together elements that are both…

Art From Code: It Does Not End With A Line

I have always loved the manifestations of line drawings; it is fascinating to me that the meaning of each drawing is expressed beyond just some simple lines. As I began coding, I wanted to do line drawings with code to…

Art From Code: Choo Choo In the Snow

My Sidescroller of a train really helped open a path to get to my goals. I decided early this year I wanted to try and become a game dev, and while I had done some other interactives, this was one…

Art From Code: Hearth and Heart

The inspiration of this piece comes from a meme.  It is a picture of a man who has put several tuba parts on various limbs, and is posing like a knight. This meme spawned various tracks which combined the Tuba,…

Art From Code: Scaredy Cat

This code project aims to digitally manifest a dream world in which my cat, Tofu, is the protagonist. When run, the code generates a room featuring various furniture and fixtures that I imagine my cat would choose if decorating her…

Art from Code: Doeheaded

Growing up, I had a lot of problems. I still do. Mental illness plagued my life. It weighed on me immensely, and sometimes I feel so suffocated by it, it’s almost like I’m wearing a mask or helmet, blurring my…

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–…

Art From Code: Right Down the Middle!

by Nina Brown As soon as I discovered the concept of a conference project the first thing that came to my mind was designing some sort of video game. As my familiarity with coding increased and my ability to bring…

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,…

Art From Code: Oil and Lavender

For my conference project, I wanted to explore the feeling of being in a car during a long road trip. This concept may seem simple enough, yet through the creation of this project I discovered how complex the idea became. …

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: Molnar’s Gradualism and the Quest for Mathematical Beauty

I am not very good at math. Some would say that I am, in fact, a menace when it comes to anything more than simple addition. However, I am constantly fascinated by the way math and art combine in code,…

Art from Code: Molnar and Repetition

My previous article (Art from Code: Time, Space, and Spacetime), analyzed the heavily debated question: is computational art really art? If we dig deeper into the debate between computer generated art and conventional art, we’ll find the more nuanced argument…

Art From Code: A Response to Vera Molnar

After reading about Vera Molnar’s art making process of starting with a base code and then altering one aspect of the code (a variation of one parameter), I have come to view repetition in a new way. I’m realizing that…

Art From Code: Understanding the works of Vera Molnar

Working in the realm of computer designed art using coding opens your eyes to a new world of possibilities because any idea you form can be presented digitally with a few clicks of a button. Anything your creative mind desires…

Art From Code: A Response to Vera Molnar

Repetition can be tedious, like when you’re working at a desk every day. It feels like you’re doing the same thing over and over. However, repetition can become something great, like when you go for a walk every morning. From…

Art from Code: Molnar Gradualism

The repetition of each loop I created are not dull and monotonous purely because they are repetitive in their nature. Instead, they are creative and lend themselves to meaning with each repetition. They grow and build off each other to…

Art from Code: Understanding Repetition and Routine through Molnar

The word repetition dates back to Latin roots and by defintion, it means the action of repeating something that has already been done. Molnar’s practiced style of repeating is similar to a pyshcological idea Freud presented in 1914. Repetition Compulsion…
