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 who was a student of Bense in the University if…

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 beautiful, it’s alive. And I wanted to capture that. To…

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 has been a worthy experience, and an important one.  I…

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 of her works represent or came out of gradualism –…

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 I went straight to the internet and began perusing wallpapers…

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 expand. My original intention was to create a perimeter for…

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. I really didn’t sketch much because I jumped right into…

Art from Code: Modulated Synthesis

My attitude towards this assignment was radically different from my attitude towards the previous assignment. I was inspired by our classroom experiments in combining both for-loops and the mod function. I was also inspired by Josef Albers’ usage of colors…

Art from Code: Circling Pink

I began the process of creating my scrolling wallpaper by setting up the initial elements I would utilize for the final product. I was inspired by a 70’s aesthetic of looping circles. As a fan of the French New Wave,…

Art from Code: Nice to Look At

Okay, so loops have kicked my ass. Well, coding is kicking my ass, but here I am, trying. And not trying hard enough, but trying nonetheless. This project seemed like a fun idea, but when introduced to all the new…

Art from Code: Rainbow Madness

This one is all color, and a whole lot of experimentation. While with my last prompt, I had an idea from the beginning, the only thing I knew about this one is that I’d like to have a lot of…

Art from Code: BeeConstruction

When we got the assignment to create a collage, it took me a long time to decide what theme I wanted to work with. But after several hours of watching a playthrough of the game Cuphead, in which a queen…

Art from Code: Anti-Violence

I knew at the beginning that I wanted to have my collage be about this new headspace I feel that I’m in right now. After a serious car accident in January that forced me to take a semester off, and…

Art from Code: Virtue and Vice

My collage began with a brainstorm of words and associations, held together by the single narrative of vice and virtue. Having just finished the Odyssey in my literature seminar, I was struck by the physical and psychological pleasures and seductions…

Art from Code: The L Words

I’ve made many collages in my life. I’ve always enjoyed cutting out images from magazines or flyers, taping them to the lid of a shoebox and finding satisfaction in the collection of visuals. Making collages always felt very personal, I…

Art from Code: A Hedgehog Goes on a Walk in a Big Forest

Once upon a time, there was a Hedgehog who wanted to go on a walk. Why did the Hedgehog want to go on a walk? He didn’t really have a reason. It’s just what the Hedgehog wanted to do for as…

Art from Code: Hole in the Sky

Already having been behind in Art from Code, I realized that my outlook towards this assignment stipulated an effective strategy. After talking with some people, I decided to try to capture a poem that I had already written in the…

Art from Code: Danger Zone

My first instinct with this assignment was to write “this is a collage” and turn that in, in true Rauschenberg style. But then I decided to give it a shot and see what I could come up with. The assignment…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

When I began working on this assignment, I wanted to create a dynamic and interactive image that reflected a part of my personality while taking inspiration from Paul Klee. I noticed that in Klee’s self-portrait, his face is divided into…

Art from Code: Self-Portrait

I started this project by trying to build a semi-realistic representation of my facial structure. But, after some experimentation I decided that a simple representation would serve the same purpose without the mess of ellipses and triangles. The square with…
