Drawing Machines: Wave Simulator

Wave Simulator In physics a wave can be thought of as a disturbance or oscillation that travels through space-time, accompanied by a transfer of energy. It could be described as oscillations or vibrations. There are different types of waves, it…

Drawing Machines: Birthday Candles

I created a pendulum ink dropper that creates pieces by distributing ink across the page by swinging back and forth. It features a pendulum cup mechanic that is filled with ink and distributes that ink while swinging through a metal…

Drawing Machines: Media Distortion

This work is a series of four printed collages. Each is unique in subject matter, but they are all primarily made from images found in National Graphical magazines that have been composited through a digital scanner and digital image editing….

Drawing Machines: Zoetrope Reimagined

In creating my conference project, I went through so many failed experiments and confusing trials. It wanted my project to both look good and work well as a machine and it was much easier said than done. As someone who…

Art from Code: Amusement Park Rides

My final project of Art From Code is Amusement Park. I chose this as my final project because I was interested in the interactive check-in and I got inspired by the amusement park check-in that we did earlier in the…

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 moving skyline, looping hopefully seamlessly from one end of the…

Cultural HiJack: The Barbara Walters Center Hijack

The idea for my conference project this semester first evolved from the Barbara Walters Campus Center, which opened this fall. This was, the school claimed, a new hub for its students so that there is an indoor space where the…

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 static mode, coding each triangle in a different colour.

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. Specifically, their movement and shape was what interested me. I…

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 pieces of code to work with and combine: one was…

Systems Aesthetics: A Final System: Filters

My final conference project is called Filters. This was a long and hard journey to get here but I am very happy with the end result. I first found interest with the camera function and using the camera library to…

Systems Aesthetics: A Final System: Collision Game

For the first check-in of our systems class, I made a simple video game that goal was to get to a checkpoint while avoiding collisions with different obstacles, in the background, I put the png of a cyber- city sky….

Systems Aesthetics: A Final System: Glitch It

For this final system conference project, I was inspired by the check-in assignment we did for the pixel sorting, the research we did on Rosa Menkman in class, and the reading we did on Found Systems As Glitch Culture by…

Drawing Machines: Immobilized Strandbeest

The final result of my conference work is the crippled strandbeest. The beest, created to be a kind of evolutionary step, is a husked body with the ability to move freely about. In the final chapters of our book, Brockeman…

Systems Aesthetics: A Final System: mommy n me

For “Art From Code” last semester, my conference project explored software mirrors and live video feeds. I realized early on in the semester that this piece was already a sort of system: 1) it never became an object as much…

Drawing Machines: Stars

My conference project is very different from my original outline and plan. When I presented the original project it was meant to be a variation on the game Flower, which is an online stress reliving game in the same vain…

Systems Aesthetics: A Final System: Let-It-Fly

I conceived of this project when I was playing with children’s puzzle pieces. I wondered: ‘These puzzles are clearly a system. They take on similar visual forms that are lucidly defined, yet contain distinct information. The shapes compliment each other,…

Drawing Machines: Exploded Nest

I am going to construct a hanging, nest-like installation made of found branches, sticks, ivy, and dried flowers. I will hang vine charcoal from the branches, using a pendulum-like motion to create a drawing on a piece of newsprint that…

Drawing Machines: Spinning Wheel

For my conference project I will be making a spinning wheel. I was attracted to this idea after doing a bit of research and coming upon this machine that someone created, which then prompted me to want to recreate it….
