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….

Drawing Machine: Scratch

My conference work for this semester is a coded drawing machine. The mouse works as an eraser, which makes the black cover transparent and expose the colorful bottom plate. The uncovered parts is what viewers draw. The bottom plate is…

Drawing Machines: 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…

Digital Tools for Artists: Cloudbirth

When I signed up to take this course, I knew that I ultimately wanted to learn digital art skills that could pair with the electronic music that has been my primary artistic practice for the last couple of years. Since…
