Presentation


Overview

In my session, I’ll be showing how the work was created on once-upon-a-forest.com using this idea of dynamic abstraction.

Fundamentally, art/design has been taught as very static process… executing style/method and arriving at an end result. I prefer to write programs (or machines, as I like to call them)… and it’s these programs that generate the compositions for me. With this method, the end result is never static; making room for as many anomalies as possible, every composition generated by the programs I write is unique to itself. I program the “brushes,” the “paints,” the “strokes,” the rules and the boundaries. However it is the machine that creates the compositions — the programs draw themselves.
