I write computer code that generates art; turning algorithms, binary ideas and digital explorations into a visual consequence of the input. This code results in large-scale, computer-generated digital prints that display the tense visual expression forged from pushing randomness through a rigid rule structure. My practice draws inspiration from understanding the consequences of interconnected and simple rules, resulting in fantastically intricate and subtle visual compositions.
I am drawn to the precision and reproducibility of utilizing computer code to produce artwork and see unlimited potential in working with digital images with pixel-level exactness. I am deeply interested in the idea of control – color and scale within my compositions – as well as relinquishing this control to computational randomness.
My images are not complete until they are actualized in the real world as mounted prints – my preferred medium: prints backed on 3mm Alu-Dibond under matte acrylic glass.
