︎︎︎ Generative art is performed by mathematical algorithms that were written by the artist. The artist’s role is to create an autonomous system and define algorithms according to which the art is being created.
The Generative 101 example is the Kaleidoscope. The person is controlling the visual, but the algorithm has been created beforehand. Just like the kaleidoscope, the generative art complies to the mathematical theory of chaos.
This generative art experiment reminded me of the great work of Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, whose legacy relied on the excess of using white color and curve forms. Later, it inspired me to make a poster in his homage.
Experiment made via Processing.
Generative art is always moving and changing, so you can only see some frames of it.
