– artist, curator
Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist uses a system, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention, which is set into motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a completed work of art.
Complex systems typically have a large number of small parts or components that interact with similar nearby parts and components. These local interactions often lead to the system organizing itself without any master control or external agent being "in charge". Such systems are often referred to as being self-organizing.
I create my pieces using computer software and mathematical algorithms modeling a complex system, that can be ordered or highly disordered. This system produce digital images with a certain degree of autonomy through the use of random or pseudo-random data that affect or completely determine the outcome. I use the method of modeling errors and failures that occur in processes that use the program, introducing some amount of chaos in a mathematically exact result, giving it some autonomy.
In my projects I use self-developed software, that can work with big massives of data and generate large digtal images (up to 3 Gigapixels). Images usually print on acrylic glass once. In installations I use light sources controlled by microprocessor, video projection, reflective materials, etc.
