Non Linear Oscillations

Starting with a point and some numbers, my program generates another point, and another from that one, repeating until an image emerges a few million points later.

My Profession: Art
About my work:
I have written computer graphics software for many years. One of my personal projects is a program that creates or modifies digital graphics. I have assembled it over many years from ideas in books and magazines, routines written for clients or borrowed from other programs, or just ideas about how to create a particular form or effect.

My medium is not the print or the computer screen. It is the structure and methods that make up the program.

The driving force in the program design is connection. The program deconstructs images and reassembles them to highlight relationships. It builds landscapes from color or brightness or the relationships between objects and renders them as though from high above. Or it generates forms simply from elementary mathematics that take a single point and transform it into a miniature galaxy, a winged beastie, or a strange, monstrous thing floating in the space between 0 and 1, between Nothing and Everything.

My process is twofold. One part is building the program: Combining ideas, structuring the flow of data and calculation, and building the user interface. There is an existential pleasure in this, as I think through the branches of logic and envision the possible result. The other part is working with the program. I pull in images and play with them, or just pick numbers and relationships and then let the program work, not really knowing what will appear on the screen. And then doing it again, just a bit differently. Eventually I just know the image is finished. Then either I save it or throw it away.

Then every so often I go back to change the program and try it all over again.

The Abstract gallery here contains images made from photographs, hand drawn images, or just empty canvas, which have been deconstructed by changing the RGB color model to another one and subjecting one or more channels to local or global functions, then converting back to RGB.

The Non-Linear Oscillations gallery here has images, each of which each start with 1 point. This point is input to a set of equations which generate another point. The process is repeated until a figure emerges, a few million points later. There are no real objects in these images, just points. If you see something there, you may want to consider why.

(Posted images are greatly reduced resolution due to upload size limitations.)
