SEED variations

Online exhibition of dynamic sketches from our newly coded form generator

October 2014

Channel Normal is an online exhibition space that focuses on time-based works. They have invited us to display some generative artwork this October.

We are presenting SEED variations. These variations were created algorithmically. We filmed ourselves using a video camera and then wrote a Java program which split these sequences into frames and then added them onto a master sequence applying tinting, rotation and movement. More and more frames were added until an overall form emerges which resembles a seed, a flower or a grain of pollen. Each sequence contains something like 30000 frames.

The underlying structures here were based on Spirograph forms, with embellishments driven by user defined parameters. Swap the plastic wheels for naked figures and you get the idea.
