abracadabra

abracadabra 82247

the abracadabra series is made with a set of square frames using processing svg load. the disableStyle(); function is used for code based coloring and the getChild(); function
for individual coloring of polygon parts out of one multi poligonal svg file. it uses an svg array list. the iteration algorithm is dividing
a shape down within a x-9 level loop. each repetition of the process is also called an “iteration”. the results of one iteration are used
as starting point for the next iteration. a whole bunch of commands are either random and/or on keyboard/mouse action for recording…

iteration / structural condensation

22

“structural condensation”  nov. 2013  (english version first)
looking back at my accomplishments over the last years, i recognise apart, from various formal approaches, a continous drive for structural condensation.
for structural condensation up to a point where the shapes begin to apparently depart from their usual meanings and are not clearly perceptible anymore.
In this structural void an entirely new pattern for composing comes into being – an abstraction of fissuring and reformation.
seen in a sober and technical manner, one may perceive the eternal balancing of meaning, magnitude, colours, shades and properties in order to make out a sound in this ravaged chaos.
most like to walking a tight-rope with concrete and depictive dynamics on one side and the white noise of ambientesque or tranceesque rhytmical harmony on the other.
