iteration rect I

89408_ITERATION_line02

 

the herewith used  iteration principle consists of rectangles within a X Y axis grid, which are devided in number,
size and applied with a certain color map and another on/off state. each repetition of the process results in one iteration,
which is used as the starting point for the next iteration. between 6 upto 9 levels are recorded.

different keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

e-pastel 2

32858_e_pastel_14

 

the e-pastel series consists of a X Y axis grid of bezier vector curves. a seperate vector curve class defines all vector properties such as color,
transparency and/or stroke weight. to later position them within different grid arrays.
different keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

depthMatrix

05.07

 

depthMatrix is based on an algorithm, which generates color map dependent diverticulum like reliefs within  a 3 dimensional environment.
this software works with different keyboard input values to compose a rather painting like image out of different color maps.
color values of these map arrays are called by random, noise and/or manual order.

corrosion

corrosive landscape (10), 2009

corrosive landscape is a series of generative works based on landscape photography. during the last couple of years,
living north of berlin, close to the schorfheide, many landscape photos arose.
finally code structures were developed to read color maps and image structures for further generative editing.
the corrosive landscape algorithm generates transparent ellipses, which go virtually into endless width,
merging with each other, creating a paint like horizantal pattern.
the final software works with different keyboard and mouse input values for real time recording.

noise scape 2

41496-NoiseGrid_col_larger_points_square2_small7_2

 

noise scape 2 works with a perlin noise XY structure as noise scape I does, but has additionally another grid value over it.
the application is based on an algorithm, which generates color map dependent line by line sequences of either ellipses or rectangles on a 2 dimensional surface.
this software works with different keyboard input values to compose a rather painting like image out of different color maps. these map arrays are called by random, noise and/or manual order.

 

 

 

 

 

noise scape 1

55564_NoiseGrid_col_03

 

noise scape 1 series is based on a perlin noise XY grid, an array of pre defined color maps and different keyboard and mouse values for recording layered generations.

 

 

 

 

 

star grid

 

 

star grid series consists of a X Y axis grid of bezier vector curves. a seperate vector curve object defines all vector properties such as color,
transparency and/or stroke weight.  the vector object is rotated around “0” to get the star shape and to later position them within different grid arrays.
different keyboard input values are used for a layered image build up.

circulation

29417FlowerCircles_13_grid3

 

the circulation works base on a loop within a loop within a loop principle.
starting point is just one circle, which is turned or circulated around a shifted center.
here it is replicated on a 5×5 XY grid.
there are different values of sine/cosine, random, noise and/or mouse-keyboard inputs for reaching the final drawing.

noise-box

 

 

 

noise-box is a 3 dimensional box raster distorted using a perlin noise function and colored by a color map read out.
it is buid up in different – 2D converted layers to finally export a PDF vector file.

 

 

 

 

 

spinners 2

66904

 

 

the spinners 2 series is another particle system based processing work.
it rules out a repetition  within an XY axis grid using a for loop structure.
the repetition is slightly disintegrated by adding individual noise values.
different keyboard and/or mouse inputs are used for manipulation while recording.

 

 

 

 

 

spinners

the spinners afternoon 2, 2010

 

 the spinners series is another particle system based processing work.
different keyboard and/or mouse inputs are used for manipulation while recording.
