radial-division II (8987), vivera pigment print on MX1, stretched on a circular frame, 60 cm

radial-division II
is based on image color data, which is plotted on many different polar coordinate systems – radial bar charts.
all the color tables are aligned radially from the largest outer to the inner 0 chart ring with different start and end points.

i started out playing around with different data visualisations. soon i was more and more interested in again manipulating the rather technical output towards my idea of a abstract painting, a certain composition.
so the inherent data visualization function has been used without regard for its numerical output, but rather for the interplay of  colors and positions, which finally build up a my picture composition.

pigment on canvas
200x300cm ( 3 parts)


c-flower is based on a bezier vector curve forming a flower like shape by by rotating it and deforming it by random and/or noise values.
the coloring is made with read out of predefined color map arrays and layering.





curve drawer 1



schorfheide, 2010


the  curve drawer series is based on a vector curve function which reads out a color map or map array and draws in differently occillation structures over the stage, controlled by different mouse action.

based on a rotating bezier curve and color map read out.





de jong


de jong series, 2008

these works are based on the simple Peter de Jong map equations:
x’ = sin(a * y) – cos(b * x)
y’ = sin(c * x) – cos(d * y)

For most values of a,b,c and d the point (x,y) moves chaotically. The resulting image is a map of the probability that the point lies within the area represented by each pixel. As you let it render longer it collects more samples and this probability map and the image becomes more accurate.

barnsley penrose



the barnsley penrose works are made around 2005, using the open source fractal software ultra fractal.
basically barnslay and penrose formulas are used in different other combinations and layers with different transform layer options.go to wikipedia: penrose-tiling
