nostalgia-algorithm (gen-draw II)

nostalgia-algorithm / gen-draw II is a generative drawing work-series i’m already on for quite a while. it’s based on an automated RGB value dependent curve (bezier) drawer. by using different photos, either within a random array or run by manual order (keyboard), i’m weaving image layers or parts of images together.
with the mouse i control the curve radius and stroke width. so the whole process is kind of an action painting, mixing forms and colors and structure, very speedy. mostly it produces much trash, a few to keep…
the motifs came together during my walks in the lake district of brandenburg, north of berlin, during the great summer of 2018.

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.

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.
