A&HA 5128: Periodic Update #2


Agnes Martin – After a conversation about procedural art and my generative coding experiments with my course instructor (Hi Erin!), she mentioned Martin’s work. It’s new to me and I’m really excited about it! She was an abstract painter with a keen knack for grids and procedural, repetitious forms that I think would be perfect to explore in my own visual programing experiments.

The bulk of my time in studio this week was devoted to experimenting with generative art in Processing. Coding pieces that conform to the WOVNS platform constraints of resolution and color. This single piece I’m sharing below is one execution of a script that randomly assigns colored squares and prescribes exact bottom and right border patterns. I’m inspired to research more geometric artists and weaving patterns.
