1044 – NataJenne
NataJenne’s Circles set combines recursive structures with circle packing to produce a set of compositions reminiscent of bubble aggregations, albeit with a synthetic ordering based on simple rule-sets. ‘1044’ relies on a considered choice of colours together with an algorithm that adds new circles which are aware of their predecessor’s direction (creating branching structures). Also recommended is the Mazes set where nodes and paths conspire to produce complex diagrams and schemas.
Veaone’s Experimental works09 set also shares a affinity for rarefied and subtle colour palettes. The works appear to examine an interplay between order and abstraction, gridded underlying structures break into rivlets and flows. The works have the feel of a mix between geological illustrations of earth morphologies and the exploding architectural plans of a wild style graffiti.
Toxi aka Karsten Schmidt reveals a repurposed Processing sketch orginally from 2003. Fieldlines explores ‘the beauty of tracing a simple process over time’ and as toxi adds it is ‘one of the standard design patterns in generative art’. On inspection the lines appear to demarcate invisible forcefields. Charged nodes appear to dissapate or attract energy, visualising vortices and filaments of an unseen force. A couple tags on the work reveal that Fieldlines is a visualisation of magnetic dipole phenomena.
