“Better” than Pollock?

Oct 23, 2006 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

Back twenty years ago in high school English class I read or studied, or something, Julius Caesar by George Bernard Shaw. Shaw, as he is called by those who are familiar with him, was something new for us high school students. We were quite familiar with Shakespeare as the school curriculum included one of his […]

The Robot’s Renaissance

Although most labels in the art world have a number of interpretations, I define algorithmic art as artwork made with algorithms. An algorithm is a series of instructions. Usually these instructions are computer commands and algorithmic art is made with computers. But it’s the “mechanical” component that makes algorithmic art special and the machine doesn’t […]

Who would have thought this humble pest would someday take a seat beside the likes of David Copperfield or Martin Chuzzlewit, as The King of the Microbes. One of the most startling events for fans of Charles Dickens this past year has been the recent discovery of an unpublished manuscript, The King of the Microbes. […]

He played the Balalaika

He played the Balalaika… then ate it! I wasn’t quite sure what to do, so I clapped. He wasn’t finished yet. Everyone in the alien dinner theater scowled at me while he started again, from the beginning. I couldn’t see why this guy was such a big celebrity on this planet. Until he started to […]

It’s been ages now since ants took over the Earth, but they still enjoy reliving the old battles. “One small step for an ant, one giant leap for all insects.” Conquering the humans was the defining moment in the civilization of the ants. When they read what we wrote about them in textbooks, they weren’t […]

I walked with Warhol

Hey, how about it? Is this the Campbell Soup Cans of fractals or what? Anyhow, Andy told me, and no one else knows this, that he’s taken all his talent and everything he’s ever learned about art and put it into a single photoshop filter. And he gave it to me, on a diskette. I’d […]

The other machine

Aug 21, 2006 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

It sits there, quietly. Unused but waiting. Sometimes while working on the fractal machine, I look over at it. Our eyes meet. I say nothing and return to the fractal machine. Before I discovered fractals my hobby was making seamless background tiles and web graphics in my graphics progam. I made thousands, maybe ten thousand […]

Download parameter file “bear01.loo” Where is the music? What is the music? It must be jumpy and fast; look at the way he’s dancing. Check out the shoes: He’s a stylish fellow. And that strange flowing white stripe, like a flame, a scarf unfurling from his brain. Hey, he’s got two heads. Cool. In another […]

Download parameter file “water02.ink” Without anti-aliasing the hand-painted effect is greater. Download parameter file “water08aa.ink” But sometimes the anti-aliasing gives a nice, polished, finished look. Download parameter file “water11.ink” They look a bit like maps to me. Old hand-drawn images from the days before computer graphics. Download parameter file “water12.ink” I guess the eye has […]
