Systemic abstractors versus the pubic realists
Generative art / Algorithmic art -- Time based image originally designed for full HD 1080p.
I have been experimenting with the idea of conflict within a generative work. With programmatic or generative art it is difficult to capture the essence of struggle in a work that occurs in traditional mediums such as drawing or painting. In this work objects draw, abstract and erase while struggling with each other for control of the image.
These video samples are scaled down from 1080p:
With programmatic art it is difficult or at least non-intuitive to capture the essence of struggle in a work. It is easy and often desirable to create optimized accurate algorithms that do exactly what you want them to do. If the programming is accurate there is never a need to erase. The obvious programmatic erasure is total deletion leaving no trace of what was there before. This project experiments with what happens when we try the non-obvious. We create algorithms that loosely render an image and then try to self correct the errors by erasing with a loosely accurate eraser. The hair particles are an ideal choice for a drawing tool. Because the hair grows erratically it will always grow out of bounds requiring an erasure. The eraser leaves remnants of what was there before, evidence of a struggle.
"Systemic Abstractors vs. Pubic Realists" is an exploration of conflict within a generative art work.
In "Systemic Abstractors vs. Pubic Realists" there are several classes of program objects that battle on the image area for dominance and control of space. The systemic abstractors abstract what has already been drawn. They plot out a rectangle of space and create a concentric pattern based on pixel values surrounding them. The pubic realists are autonomous particles that grow hair and attempt to loosely render an image with a configurable degree of realism. The third class of objects are the erasers. There are two types of erasers, block erasers and hair particles that mutate into gray hairs. This class of objects evaluate the lighter areas of the source image and loosely determine whether the are is too dark. If so, the erasers erase.
