Below is a series of digital artwork I created using a seed randomizer algorithm. My intention initially was to create the piece with exactly one million possible unique configurations (permutations) and to use that as a way to number the works within the series; each one being a unique piece of art.
I quickly found out that I reached 1,000,000 in no time at all (and without much visual interest) so I decided to increase the complexity in order to acheive the aesthetic I was after.
Above is a schematic of the math using Grasshopper for Rhino. The result turned out to be a very interesting exercise on the impact of exponential growth. For the number of permutations present is greater than the amount of known elementary particles in the visible universe.
Each poster in the series is numbered and represents one of (5^5)^320 possible unique configurations.
