My artwork attempts to take order, ordered systems and ordered patterns and shake them up. Nothing is perfect, even though things are modeled in perfect mathematics there are always tiny, sometimes microscopic, imperfections. Incorporating these imperfections into pure algorithmic systems creates a sense of order that we crave visually, but provides a warmer more natural feel that is unavailable through equations alone.

Continuing my work with algorithmic abstracts, here, I am using rings of particles and pre-drawn sprites to delicately blend colors together.

This is an Actionscript 3 generated composition.

Data are taken from two images. One is a color map, the other is a bumpmap of sorts. The color map only controls the colors of the stroke.while the bump map controls the width of the stroke, within pre-setlimits.

The motion is primarily controlled via epicyclic motion, inspired byearly attempts by astronomers to make celestial motion make sense in aterre-centric model of the universe. Given enough epicycles and non-rhythic periods, the motion can become quite chaotic and appear to be whooly random.
