Vertical and Concentric Stripes with Offset

Posted: October 19, 2018 at 6:22 pm

I added some code to randomly offset the whole set of stripes so that compositions can be unevenly weighted from the centre to the edges, or from the left to the right. This increases the variety of compositions significantly. The following images are all generated by the same program with 30 stripes with random offsets that are rendered as circles or vertical stripes. The next step will be to increase the range of possible blur amounts. I’ve also included a few full resolution images: (more…)


Concentric Stripes after Kenneth Noland.

Posted: October 19, 2018 at 3:21 pm

I finished some code that renders stripes as concentrically as inspired by Kenneth Noland. I’ve included a selection with 2 and 30 stripes, respectively. I’m quite happy with these results, but I noticed some aliasing issues with hard-edged stripes and a couple artifacts. Since these are explorations and not written for the target hardware I won’t worry about it yet. I’ve included a couple full resolution images for the new square screen at the bottom of this post.

First Leaning Out of Windows TRIUMF Visit.

Posted: October 9, 2018 at 4:14 pm

On September 28th I was present for the first meeting of the third phase of the Leaning Out of Windows project. I’m really excited about this project as I had previously been inspired by physics in my artistic work (“Engineered“) and have been looking to get back into that body of knowledge. I applied for a few COLLIDE residency awards at CERN over the last couple of years and made video submissions available here and here.

As part of this meeting we did a tour of TRIUMF and I’ll include additional photos from the tour below. The meeting (and tour) were overwhelming to say the least and I still need some time to integrate and reflect. This blog post is devoted my initial musings and some very preliminary project ideas.
