Lighting and texture through iteration and interaction
I’m finding that the interaction of several— as little as three—effects can take me far away from the look and feel of whatever I input to the computer. This is even more apparent when I repeat the interaction several times.
Iteration and interaction provide many degrees of separation, producing an entirely new painting whose relationship with its inputs, e.g. the original painting or photo or simple shapes, is virtually impossible to detect.
This gallery focuses primarily on lighting and texture, with inputs ranging from a single black rectangle to complex sketches. The order of paintings is significant since it shows a progression toward iteration and interaction, factoring in more and more effects.
The naming of the paintings indicates a “family” (the letter and first number) with its various siblings (second numbers), e.g. n33 and n34 are related in terms of input.
