Generative Art

Inspired by a blog post I decided to purchase a 1980's pen plotter and get into the world of generative art

my HP7550A pen plotter

After taking some online classes I set up an instagram to showcase my art: goodbad.png. This led to an invitation to an online community of generative artists to share work and methodology for creating certain effects

After sharing my work for several months I was being accepted to showcase my art at the local library for a month with an exhibition for the public. This was unfortunately canceled due to COVID-19 but was promising recognition from the public at large

Here is my artist's statement about the generative work:

good bad plotting is a showcase of generated geometric structures, which I disrupt to create snapshots reminiscent of the natural world. I guide their creation using repetition, symmetry, and reoccurring patterns. My work embraces exploration and discovery, often following unintended paths to get to the result. The code is written by myself primarily in JavaScript, and I then trace it to paper using a modified 1980's Hewlett-Packard pen plotter.
