Spring

Inspired by the amazing flowers and foliage in the spring, I’ve made some 3D art. I really wanted to experiment with how 3D and computational art can mix and match.

I also am inspired by how nature created many of the mathematical patterns we see. The repeating patterns and loops that I make are many times borrowed from them. So it’s only fitting that I make a work that honored plants as a subject matter.

Squares Grid

Experiments in repeating squares in various rotation. Made with Python in drawbot. These viewports are only showing a portion of the whole artwork. I will look into showcasing the whole repeating patterns in some shape or form.

Did some explorations in Cinema 4D to get a feel and to push our visual language.

Breathe

In this hectic world, it’s sometimes tough to remember to breathe. This is my reminder.

I wanted to make something time-based to convey everybody is in a rush, going at various rates in motion.

Breathe, friends. Namaste. 🙏

Tunnel

As a further exploration of the tunnel piece, I wanted to explore how it could translate in the 3 dimensional space. Thought this iteration in Cinema 4D is a nice translation of the original.

Ballio Chan Computational Art Tee Shirt Capsule v0.1 Official Drop

For the past year or so, I’ve been learning and playing with computational art in my free time. Learning Python has been a journey and I’m just in the beginning. Along the way, I’ve made some interesting things as documented on this blog. I’ve handpicked five of my favorites and made them into real shirts! It’s one thing to see the art pieces on a digital screen, it’s another thing to see them printed in digital form — and wear them.

If you like them, please get one! Please tell your friends! I own a few and I think they look great (perhaps biased) and feel really nice (not biased). They’re available in women’s, men’s, and kids’ sizes for the whole family. 🙂 I’m selling them on Amazon for now, and Prime members can get them shipped for free.
