A collection of my recent graphic experiments in the past few months of 2019.
Playing with a few rotated lines to create a circle. Mostly color studies here. Something cool I discover is that the moire pattern in these graphics create a nice vibration when you scroll the page. This reminds me of the genius SONOS rebrand by Bruce Mau Design that uses computation pattern to visualize sound.
Inspired by Bridget Riley’s works. I started experimenting with squares that are slightly rotated and tiled, which creating some weird optical illusion when moved.
Made this piece as a cover for our 2018 family holiday card. The idea here is making a piece of art with our last name 陳 (Chan) written out 2018 times.
Back at it for more circles drawbot fun. Playing with just using a circular shape and looping it many times with different rotations.
Playing with rotation and colors here.
Sort of a meta design. Using the unique shapes of Caslon, trying out some animation techniques of text fitting into paths made with type in drawbot. It was pretty cool that Ace Hotel retweeted it!
This time, I was inspired by Josef Albers’s “Interaction of Color” For this exercise, I was experimenting with using random()for various fills and the type. I was also trying to see how animation, timing, and frame rate works in drawbot. Lots to explore and play with. This reminds me of one of my favorite books […]
I’ve been drawing computationally with Drawbot in Python 3 out of John Maeda’s encouragement and teachings. Much gratitude to John… I’ve been posting some work-in-progress on Twitter, but thought it’d be nice to post it on my blog too as a nice collection of trials, experiments, fails, surprises, and some really cool things that came […]
