Made this seamless loop animation to urge folks to go vote. Text rendered in Cinema 4D and composited in After Effects.

lines x colors

An experiment in exploring lines and colors. This one is special in that I wanted to play with the different ways how an artwork could manifest in its various forms. From Python code in drawbot. To rendering into bitmap and vector. To animation in After Effects. To 3D spatial structural form in Cinema4D. Each has its own interpretation and emotions to them.

3D artwork inspired by James Turrell

Spiral

The above follow some of my computational art style. I wanted to visualize the spirals emitting light in space, creating various lines and spacial depth.

Foreign land

Both rendered in Cinema4D in 4K resolution.

Artwork from Spring 2020

Below are a collection of my recent artworks in the past few months. Playing with a few new techniques in motion and drawing lines in various colors and forms. Let me know which ones are your favorites in the comments! Thanks for checking them out.

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.

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.
