    January 2021 artworks

    Time for another roundup of my recent computational artworks from the past couple months. Let me know which one is your favorite in the comments. ✌🏼 Thanks for checking them out! 🙏🏼

  • lines x colors

    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…

    Recent graphics experiments in January and February of 2019

    A collection of my recent graphic experiments in the past few months of 2019.

  • Lines > Circle

    Lines > Circle

    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.

  • Rotated squares

    Rotated squares

    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.

  • 2018 Chans

    2018 Chans

    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.

  • Circles experimentations

    Circles experimentations

    Back at it for more circles drawbot fun. Playing with just using a circular shape and looping it many times with different rotations.

  • Calder set in Caslon 422 set in Futura

    Calder set in Caslon 422 set in Futura

    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!

  • Juno + Ballio

    Juno + Ballio

    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…
