Artist Statement:


    Swimming Pool was created from simple tiling elements that are permutated together. Each tile is a cell in an automaton which develops over time according to some simple rules. The resulting image was a vector graphic, or line artwork, that was subjected to a number of continuous tone raster graphics filters to create the coloured and textured surface that composes the final print.

    Rather than being constructed or designed, these works “evolve.” I look forward to a future where computational processes like the ones I build will themselves make artworks without the need for human intervention. The creation of such processes is something that has always fascinated me. Swimming Pool is just one route marker from the journey so far.
