That's just a fancy way of saying I write code that makes art.
That picture up above? That's made with code, and everytime it runs it'll be different.
I wrote an algorithm that draws abstract roses. It made thousands and thousands of images.
Portland's newest creative space wouldn't be very creative without a 3-story tall installation.
A big thing that makes generative art unique is that part of the process is not in the artist's hands. For me, that means I use random numbers a bunch in my work.
Case in point: everytime this website is loaded, it chooses a new image (below, left) and finds the most vibrant color. Then a color scheme is built using that color, shown on the right. Every visit gets a different image and a different color theme. It's always changing!
