My Generative Art Journey
Even though this year has been tough & restrictive, physically & mentally, I’ve learned a lot through the adversities & challenges. One of this year’s perks has been that I’ve once again got a chance to indulge myself in my long lost hobbies like yoga, creating art, cooking, reading, etc. Since the time I’ve commenced my college journey & indulged myself in the realm of computing & programming, I haven’t been able to get enough time to express my feeling & emotions through traditional artworks. Spilling & smearing paint in order to create something visually soothing, whether it is abstract or naturalistic, helps me vent out my negative feelings & emotions.
I’ve always been fascinated with visually appealing artworks, whether it be traditional or digital. This is the reason why I’ve been engaged in further exploring my interests, & one such interest has been Generative Art. Generative Art is a form of art created through the use of autonomous systems, such as algorithms, genetic sequences, machines. Different implementations of these “generative” processes yield a range of results, the aesthetic of the art depends on randomness and chance, which makes every composition unique.
In 2019, I read this interesting article about Generative Art by Jason Bailey, which got me motivated about learning this and exploring it further. Generative art & music have been something I’ve had an eye on for a long time but didn’t get time to engage in, but this year, the so-called “hellacious” year, bought a little light in my life by enabling me to experiment with Generative Art, & further exploring my programming capabilities.
I’m sharing some samples of my artworks on here & hope to create more in the coming future. My interactive work can be found at my Generative Art gallery on Github.
