The JPG EXPERIMENTS became an exploration in coding. I am inspired by Big Data, Geometry and Algorithms. I want to explore ways to express myself through the medium of code in these areas of interest. This project was really an exercise for me to answer this question: How can I use this inspiration to express myself artistically?
The first iteration and project proposal can be found in this blog post.
Here is the presentation for this project.
I attempted to make a data visualization in OF and using ofxInstagram add-on. I actually found a bug in the add-on code so I was not able to complete my project using OF. But, I ended up working with the developer of this add-on to fix the bug.
I also wanted to experiment with producing physical objects as an output of the screen-based code. I experimented with printing and laser cutting on paper and wood.
Visual screen based outcomes:
Physical object outcomes:
