Screaming Algorthms

I have always loved the kind of art and ideas that really push the boundaries and transcend their material properties...


Being arrested by a JMW Turner in the London National gallery when I was about 10 was probably the first time I ever felt this sort of deep resonance...


Though I did not know what it was then, later I tried to rationalize and understand this sort of feeling and why I only really felt it from real, physical things - music, paintings, events...


I also loved digital art - though I could never understand the difference between these two sorts of enjoyment, why I would be looking at digial work that was incredibly skillfully made and yet not feel anything like the sort of depth I did for their physical, traditional analouges...


What I have continually found fasinating about my favourite artworks is the mastery of raw expression alongside analytical and intellectual understanding of the subject and media. The irrational and rational - the human heart and the human mind....


To me computers and algorthms open up a vast unexplored territory for continuing the development these artists set into motion. We have the ability now to make material our own in more ways than just spatially composing them - opening up the painter's palette to time and behaviour and who knows what else...


Though we have primarily used the computer as a means of production more than anything, we can't let this potential pass us by or be blindsided by our limited uses of it...


I have yet to see a digital work that screams like a Francis Bacon, have you? (I'd seriously like to know, comment below if you have.)


I love digital work and I love physical work. I love painting and I also love programming.

And like anything one loves, you only really want what is best for it so it can grow to it's full potential...
