Paint to Programming

From left to right: Owen Fernley, Sarah Friend, Bernardo Palacios Muñiz and Julia Krolik. Moderated by Roberta Buiani. Organized by Julia Krolik.

This talk was part of Paint to Programming, a collaboration between Art the Science and ArtSci Salon. The panel focussed on creating algorithms for science art and featured four presentations and an open discussion.

  • Julia Krolik - Exploring algorithms in SciArt
  • Sarah Friend - Software as a medium
  • Owen Fernley - Audio visual algorithms
  • Bernardo Palacios Muñiz - Modern painting: A fluid mechanics perspective

In Audio visual algorithms, I describe two algorithms from Visitations and Revisitations, an audio visual performance that was recently completed. The first describes how to stitch together a circular waveforms according to its resonate frequency and radius, while the second describes the process behind building geometric flowers (pictured below).
