My pieces are generated by math codes, but they look like natural things, trees, plants, flowers, landscapes.
I want to find similar artworks so that we can discuss and enhance each other.
I'm taking Advance Statistics now. I get regular headaches and my brain is now escaping regularly and I have to stop and chase it down and put it back. Math is inherently evil. That being said, math generated art is very cool!
GuoJan - are you looking for all types of math generated art, or just math generated art that looks similar to yours? There are a lot of Fractals on this site.
@ H Drew, No not yet i am using linear function, random acceleration curve, power function, trigonometric, Perlin noise for 2d random ......
@ Rachel , I know artist using another brain, I often hovering at both ends it makes me very early age troubles.
@Roy Erickson I am a programmer, i create a small program just for every image.
@Roseann i see many fractals, i love these work, but i am not like them, my stuff always look like something, i think this is very important for me to get new ideas from nature. So i even think 3D styles are more hopeful to create more stuff.
@ H Drew I love this pic as alchemist style, I love that time when science has not that developed, people always have a chance to find very strange things.
In fact i ofen think about creating something with some interesting story, but now i think that is a basic idea to expression ideas, the most important ideas are all abstract they are everywhere, they are in trees, landscape, human ......
So i just create things in my math world and i think i can expression anything i want.
@ GuoJun: "the most important ideas are all abstract they are everywhere, they are in trees, landscape, human"; That's why I asked if you use the Fibonacci Sequence. it is found everywhere in nature. I have studied math & the sciences at a relative high level and it has intrigued me when it is use intentionally or appears accentually in art.
@H Drew thank you very much, I love this one. I will try Fibonacci Sequence.
You know words are more powerful than images, like space - time in Relativity, you can just understand it by equation but you can not imagine what it looks like.
@ GuoJun: The Nautilus shell is a great example of the Golden Ratio.
This screen print is very close to the Golden Ratio; at the time of creation, I was not failure with the said ratio but I was very interested in merging mathematics with art. The spiraling staircase was a 3d projection using a technique described by Filippo Brunelleschi. It is basically ray-tracing old-old-old school(to this day I still have the disintegrating graphical projection). During my research for this project, and after its design, I discovered the Golden Ratio and realized several of my designs were very close approximations of the golden mean. This was in about 1985 or so. I also was very interested in Escher's prints and learned some print making techniques.
They organize the exhibits at the annual Joint Mathematics meetings and they also host an annual International mathematical art Conference and exhibit.
There are no application fees and no exhibition fees for artists. They have a print catalog and online archives for each event (artists get a free copy). They pay return shipping of artwork and they give cash prizes at the joint math meeting exhibit.
The only requirements are a fairly high level of artistic accomplishment and a fairly high level of mathematical sophistication.
So basically no reason not to join for someone who actually understands and manipulates the algorithms and codes they use.
If you can showcase the math in your work descriptions, they'll love it. And you'll find lots of artists developing algorithms and mathematicians and scientists developing art collaborations. Should be a good fit.
I am not clear why i can not find people create images like my way, or their works are pure abstracts.
I should say i create one image every one or two days, I don't know whether i should make more in order to sell one day. I think this is a good way to create things, far beyond reality even imagination.
That's very interesting, GuoJun!!!!
I wish I knew more about the programming side, but I'm still learning - and most others I think are limited more due to using already available software.
Since you make your own, you have total free reign! That's wonderful! And it creates a truly unique style of art - you not being able to find too many other similar styles is a good thing!!!
Since you're a programmer you might also want to look into the Boston Cyberarts group. They're based in Boston with strong MIT ties, but they have calls for algorithmic art that are national and international. if you contact them they may know of similar initiatives in your area.
They have periodic conferences and ties to special interest subgroups that create imagery from algorithms.
@Betsy Thank you for your kind words, for art unique style is a good thing, but here i want to sell my stuff and i want to learn other people's experience, and improve my work. So i need find them.
@Regina Thank you for telling me this group, i will read the details, and maybe i should call my work " algorithmic art " too, I think create beautiful images using math codes or hand drawing or softwares, all have that advantages and disadvantages. So " algorithmic art " is a type in art area.
There's a software known as "KnotPlot" which creates images (usually knot oriented) based on mathematics. I did some designs a while back for 3D stereo purposes. I have not uploaded many on FAA because I was saving at low resolution at the time. Here are some low res anaglyph examples but to view them correctly you will need Red/Cyan filtered 3D glasses...
@Brian, Sometimes i want to try fractal softwares or 3D Max, every time i see the complex UI, and so many buttons, I am quit! I want to make things simple and depth inside and most of all freedom independence.
