I continue to work with the grid theme, adapting code from the Wireframe sketch. The pink overlaying shapes, or what loosely take the form of flowers, is adapted code from the shape example presented in the Generative Design book. The combination of pseudorandomness with user interaction has been an ongoing aspect of exploration throughout this project. Computer as collaborator or co-performer, enabling what artist and technologist Amelia Winger-Bearskin describes as being able “to do things that I couldn’t do by myself and being able to collaborate with machines meant that I could do things I do poorly faster and then do things that machines do poorly better.” I have never been good as drawing or painting, but working in code enables me to compose in a 2D space without a camera. Computers, at least at this stage, are only capable of doing what they are programmed to do, so I invite the capacity to engage with the computer as an aesthetic encounter (via Simondon), introducing a pause into the interaction with the interface.
