Back to Basics is a series of works reflecting on a lifelong interest in number theory and mathematical
graphics programming. The works were produced at the latter end of 2013 though the computer
code written was based on code constructed back in 1985 when the Commodore Amiga
was launched facilitating art and music possibilities previously only available to large
corporations. The output produced is based around the concepts of number theory
and trigonometric functions inhabiting a world where science and art collide.
One Dimensionals is a series of meditative works. The works were produced over a five year
period and were inspired by a series of long coastal walks around the UK. The process was
carried out by filming through a one dimensional slit in order to see what the 3 dimensional
world might look like from the perspective of a one dimensional being. Maths functions
were then applied to these images in order to produce printable 2 dimensional
representations. Please click on any image to view the complete
series of works.
Something From Nothing is a series of exploratory works. The works were produced over a one
year period and were initiated by way of a happy accident. A scan was made without anything
in the scanner. The resultant image showed that there was a lot of detail hidden in the
scanned image. It got me thinking about where art and everything actually comes
from. The process was repeated and other ways of extracting something from
nothing were attempted. This included photographing dark skies, lens
cap on photos and scanning empty objects and surfaces.
