Every day, from December 2008 to November 2009, I posted content on a Tumblr account to practice programming "generative art" and to explore “principles of form and design”.
14 years later (2023) I rediscovered the account and decided to give the content a more permanent home here.
Do I think the content is good? No – a lot of it is mediocre and low quality. However, it is nice to have a reference of ideas that I had in the past, and to see what worked and what did not.
Press View Content to see the content in chronological order, or Overview to see all the content at a glance.
A lot of the content was inspired by well known artists.
- Pieces like #105, #214, #308, #478, #583, #634 were heavily inspired by Wucius Wong’s book “Principle of Form and Design”.
- Pieces like #156, #166 were inspired by Verner Panton’s “Kurve”.
- Pieces like #62, #70 were inspired by Andy Gilmore.
- Pieces like #419, #424 were inspired by an artist I came across in December 2008 that unfortunately I cannot find the name of.
Other inspiring creators, curators, and Tumblrs include:
Some of the pieces use photographs to sample colors. All of these photos were made by me, with exception for one: Joseph Kittinger's skydive, which is in the public domain, is used in #310, #313, #327, #331, #334, #339, #351, #355.
