Fabrics 1, 2, & 3

     As an independent study, I did an exploration in computer art and different mediums of form representation. I choose to create an image using the Javascript library p5.js, a port of Processing, to create the basis of the work. Using a simple script that utilizes a underlying Perlin noise field to create an pseudo-random, organic field of crosses. The images created by this algorithm became the inspiration for all other forms of representation. Through four separate sprints, I explored clay sculpture, stamp making, embroidery, and calligraphy. Professor Tim Sauder and artist-in-residence Robert Wechsler assisted my peers and I on the general direction of this project and provided critical feedback throughout.

     The provided image served as the origin of all work created in the sprints of the independent study. I chose to focus on only one piece created by the algorithm to become intimately aware of every detail of the source material. The desire was to have a point of comparison for each work to ground each form to a single source.
