My first ever generative animation piece, Music is Math, is part of a curated series of films called ‘Projection’, devised by Culture Shock Marketing in partnership with Vimeo to be screened during VOLTA NY in March. I’m also residing presently in NY for the next few weeks
“‘Digital’ or ‘New Media’ art (Computer graphics, Computer animation, the Internet, Interactive technologies, Generative art, Information art, Video art, Robotics and Bio technologies) is often defined through its opposition to ‘Old Media’ art (traditional painting, sculpture etc).
The PROJECTiON initiative views and presents work that has undergone computer/human interaction processes in direct lineage to its cultural predecessors, showing that an expanded digital toolset can lead to an expansion of formal concerns and impulses that can be traced back throughout the canon of art history.”
My agent, Culture Shock Marketing (CSM), have secured a partnership with VOLTA6 – a highly respected and renowned art show in Basel, Switzerland and through this partnership will present my work in a site-specific animation in the show venue, the VOLTA LOUNGE.
Wednesday, June 16th through Sunday, June 20th.

Demo video (Music by Vangelis) of my new app ‘Supernova’, coming soon for iPad, an animated real time visualizer of exploding stars and nebulae.
- Watch stellar visuals in deep space as they slowly expand and contract.
- Based on a pioneering generative animation system by award winning digital artist & programmer Glenn Marshall.
- Complex algorithms continuously generate an infinite variety forms, patterns and motion.
- Perfect as visuals for any kind of music.
- iPad HD graphics quality.
- Inspired by Hubble telescope style photography and Turner paintings.
- Ideal as a cosmic, meditative ‘Aquarium’ for the home.
- Amazing as wallpaper art.
- Use pinch and touch gestures to freely move, zoom and rotate.
- Shake iPad to regenerate random colours.
- Visit the website to see galleries and demo video.

I’ll explain more in future posts as I develop this, but my inspiration comes from abstract vector art you see almost everywhere these days. I want to create a suite of algorithms that automatically generate complex natural, painted brush work and free hand drawn lines – which can then be animated.
At the minute it’s quite random and abstract, but my goal is to create a generative art technology that can produce natural, organic landscapes with flowing painted strokes, and/or solid geometric shapes.
