Geometric diagrams use the visual features of specific drawn objects to convey meaning. Cartography, the science or practice of drawing maps, has been a useful tool even before we had cities. What do these have to do with mark-making, painting, drawing and art at all? Media art practices can be defined as the decision or systems artists use to make their art.
In this workshop we will explore the history of algorithmic image making — from sacred (and ancient) Islamic math-based art to the introduction of the computer and evolution into contemporary practices. This will be followed by an investigation into what this means for such artists as: Sol LeWitt, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and Stefanie Posavec.
An introduction to media practice would not be complete without a medium. Through the use of a simple program we will explore a data visualization with the objective to gain a bit more understanding of media practices through algorithmic image making.
