Fragile Geometry 2-6-5

Generative prints on paper 2019 24"w x 24"h

The forms in this piece, from my Fragile Geomtery series, are 3-D shapes generated with computer code. The generative algorithm can produce a nearly infinite quantity of these images, each unique, by changing three parameters in a series of equations. The resulting calculations determine each form in 3-D virtual space, which is then rendered to a vector image. The natural forms are not human creations but, instead, reveal the inherent natural beauty of numbers. The artist’s “hand and eye” intervene aesthetically only by way of parameter selection and color choices.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
