Shipibo Pattern

The Shipibo are an indigenous tribe that live in the Amazon Jungle in Peru. During ceremony, a particular pattern is seen and heard by these people as a description of the reality of nature. I have seen it too. The visual pattern is not what is actually witnessed, but an attempt to represent it in…

Vesica Piscis: You, Me, We

A meditative geometric construction of our relationship. This algorithm begins with two congruent circles labeled ‘you’ and ‘me’. The circle can be considered an individual’s entire perceptual awareness. As we become close, the intersection of our awareness is highlighted. This geometric construction is sometimes called the vesica piscis. Then complexity arises, as new ideas and…

Blended Tris

Another algorithm in the Blended Arcs and Blended Ends modality. Recursive regions are filled this time with triangles, eventually becoming tiny villages of computational gnomes. Programmed in ProcessingBy Jared S TarbellIn Albuquerque, New Mexico, USAAround 11:36am November 20, 2019

Blended Arcs

Subdivided regions draw partially completed circles as pie sliced arcs. When stacks of arcs overlap each other, the machine inverts both layers, multiplies them, and then inverts that result. The color then tends to always get brighter, towards white. Blend mode is built into Processing. This is an derivation of Blended Ends. Programmed in ProcessingBy…

Blended Ends

A randomly subdivided quad tree fills the voids with blended lines. Each line is drawn from top left to bottom right, with an offset midpoint and thick colorful halo. The subdivision process builds complexity until resulting regions reach a minimum area. Images are displayed in reverse order of creation. Programmed in ProcessingBy Jared S TarbellIn…
