ghosts
[Text available only in English] My work uses technology and social mediums to create a dialog through the framework of my practice wherein non-artists can discuss and further this dialog about how they, as a group, relate to the contemporary arts. Our language must of necessity evolve as technology advances; art must evolve to incorporate viewers and technology together. Ghosts is based on a Perlin noise algorithm, a form of randomly generated values that look more organic than traditional random seed values. This approach has been used in computer graphics to do things like automatically creating natural looking landscapes in video games. The computer art I create uses generative algorithms, user interaction, and small, random variations to develop unique views each time the work is visited. I have written the system, but it is the computing device, together with the viewers, which apply their own 'creativity' into the creation of what is seen. It is amazing to me that altering just a few key variables can have drastic affects visually, just as people are connected but infinitely varied. There is beauty in these small differences, these small moments, these defining characteristics and in how we communicate with technology.

Co jest potrzebne

For installation of my project, ideally, I require a computer with a web browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox), internet or local installation of the project files, and a projector to display the project for viewers to see.

Alternatively, I could provide a shorter video capture of the website running. This has the disadvantage of not being interactive and not running live, but could be another option.
