One of the questions I often get after someone has taken a moment to look at my artwork is "where do you get the ideas in your paintings". SOURCE CODE is my answer.
Source code can be many things but we mostly define source code as a collection of computer instructions or programming that dictate an operation or task, creating a unique language or signature. Source code starts as a text series of basic tasks or commands and then when compiled, creates a fully executable program. My source code is very similar. In a vast collection of my artwork, I try to convey a simple statement which is "Art, Math, Music, Science and Chaos ... a culmination of destruction, creativity and balance." This very statement is actually stated in binary code (computer lingo) in this painting. From there, we add each one of these stated elements. Starting on the right side of the painting, there are (3) mathematical equations. 1. Mandelbot Set which represents Life. Within this simple equation there is a never-ending, infinite pattern that creates life, showing that simple processed can result in infinite complexity. |
2. Hydrostatic Equilibrium. This particular equation represents Preservation, which is balance between the crushing gravity and expanding pressure inside a star. Without the opposing forces, one will fail resulting in destruction of the overall.
3. Entropy. This equation measures the randomness of disorder in a system, therefore measuring a state of being from it's beginning to it's final state, or the end. As you will notice, these (3) equations surround the Delta symbol, which represents Change. On the left side of this painting, there is a string of music notes representing the Music in my earlier statement. The composed notes are from the band Tool's song "Lateralus". This particular song has a very unique musical arrangement, as it's notes follow the Fibonacci sequence. Lastly, PI is used as it is the irrational number. PI is never ending and forms a concept that perpetuates all signatures, details, and infinite possibilities throughout art, music, math and science and life itself. With that, I give you my Source Code. |
