Form shapes content

In the book, 101 Things To Learn in Art School, Kit Long wrote that "The medium is the artwork's first identity. It is secondarily about what it depicts. Form shapes content."

Art created using software will necessarily be different than art created using acrylic paint or other traditional media. We should embrace it and search for content that is well suited for software.

What are the constraints of art created using software? What are the liberating advantages of using software to create art?

Rising tide

Another experiment with line composition. In this animation, a line is randomly drawn horizontally and the color is filled in below it. The lines start at the bottom and moves upward until it reaches the top, then, it starts again from the bottom.

City streets

Line composition leads naturally to the grids of modern city streets. This animation is formed from selecting a point on the left or right side of the image. At the start of the animation, an angle is randomly selected and the second angle is calculated to be perpendicular. One of those two angles is selected randomly. A line is drawn at the selected point and using the selected angle.

Superimposed colors

In the book, 101 Things To Learn in Art School, Kit Long wrote that "composition is the foundation of image making ... compositional variance, like musical tunes, is limitless." The animation below is a small experiment that draws a single vertical line, then, randomly fills on a side of the line with a random color. The result is a series of superimposed color panels.
