a data visualisation paint machine
programmed in processing
- predefined color tables.
- randomly mixed scales of predefined color tables
- random color picks out of algorithmically manipulated color arrays.
30 keyboard keys were linked to the color tables, which were assambled and collected together over the years out of all kind of material.
4 keyboard keys are for controlling size manipulation, transparent shutter and the recording control.
a packing algorithm is used to position the circles.
to put colored circles on a white sheet, implies - to me - a very fundamental expression of the beauty and pleasure of painting.
the circle represents the most perfect form and at the same time all contradictions seem to be embedded within it. that pi, the key connection between radius and circumference, is (probabely) infinite and (probabely) without a certain pattern or systematic and that sience could not solve that riddle until today, is really fantastic and says it all.
all circle units are interconnected, sending theyr own color beam and receiving the one of the other interconnected circle.
to play this paint software one starts throwing the dice for a list of input values combined with a choosen color map and later react to the constellations by going over and over it again.
at a certain point, a recording is finished as a vector image for possible large print.
