There are some really fascinating images produced by processing, admittedly the quality varies considerably and it would be better if artists could be a bit more selective about what they put up, but then maybe I’m missing the point. I thought these two images by Adam Ferriss were visually stimulating. Then the next image by Diana Lange is also interesting because it looks so sculptural. I chose this one above her other work because it is enhanced by its abstraction – I find broken broken or incomplete imagery more appealing as it appears more organic, less processed, more irregular – more visually stimulating.

France.A2005119.1345.250m_1_800I will be putting gif art, glitch art and digital generative art, or art produced via processing, up on this blog from time to time. It has become such a rich and fertile ground for producing images. Fantastic combinations of RGB colours, distortions, 3 dimensions, movement and transparency – not to mention sound and interaction. So, here are a few beautiful images that have been produced by Kim Asendorf.

The top image is a new image by the street artist BÄST based in Brooklyn. They remind me of African tribal masks and costumes, and I think in many ways there are similarities between graffiti and tribal art. I decided it was better to leave some of the wall in the top image because a part of graffiti is the context. I love that splash of white paint on the left side, the red background and the rip – its all part of the process and it creates energy and dynamism. If you are interested in African art I highly recommend the Musée du quai Branly.

I first saw this music video on Department’s web site some months ago, it stuck in my head so much that I’ve decided to post it now. The idea is beautiful. Lucas is a modern day Romeo, described as, “a knight. He is anonymous, romantic and exceptional”. The music and the filming is excellent and truly inspiring.
