Jonathan McCabe: Flowpi
Australian digital artist Jonathan McCabe showcases his latest series Flowpi via online art platform the Fach & Asendorf Gallery.
Using generative codes and image-based software, McCabe’s visuals reflect mathematical principles devised by English computer scientist Alan Turing in a series of colourful abstract images. The computer program allows colours to blend as if they are liquid, creating sharp edges where there is a shock front – a disturbance to the simulation’s natural wave patterns.
Flowpi indicates a merging of creative and machine principles as explored in the Stylus Spectrum Autumn/Winter 2013-14 Rationale report, RGB.
