Digitised Landscapes by Andreas Nicolas Fischer


Berlin-based artist Andreas Nicholas Fischer uses custom digital software called Schwarm to create colourful abstract compositions based on a series of landscape photographs.

The Schwarm processing application analyses the colour and composition of photographs. The resulting algorithms produce generative forms that move across the screen, leaving an overlapping trail of colours – similar to a brush spreading paint.

Check out Fischer’s time-lapse video Schwarm, which shows the autonomous drawing agent running in real time to produce an infinite sequence of unique images.
