Abstract Generative Animation

A selection of works from a series of abstract moving image artworks that use repeated interacting patterns of simple geometric shapes to generation complex forms.
Works from the series have been exhibited in the London Group Open, 2017 and 2019, the Penwith Gallery, St Ives, 2020, the National Open Art Exhibition, 2016, and shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, 2016.

Complexity
2008

A series of works that form the foundations for my subsequent animations, along with an explanation of the motivation and philosophy behind the work.

Expansion II
2019

This work consists of a number of basic geometric shapes such as triangles and circles repeated and rotated around a centre point so that they form more complex forms (the triangles form stars and the circles form rings). These forms are then expanded at different rates to generate complex interactions.

Spyk
2017

This work consists of multiple copies of a single form – a circle with a spike – rotating around a common centre and with the forms interacting with each other where they overlap.

48 Disks
2016

This work consists of 48 copies of a single form – a disk – rotating around a common centre and with the forms interacting with each other where they overlap.
