Martin Rootes 2019:

There were six programs. Each one was based on different genres of art.

Vortex

Generated swirling patterns – Vorticist art.

Texture

The “logical” drawing modes created moiré effects- Op Art paintings.

The other three programs were animated patterns.

Mondrian

De Stijl style art. This effect was used on my computer art for Sheffield band Plan 9’s video of ‘Red Tin Boxes’.

Pic Swap

Card mosaics used in the Moscow Olympics where sections of the crowd held coloured cards to create images.

Runner

‘Nude descending a staircase’ by Marcel Duchamp, based on an Eadweard Muybridge photographs series, instead of a nude descending a staircase it was a running man. This was recorded onto video at a later date with a sound track.
