Mathematical and Generative Graphics by Tom Beddard

3D Mandelbulb Ray Tracer by Tom Beddard

Tom Beddard plays around with home-brew programmes that can generate interesting pictures and are interactive nature. He also does what any good open-source artist does: offer the source-code for download. This particular project (result of “true fractal structure in three dimensions”, which renders out to look like a couple thousand year’s worth of exquisite pottery study) is called the 3D Mandelbulb Ray Tracer. So if you’re feeling a bit like foraying into “graphical-geekery”, go check out Tom’s site and code!

Watercolor, gouache and ink paintings by once Austin, TX now Cambridge, MA artist Peat Duggins.  The detail images are telling of a cartoon-apocalypse and I have to say I’m not a morbid or pessimistic person, however I enjoy dooms-day movies and I’m growing fond on such themes in artwork where humans are gone and nature takes over.  This is different though, it’s sweet.

Studio Visit: Brian Belott

Brian Belott in His Studio

Brian Belott’s Brooklyn studio is an immersive installation.  Spelunking into a cavern on an alien planet filled with glittering artifacts from a lost culture, might, might compare to walking through Brian’s place.  I was going to stay for an hour, but ended up being there for four hours because there was so much to look at and talk about.  The whole situation is arranged with the discerning eye of the most selective, borderline pathological scavenger – and set to easy listening music, Brian’s “sonic wallpaper.”  I got the feeling that each scrap of torn paper, every tube of glitter has been internalized.  Then arranged into an invisible system that had started to resemble the stratified layers of rock at the Grand Canyon – there was a geological, epic scale to the amount of materials.  Brian works with some art materials, but mostly with found stuff.  He uses those thick cardboard kids books, colorful plastic combs, found audio, and posters.  He makes paintings on glass, original music, found sound audio collages, paper collages, books covered in paint and decorated with rocks, and catalogs of other people’s private photography grouped by themes.  In addition he does performances, many of which are on YouTube.  Meeting Brian I got the immediate impression I was meeting someone special.   He has a gigantic solo show “The Joy of File” opening Friday, February 26th at Zürcher Studio from 6 to 8pm.

Digital photo collages and a pencil sketch by artist Jelle Martens.  These remind me of much cooler versions of landscape prints my grandma has in her house above a couch.
