Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
Fellow 9ruller – Justin Ruckman – has mentioned a very funky Adobe Flash based artist on his blog, Centripetal Notion.
Erik Natzkeâ€™s generative paintings are made using Flash, sometimes from sampled photos and video and other times from scratch. He controls very specifically the environment in which his creations thrive, leaving the artworkâ€™s specificities to the whim of the code
The pictures his software creates go far beyond the normal Flash random image generators, creating the sort of thing I would actually like to hang on my wall. Some of them, despite being machine created, actually look, at least partially, like they’ve been painted with some sort of natural media (oil/ acrylic paint).
