"Starburst I"

Computer-generated digital art, 12" x 14", 2009.

A pleasing design formed from simple elements has special appeal. This artwork is made simply from repeated elements, but the interaction of the parts gives it complexity. The result is difficult to anticipate but is often a happy surprise when it reveals the beauty of its geometric components.

"Coming from a math and computer science background, I enjoy exploring the beauty of both. The computer is a wonderful tool for manipulating basic geometric constructs to form attractive designs and when the generating process is relatively simple, there is a certain beauty in that as well. The complexity of the finished designs are often unexpected, yet surprisingly attractive, echoing the order and structure found in both disciplines. "
