Genuary 2021

In January 2021, Alex Russell took part in Genuary 2021. You can see examples of the work Alex made everyday here.

When he posted, Alex also wrote a bit about the process of making the work. Next to each of the examples in the portfolio is the text from that day’s post.

Described by its co-ordinators as “build[ing] code that makes beautiful things”, all the Genuary participants were invited to use a daily prompt to code some generative art and then post it on Instagram. More details here.

At the end of the month, Alex wrote an article on LinkedIn about the project, which you can read via this link. He also took part in an online show at Symbiocene Gallery, curated by Tristian Sauer. Both feature new runs of code especially for each.

Unique runs of Alex’s code are available to buy – drop him a line if anything catches your eye. If you’d like to read more about Alex’s creative coding, visit the ApeiroPattern page.
