The Connected Play generative art print code reconfigures eight hand-drawn, straight lines into a complex system of interwoven shapes. The work draws on the biological concept of genotypes and phenotypes. In the genotype stage (the data within DNA), the code produces numeric data that corresponds to the composition and content of the output. In the phenotype stage (the physical manifestation of the genotype), the data is converted into visual content, using the lines to build thousands of interlocking forms. The work alludes to the complex patterns of synaptic connections that allow humans to learn and form memories.
The name “Connected Play” is a term from Christopher Alexander, Sara Ishikawa and Murray Silverstein’s book ‘Pattern Language‘, also a key influence. Read more about the concepts behind the series here.
