Future Rope Core Memory
This Future Rope Core Memory generative art print was created by Alex Russell, using a two-part system. Firstly, there is a computer programme (code). Secondly, there is a library of photos and scans of hand-made images. The code models a range of pattern-making and compositional rules. These are developed from methods used in a range of creative processes, including textile design, graphic design and fine art. When the code runs, it uses the rules to arrange the library images. Every new run creates a unique artwork.
The concept behind Future Rope Core Memory is a half-forgotten vision of how the natural world might evolve. The library Alex created for this collection includes hundreds of photos, paintings, drawings and collages around this idea. The code models methods used to sub-divide a canvas into compositional areas. The algorithms respond to the content as the image builds, reacting to conplexity, the type of content and colour (to give three examples).
