Paper Lanterns

Paper Lanterns is a simple exploration in creating “connections.” I find a primary challenge to be creating workable, meaningful pieces in that I overcomplicate them. I find there is always some glaring flaw that winds up being the “weak link” that ruins a piece. So, as an experiment, I tried to make something simple: a […]

Cherry Tree - Processing Sketch
Painted Mountains - scroll

Painting Mountains My first, and possibly the only worthwhile, contribution to Momentary (Let’s face it, Eyal was the brains and the computational brawn of this project) was my algorithmically drawn mountains.

Impermanence - show

Impermanence Impermanence (formerly Momentary) is a short animated interpretation of Japanese scroll art developed in Processing and Adobe AfterEffects. The piece explores the momentary nature of the present and how nothing lasts, including the natural elements that are dynamically drawn and fade away. Eyal was the mastermind behind the work and the AfterEffects majician who […]

Limina - photo shoot

classical elemental - skirt

Classical Elemental There are many reasons that classical statues are preserved in museums: they are fine works of craftsmanship to be marveled at, they are physical reminders of past cultures to be studied, and, possibly the most important, they have the amazing ability of suspending the graceful lines of draped fabric into a solid form.
