"Esqueje" is the Spanish equivalent of cutting or clone. This consists of a fragment of stem cut from a plant and introduced into the ground so that it can take root with the intention of reproducing it, thus generating new clones. "Esquejes" is a generative system resulting from algorithmic gardening, which seeks to push the uniqueness of each pixel to the limit. "Esquejes" generates interesting shapes and textures using several layers of shaders. In this way, the work seeks to make each pixel different from its neighbor and not lose its individuality in the universe of synthetic images. Because if there are infinite numbers, there are infinite colors.
The theme of this work is fireworks and festivals, which symbolizes summer in Japan. With fireworks as the central theme, it consists of the water surface reflecting the fireworks, the city lights in the distance, the silhouettes of the torii gates and arch bridge, and the twinkling lanterns. The shady black background expresses the smoky atmosphere. The drawing algorithm of the work is inspired by traditional woodblock prints and contemporary scratch art. Base layer is drawn with pale watercolor-like gradation. On top of that, the shady black background is drawn. Then, the outline of the fireworks is carved out. The color of fireworks is based on a chemical reaction called a flame reaction. The color palette of this work is also composed of typical flame reaction colors or their mixtures. Each color palette is inspired by the four seasons in Japan. Enjoy the atmosphere of Japanese firework festivals with this work.
Totem is a unique collaboration between Beer van Geer and Studio Poca (Julie de Ruijter), aiming to transform the complexity and beauty of heartbeats into visual art. Utilizing the unique patterns in heartbeat data – specifically the interbeat intervals – they generate unique geometric shapes, creating a bridge between biology and art. Each piece in the Totem series is born from heartbeat data. Collectors are given the choice to input their own heartbeat through an interactive ritual, or alternatively, a random anonymized heartbeat series from our database will be used. The minting technology behind this series is the ArtBlocks Engine, but instead of using the random hashstring that is normally utilised, the heartrate data is used in the creation process. The data is stored on ipfs and embedded as external asset on the blockchain. Every line originates from a basic geometric shape chosen randomly based on the data. If you wish for your own heartbeat data to be used, please visit this website: https://www.totemproject.eu/contribute/
