Opening Night

Last night was the opening reception for the Wild Child Exhibition at the Bridge Gallery in Manhattan.

Monday, July 6, 2009


FADarch will be showing work in the “Wild Child” exhibition at the Bridge Gallery in Manhattan. The exhibition will run from July 9th to September 2nd.

Peter Macapia and Marilyn Garber of bridgegallery are pleased to present WildChild, a unique array of computationally experimental art, architecture and design involving the latest experiments in digital and algorithmic computing and advanced fabrication. Each of the designers in this exhibition have taught and evolved over the last decade using digital, animation, scripting, and parametric software tools. However, they have recently begun to develop idiosyncratic attitudes that continually defy easy categorization either in methodology or results. They are essentially ‘wild’ in their technical ambition and in their aesthetic. In that sense, the artists, designers, and architects in this exhibition are moving towards new theories, new territories, and new problems.

The extraordinary range of skill and technique exhibited through WildChild comes from a rigorous and continued manipulation of software tools branching into the generation of code, and producing exotic results. The question becomes how these processes result or impinge upon material considerations and aesthetic affect. Selecting work that represents major developments from New York City on the East Coast and Los Angeles on the West Coast, WildChild introduces a new generation of work tempered by the differences in urban environment as well as design sensibility and fabrication.

WildChild includes:

Squiggle Script

Nearest Neighbor Script

This is a nearest neighbor script I have been working on in Mathematica.
