Leo Villareal @ the San Jose Museum of Art

23 September 2010

Here’s a great article about Leo Villareal’s exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Art.  The article is packed with videos of Villareal’s work, including a walk-through of the actual exhibit.

I particularly resonated with this quote from the artist:

I am interested in the idea of generative art and rendering the patterns on the fly, but have not found a way to generate compelling sequences enough of the time.
This suggests to me that Villareal’s sequences aren’t entirely algorithmic, but also contain pre-programmed sequences (presented randomly and with random parameters, according to the article).  Interesting to consider, as I have been primarily concerned with generative sequences for my light boxes, and certainly agree that it is challenging to discover/create compelling patterns that are purely algorithmic.
