Generative Art, sensory transpositions and synesthesia.
"Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist creates a process, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention, which is then set into motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a completed work of art" (P.Galanter)
Generative art usually involves a source of information, and of the greatest source is music, as it dynamizes and introduces harmony into images. I, as a generative artist, write and code a set of rules, filters and algorithms which transposes sounds to images, which means earing to vision, this is the “sensory transposition”. These images are a visual and colorful representation of music, we could see it as a kind of reverse synesthesia ( the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body ).
The long and thorough artistic work is found in fragile and balanced assembly of all these elements: code, algorithms, transforms, fine tuning and of course music or other data sources. Other interesting sources for generative art are mathematical equations, public and symbolic data such as bitcoin blockchain. My generative art is also declined in sculptures, thank to the new popular technology of 3D printing. I create 3D models from algorithms or 2D artworks, which then can be printed on demand with noble materials such as resin or bronze.
