Aesthetic evaluation of computer generated patterns is a growing filed with several challenges. This paper focuses on the quantitative evaluation of order and complexity in multi-state two-dimensional (2D) cellular automata (CA). CA are known for their ability to generate highly complex patterns through simple and well defined local interaction of rules. It(More)
Natural order infuses several levels of both worlds: some determined by human society and some determined by nature. It guides our understanding of big datasets related to network analysis. Acutely aware of order, I examine what technological and human worlds have in common. My task is to juxtapose the regularity of nature with human constructions, both(More)
ARTIST STATEMENT Acutely aware of order, I examine what technological and human worlds have in common. Natural order, revealed randomly and regularly, infuses several levels of both worlds: some determined by man, through buildings, their windows, even cars parked in lots, and some determined by nature, through trees, branches and leaves arranged. Natural(More)
Humans create cities, whereas a city metaphor reflects datasets. What do technological and human worlds have in common? Natural order guides our understanding of big datasets related to network analysis, when we employ physical analogies of the data, render the data graphically, explore them " by eye, " and interact in real time. My task is to juxtapose the(More)
TECHNICAL STATEMENT Typically, my creation of art runs through stages. First, I sketch a general outline for the bigger composition, then I draw abstract geometric designs as starting points for executing my computer programs. Computers then convert my ideas into lines, with codes taking shape as iconic images of animals (a horse, for example) or symbolic(More)
