In my generative work, I throw “paint” particles, shapes, and colors at random locations on the surface of the screen and use several mathematical concepts like the vector field to add deterministic movement and other techniques like recursion and color gradient to introduce variety. The continuous layering of particles and shapes suggests what I feel is a contradictory and tedious balance between repetition and variety in my daily life and creative process.
Elio Ramos Colón (aka garabatospr) was born in Aibonito Puerto Rico in 1966. Since 1997 he has been a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Puerto Rico at Humacao teaching undergraduate courses in computer programming and data visualization. He works in generative art and digital abstract art. His creative process is based on simple geometrical and mathematical concepts and pushes them to the limit to obtain an interesting balance between simple and complex structures.
