A variation on the SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM (*), made as a pure Processing sketch. ”SQUARE’ as in the lines are drawn at a right angle to the previous line. So, rectangular in this 16 x 9 HDTV format installation. Each spiral is a single colour chosen at random. Each line is a random width (within predefined limits). Spirals are continuously drawn from the same point of origin. This random construction process is continuous making each view a new experience.

A stand-alone kinetic art display installation. Now mounted with a mobile stand. A RPI3B+, Samsung 43 inch HD TV, Processing, powered by two TV USB ports. Auto boots into the sketch. A plug and play mobile exhibition setup. Awaiting opportunity. Free standing, only needs a convenient single mains socket. Turn on at opening time. Turn off at closing time. No other intervention required.

* The SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM is a kinetic sketch, made with the p5js javascript processing library. The stream is installed at: XYZ.REVAD.COM, where you can experience your very own unique random stream of noisy colourful square spirals.

A variation on the RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM (*), made as a pure Processing sketch. Each spiral is constructed of discreet ellipses drawn in a spiral. Each ellipse is randomly equal in size to the previous ellipse or fractionally larger or smaller. Each spiral is made from a single randomly selected colour. Each spiral is drawn from the same point of origin. This random construction process is continuous making each view a new experience.

Artist proof sample prints (self printed). A diptych of reconfigured outcomes. Reconfigured extensions to the idea behind the LOVE THE NOISE OF LIFE acrylic on shredded receipts on panel diptych. The reconfiguration process used extracts detail from the noise of the original paint and allows for a super sized zoom and a very large maximum 60 x 45 inch print. The metal print option is the one to go for!

A gradient map adaptation of an original installation, constructed from a fusion of real and virtual components, mixing marker pen ink, on layered layout paper, with projected light. An outcome from the installation deconstruction phase. Recorded during an enquiry into ABSTRACT TEXT. Seeded by the text NUCLEAR FISSION SAVES LIVES.

FEBRUARY 2019 REVIEW © 2019 REVAD David Riley

This month has seen more outcomes from my generative code enquiry. These outcomes have manifested themselves as social media posts on Instagram, a selection of large format prints at FOR YOU, and as kinetic virtual installations at REVAD.XYZ. I derived a MONOCHROME SPIRAL STREAM from the RADICAL SPIRAL STREAM. I started to explore a SQUARE SPIRAL STREAM, but there is much more to do in that direction. All the time, with the first signs of Spring, I have been encouraged to think ahead to how I might use the analogue studio this year. As is usual for me, I started out by looking back to what has been achieved in previous years, and specifically what happened last year. I am planning and looking forward to what might be achieved on the studio TRANSIENT INSTALLATION WALL in 2019.

This month’s photo montage hints at this mix of looking back and looking forward.
