Different collections of 1/1 Works, combining photography or AI-generated images with generative code to create vector images. The resulting images are in the SVG format, which means they are infinitely scaleable and can be plotted at any size.
All these works are minted as NFTs and available on the Ethereum network via https://foundation.app/@codeandwood
Nuages Aplins is a collection of 16 digital works, Inspired by cloud formations in the Alps.
This project is a unique collaboration between me (code+wood) and the the generative artist: Nature.
Over the span of two weeks, Nature meticulously crafted cloud formations in the French Alps, using a blend of water vapour, wind and light. After this process was finalized, I captured the ephemeral moments with my camera. Using my generative algorithms and some manual tweaking of these algorithm’s parameters, The images were transformed into a play of lines. Up-close, you will just see a jumble of seemingly random lines: spaghetti, knots or something alike. But if you look at the image from some distance, squint your eyes, Nature’s authentic masterpieces emerge.
The images invite you to view them from different distances: up close you will see the jumble of lines, seemingly incoherent. But from a distance, with squinted eyes, the lines coalesce into a recognizable image.Matthijs Keuper
Views of Cyberpunk City
Using AI, views from Cyberpunk city are generated as photographs. These are processed using generative code to create a vector drawing, adding light to a black canvas. The complexities of the image are boiled down into an intricate labyrinth of lines limited, to the axes of an isometric view. Yet, when viewed from a distance, the seemingly incoherent lines coalesce to form a recognizable image.
Vistas – Views of Nature
Based on a photographs or AI-generated images, a vector drawing is created, adding light to a black canvas. The complexities of the image are boiled down into an intricate labyrinth of lines and curves, a tapestry that appears like an abstracted tangle of spaghetti or knots when viewed up close. Yet, when viewed from a distance, the seemingly incoherent lines coalesce to form a recognizable image.
Portraits from AI-generated persons, turned into a work of lines using generative code.
Up close, you mainly see a jumble of abstract lines, an almost chaotic amalgamation of shapes and patterns, just like the incomprehensible formulas that AI uses to calculate. I wanted the viewer to first experience a sense of confusion when approaching the artwork. But once they step back and see the portrait, I hope they will be surprised and feel an unexpected emotional connection. With the portraits I try to evoke a sense of connection, while they are not real people, but purely the result of cool AI calculations.
My intention was to make the viewer think about what is real and perception, what is abstract and concrete. It is an invitation to look at the world from different perspectives and to realize that sometimes distance is needed to understand the whole.
