Algoritmisches Zeichnen

I programmed a series of algorithmic drawings that were inspired by the work of the Chilean visual artist, Matilde Pérez. Through a repetition of algorithmically defined squares in the ** Processing** software, I defined rules based on the way Matilde Pérez used the vertical composition of squares, then drawn physically with a plot machine.

For my algorithmic drawing I defined the following steps:

*There will be a certain number of squares. In this case, 40.**The squares will have a random width that varies between 5 and 20.**The squares will have a random high, which will vary between 150 and 200 for the first division; 300 and 350 for the second division; and 280 and 300 for the third division of the canvas.**The first point of the first square begins 50px from the upper and left lateral margin.**The 40 squares of the first column of squares will be created.**For the second column, the first square will begin in half the width of the upper square**and its width will be determined in the first third of the upper square.**Then the rest of the squares in the second column of squares will be created, under the same rule.**The first square of the last column will begin one-third of the width of the first square and its width will be determined by a quarter of the width of the upper rectangle.**Then, all the squares will be created.*

This exercise was created under the tutoring of Prof. Dr. Frieder Nake at the Hochschule für Künste Summer Semester 2019, Digital Media Program.
