Algorithmic Art- Tariq Rashid

June 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Algorithmic Art- Tariq Rashid

Algorithmic art, art forms where the significant element of its design is created by mathematics or data, is growing in prominence and popularity. Whether it is the endless alien terrains in computer games, or music composed by genetic algorithms, robots performing machine learned verse or an animated journey into the infinitely detailed Mandelbrot fractals, all algorithmic art at its core unlocks the hidden beauty, and sometimes the unexpected chaos, of mathematics and logic.

Tariq will be giving an introductory overview of the algorithmic art, covering some of the recent art forms, demonstrating how mathematics can be unexpectedly beautiful, and provoking a discussion on whether code and data is the unavoidable media for artists responding and reflecting our increasingly digital age.

Tariq has long been interested in the intersection of technology, science and art, and currently runs a successful algorithmic art group with over 3000 members. He also encourages children to learn to code through creativity and art.
