Eyeshadow Roses

Eyeshadow Roses #016

“Eyeshadow Roses” was part of the fxhash interactive minting experience at The Ever-Evolving World of Art, Art Basel Hong-Kong, 2022

Painterly roses randomly overprinted with heavy streaks of ink.

The roses grow by a sequence of three spirals, every new spiral smaller and superimposed on the former. After the roses are fully formed, a random mask of heavy ink is algorithmically screened over the flowers in a pattern of horizontal or vertical lines, occasionally fully flooding the painting or misprinting. The accumulation of choices evokes graffiti or printmaking. The sequence of choices are interpreted by the computer according to the algorithm. The beauty of these choices are determined by the viewer.

Each piece takes roughly 10 seconds to generate.
