The “reCAPTCHA” system was developed to prevent bots from exploiting services provided by social media platforms. Prior to its current iteration, it displayed
narrowly cropped, lo-res JPEGs of street addresses sourced from Google Street View.
Between May and July 2016, just prior the system getting updated (and its corresponding images all but vanishing from the web,) I manually downloaded over 2000 reCAPTCHA image files. These files then became the source material for a series of printed collages and a generative piece.

The 3D printed objects are player pieces in this game, representing human and nonhuman players. Using the digital to realize gestural forms is a process much like rolling a die in D&D: intentional glitches are introduced into the printing process, to impose a structure on the element of chance, and chance onto structure.

This piece is part of an ongoing investigation into producing generative, digital artwork that is inspired by Japanese calligraphic forms called Enzos. Traditionally, these circles are created in a single fluid stoke using sumi-e, ink and paper. The Enzos that I am creating are created via programming and are activated using recordings of various Buddhist sutras. These audio clips have been altered to accentuate properties in order to enhance the dynamics of the artwork they create.

Your Daily Rainbow v3
Your Daily Rainbow started with my curiosity about Facebook’s “Celebrate Pride” image filtering algorithm after the U.S. Supreme Court decision recognizing the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. One of the more interesting aspects of the filter was that it didn’t use the original colors of the pride flag (to keep the photo underneath visible). To get the values of the modified colors, I did a series of experiments and set them as my Facebook profile picture for one day.
