“…certain patterns of enquiry emerge.”

Ochre, Cerise and Turquoise Closed Discs, 1970

Uneasy Centre, 1963

Islamic Geometry, 10th Century CE

This section shows generative art, based on Bridget Riley's work

For the Closed Discs, the first stage of this project was determining the sequence for each of the coloured groups. Once this had been done, code was used to randomly select the different start points for each group, before generating the full picture.

For Uneasy Centre, a random starting point is generated and then the code steps through a set sequence, drawing progressively smaller circles along a gradually shifting centre point. The sequence incorporates a number of changes of direction.

Clicking the background will re-generate the image at random. To automatically re-generate the image every second click here. (Clicking a second time will cancel the animation)

As the artist picks his way along, rejecting and accepting as he goes, certain patterns of enquiry emerge. Bridget Riley
