Richard Vigniel

Born in: 1976


Translation in progress

From an early age I had a strong passion for digital images, and with evolution of technology, the field of opportunities increases more and more with time. Generative art needs a source of data in addition to the algorithm written by the artist. One of the greatest source is music. Music transforms, dynamizes and introduces harmony into the amazing resulting artwork.

The combination of algorithm and data generates amazing images. They are then a visual and colorful representation of music. Other interesting sources are mathematical equations, or public and symbolic data such as bitcoin blockchain transaction hashes. The long and thorough artistic work is found in fragile and balanced assembly of all these elements: code, algorithms, transforms, fine tuning and of course music or other data sources.
