Generative Photography

Experimental photography | 2011



Generative Photography is an exploration within the fields of photography and generative art. Digital drawings are sequentially projected on a screen in a dark room and photographed using long exposure times. As in generative art, this photography technique uses an algorithm that is polluted with a certain randomness. The randomness comes from rendering imperfections and the asynchrony between the frame rate of the video signal and the refresh rate of the projector.

Glitches are unique, almost impossible to reproduce, and usually imperceptible to the naked eye. This technique gives shape to these digital glitches and captures their unpredictable beauty.
