«Minimalist patterning

Minimalist patterning documents a set of investigations into algorithmic structures developed through an analysis of paintings by Ellsworth Kelly, Kasimir Malevich, and Frank Stella. These representative structures consist of variables that, when manipulated, provide an opportunity to exercise control over the generated visuals. Each investigation (implemented using Processing) takes the form of a series of generated visuals that are displayed individually alongside a layered composition of the entire series over time.

Investigation 1: Ellsworth Kelly"Colors for a Large Wall" (1951) / Audio: "The Daydream" by Tycho
Investigation 2: Kasimir Malevich"Suprematism (Supremus No. 58)" (1916)
Investigation 3: Frank Stella"Raqqa II" (1970)
