Boston Harper Lecture: Computational Art: Data & Algorithm as a New Brush and Palette
Featuring Jason Salavon
Using software processes of his own design, Jason Salavon generates and reconfigures masses of communal material to present new perspectives on the familiar. Though formally varied, his projects frequently manipulate the roles of individual elements arranged in diverse visual populations. This often unearths unexpected pattern as the relationship between the part and the whole, the individual and the group, is explored.
Salavon will discuss his work--including photographic prints, video installations, and computer programs-- as well as his creative process.
