Motifs from the realm of decorative art and design dance and evolve on screen, tracing a journey from the ancient, analogue and physical, to the modern, digital and abstract. Craft techniques such as tiling, mosaic, marquetry, weave and stitch all originated as mathematical pattern structures and here are bought full circle, ‘re-encoded’ as algorithms.

Daniel Brown

1st September to 31st October 2021. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Daniel Brown is a creative technologist working in the fields of generative and interactive art and design. His pioneering 'On Growth and Form' series takes its name from a 1917 book by Scottish biologist Sir D'arcy Thompson, who used mathematics to investigate the shape of plants and animals and the relationships between different species.

At the Music Hall, a custom 'Victoria' iteration of the series also draws upon the 19th century tradition of cultivating and collecting personal and unique species of flowering plants, but with a 21st century nod to the futuristic notion of genetic engineering and artificial life. This unique animation for Aberdeen is generated in real time, and never repeats.

Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Charles Young is best known for his Alt-w supported project Paperholm, where he designed, made, photographed and animated a tiny model building daily out of paper for one thousand days. His looping moving images explore ideas around the perception of space, imagination and memory.

In this new series of HD animations, a paper model of the neighbourhood that surrounds the Music Hall is shown from varying angles and different heights. This base of the existing city has been added to with a layer of invented structures and occupation that are bound to delight.

In this map of the stars directly above the City Art Centre, updated live as time passes, the fleeting presence of visitors generates unique abstract animations. By taking this stellar data set and a computer algorithm called reaction/diffusion, they literally bring the heavens alive.

Restless, vital patterns emerge looking like cells, fingerprints, fungi, animal markings or brain cross-sections. They remind us that all life originates in the stars. Each iteration hints at the fragile balance between growth and death on which beauty, harmony and meaning depend.
