Vase Forms, 2017 - 2018 & Constrained Forms, 2017
Andy Lomas is a digital artist, mathematician, and Emmy award winning supervisor of computer generated effects. His art work explores how complex sculptural forms can be created emergenty by simulating growth processes. Inspired by the work of Alan Turing, D'Arcy Thompson and Ernst Haeckel, it exists at the boundary between art and science. What can be created by artifical biology: systems that are inspired by, but don't directly copy, nature?
Work is presented from two different series: physical sculptures created using digital fabrication equipment, and 3D virtual sculptures of forms that are beyond the capabilities of current fabrication.
