Writing the Score for Drawing.

Roman outlines sources that dominated his pursuit as an artist
for over 60 years.  He identifies “form generating” ideas from
pioneers of non-objective art that shaped his pre-algorist work
and have continued to shape his approach to algorithmic art. His
presentation illustrates the transition from what he calls
“art-mind guiding hand” to “art-mind guiding machine”. By doing
so he suggests that the “decision bit” and one’s art ideas are
inseparable. For this session he will include a brief addendum on
his 2008 project, the Upsidedown Book and Mural for which he
resurrected pre-algorist drawings and transformed them with
digital tools.

Short Bio

Roman Verostko, born 1929, Art Institute of Pittsburgh (1949),
Professor Emeritus, MCAD (1994).  Primarily a painter in his
pre-algorist work, Roman also experimented with new media with
showings of  his programmed audio-visuals in 1967 long before
exhibiting his first fully algorist work, “The Magic Hand of
Chance”, in 1982. A founding member of the algorists he is known
best for his richly colored algorithmic pen and brush drawings.
His generative software controls up to 14 pens and achieves
expressive brush strokes driving oriental brushes with a pen
plotter. His seminal paper, “Epigenetic Painting: Software as
Genotype” (ISEA, Utrecht, 1988), outlined the biological
analogues to generative art (verostko.com/epigenet.html)
