Boxes II is a generative art "derivative" piece inspired by one of the earliest pioneers of the generative art medium, George Nees. In the beginning when we only had plotters to draw lines with, the small community of computer artists produced works that inspired each other. His work called “Gravel” inspired me to create Boxes I and Boxes II.

A regular grid of square tiles. As the computer draws each square its position relative to the center of the grid is calculated using the distance formula. In the case of Boxes II the further the square is from the center of the grid, the more random displacement (translation) and rotation is allowed.

Dr. Bill Kolomyjec's Algorithmic Plotter Art, 1974-1981 collection image

I've been involved in many aspects of computer art/computer graphics. First as a student and pioneer of the medium at Michigan State University (MSU). Followed by several years of professing engineering graphics, computer graphics and computer art at The Ohio State University (OSU). Followed by being called upon to start a program at Northern Illinois University (NIU), College of Visual and Performing Arts, School of Art, Department of Design called Electronic Media, where I was an Associate Professor of Design.

This collection presents the original plotter drawings (pen on paper) programmed in FORTRAN, executed on a CDC6500 mainframe computer and an offline Calcomp 936 drum plotter. Done at Michigan State University during my MFA/PhD era, 1974-1981.

First buyer of every artwork gets an original print mailed to them. Contact me on Twitter to arrange this.
