This drawing uses the Goose figure from a set of hand-digitized representational images. The full set consists of: Goose, Frog, Fat Cat and Elephant. I often used these interchangeable figures in my early works.

Geese is an original work from around 1975. The computer generates an array of translation coordinates and translates each goose into position. A mathematical function written by Christopher Scussel provides the rotation angle for each instance of the goose in its respective position in the array. The function provides different rotation information and the overall flow of the image or surface pattern changes. Birds of a feather indeed flock together.

This is an early example of Generative Art. Many versions were drawn before this particular data set was determined. In essence, random to a point of being chosen by the artist.

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.
