This is an early work. It is a regular grid tessellation where each “tile” consists of two randomly generated overlapping ellipse shapes. Each shape is made of the same number of points. Rather than connecting the points (coordinates) that define the ellipse shapes’ perimeter, I connect one ellipses’ perimeter points to the corresponding point in the second ellipse, and so on. This seems to create imaginary cylinders and a shallow perspective effect.

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.
