Curvescape VII presents us with linework one would find in a sketchbook, with marks of pencils and charcoal. Their flow and continuity remind of the contour lines found in topographical maps. Yet the drawing retains a two-dimensional aspect, a flatness that contributes to the abstraction of the picture. Generative artist Kjetil Golid conceived this work from particles moving along a noise flow field. The data set provides a structure with which the artist plays. The result tells of Golid’s gameful approach to coding and his quest to create intricate aesthetic visuals.
