A generative artwork on ArtBlocks of Jeff Davis, Color Study #0

16. Color Study / Jeff Davis

Take a square frame and frame a uniformly lit area, rid of the details and place a grid of varying sizes over the area, keeping the average of an area of color, and now we have another algorithm … another color study that works nothing like the one on display here, but potentially interesting project nonetheless. Especially if connected to a camera and displayed in real-time. What’s your favorite color?...

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks by Jeff Davis: View Card #0.

6. View Card / Jeff Davis

I like to be high. When I’m high, I feel free. But I don’t get high unless the wind blows in and allows the waves to lift me and my tiny sailboat high up in the middle of the ocean. It’s a view from another perspective. Changes in perspective allow for a certain openness of thought. For freedom. This can also be scary. View Cards are generative abstractions of high-rise buildings....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks by Jeff Davis: Variant Plan #0.

5. Variant Plan / Jeff Davis

It’s interesting to think that a house may one day be designed from a generative algorithm. I’m not sure why one would, but I’m also not sure why one would not. After browsing through the Variant Plan transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, and visualizing each place before me, I see floorplans of future factories, homes, stores, activity centers, etc. Yet, none of them are enough to make me want to move — to sail away from the sea in my tiny boat to explore....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks by Jeff Davis: Construction Token #0.

2. Construction Token / Jeff Davis

My deep dive into the Construction Token project had me again questioning my own construction. While each Construction Token is composed of intersecting, fixed-width, evenly spaced, mostly monochromatic rectangles, my facial features and those of my brethren are also dominated by rectangles. Well, rectangles AND circles. Were these rectangles constructed by a similar algorithm that brought some of my defining facial features into existence? I’ve been studying the code but the answer is not entirely clear....
