2004 - 2021
The basis for the series of works titled Unnamed Tree ∞/∞ is an algorithm that takes three factors into account:
According to a default time interval, the starting line splits randomly into one, two, or three branches. The process repeats itself autonomously. In this way, the growth pattern is created.
The more frequent the growth intervals continue, the shorter and stronger are the new lines - thus appearing more organic.
The algorithm stops automatically before the ends of the branches start to grow into a square in the next step. The growth stops and starts again with a new starting line.
Since 2004 and up until now, the organic tree structures generated in this way have been transferred by artists into a number of various media: steel sculptures, screen-print compositions, taping, or glass objects. And it's not only the shape that offers limitless variations but the material, too, has no limits with regard to conversions.
