Using Number Series for Morphing
Author: Elpida Tzafestas
The goal of our research is to bridge the intentions of scientists and artists in understanding complexity by experimenting, rather than by using arbitrary complex models to create interesting, complex or aesthetically pleasing visual forms . To this end, we start with ?minimal? expression models and we try to explore and classify the range of visual forms that they may give rise to. While this is scientifically correct and intriguing, it is not artistically relevant unless we provide a means for artists to express themselves in unique ways. In scientific terms, we should therefore construct a framework that integrates the chosen expression model (the abstract function or model behind the scenes) together with an expression function (a translation to a visual form) that may be defined by an artist at will.
