Generative rule based drawing and ink patterns
I use generative drawing and ink patterns as a form of play and meditation. I develop sets of rules, and then test their limits, experimenting with different patterns that can be made from each rule set. Sometimes, as in my 'Patterns of Mutation' exhibition & 'Connecting Narratives' residency in a brain tumour research lab, the rules I construct are based on biological processes, such as cell division. At other times, the rules are arbitrary, and often use randomly generated numbers to take away my subjective control of pattern features.
