Generative Art Drop #10

Everyone should be an artist. Words can be art. Food can be art. The things you build with your hands can be art. Every human (and even non-human) creation has the potential to be art.
But not every creation is regarded as art. Art is typically reserved as a label for particularly skillful or “artful” creations. Sure we’re all going to half-ass a lot of things in life and create with zero aesthetic intent purely to “get the job done”. I’d argue that some of the best art is made with a blatant disregard for what other people typically desire.
Brutalism is a great example of a style that focuses on function over aesthetics. There is something very authentic about stripping away the fluff and getting straight to the point. I find it very pleasing to look at something honest, that was not made purely for my viewing pleasure.
Maybe my view was partially shaped by growing up on a farm. I was regularly exposed to skillful yet functional creations. Building a fence that would last 20 years was regarded as art in my world.
So next time you make something, do it with purpose. And know that it is art in someone’s world.

I like these rug-like designs with swatches of color and texture. This is visually much more inviting than a design with flat color blocks that don’t feel natural. Nice work!
I also love the Twitter bio of DisruptedStar “Generative Art Creator and Astrophysicist”. That certainly grabs my attention.

These beautiful cityscapes appear to be made by taking a photo of Tokyo and generating randomly colored triangles to overlay onto buildings. This style feels like it adds more depth than simply trying to paint flat polygons over buildings.

This design satisfies my craving for generative art that has a minimalist vibe embracing white space. I might have gone for a darker or lighter background, but I really like the block colors.

Thanks for reading! 🖖
You might have noticed that I excluded the Sponsors section from this issue. I just didn’t feel like that implementation was adding much value, so I dropped it for now. I do want to find a good way to promote my loyal collectors…I think I can come up with something better. Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks again!
