Talysis II (2006) by Paul Prudence

1 Oct

Talysis II (2006) was the first in a series of artworks exploring the process of video feedback to create auto-catalytic self-generating artworks. Orginally comissioned for Art.ficial 3.0, São Paulo, 2006

Mimicking the classic analogue video feedback process, this software simulation creates complexity from an economy of means. A simple shape is passed around a circuit of renderers. Transformations of the shape are applied to its conveyance around the loop resulting in a multitude of feedback species, geometric tessellated formations, that transform and reconfigure over time.

The strict symmetries, quasi-hyperbolic surfaces and parabolic forms generated from this machine monologue allude to the works from Perceptual and Op-Artist movements of the 60’s.

Exhibited at:

Art.ficial Emotion 3.0, São Paulo, 2006.
Playgrounds AV Festival, Tilburg, 2007
Zero to Infinity, London, 2008
Bridges, Budapest, 2009
Optofonica Museums Night, Amsterdam, 2010
