Currently viewing the tag: "Digital Pattern"

At first glance the work of photographer Andreas Zimmermann appears to depict urban landscapes created out of children’s toy building blocks. The photographs are in fact high-resolution photos of individual Lego which are then digitally assembled on a computer to produce these clever landscape patterns. Patternbank love the playful colour and composition where order sometimes clashes, tricking the eye into seeing something that is not quite what it first appears.

These stunning digitalised explorations are the work of American artist Heath West. West is a design architect currently living in Houston, Texas. West’s work focuses on the structure and transformation of space, exploring how our environments may be composed as a series of points(centres) and lines(trajectories) that fold reflectively into the practice of everyday life.

The Patternbank team are loving Mark Wilson’s unique and colourful digital computer drawings. Wilson has been experimenting with contemporary digital art since the nineteen seventies and has been using computers to craft some truly amazing art pieces. In 1980, Wilson purchased a microcomputer and began to learn programming, with the goal of creating artworks. This work has continued, and his computer generated works have been widely exhibited, both in the U.S. and in Europe. The computer has, in his words, the power to become a ‘democratic art making machine’. See his full catalogue of stunning digital creations at mgwilson.com

Kowalskivision_photographic_prints_pattern_01

The Patternbank team saw these inspiring photographic images featured on Kuvva. A real visual mix of conversational & photographic distorted prints that are trending heavily at the moment.

These inspiring pieces are the work of Polish photographer Peter Kowalski who is currently based in Kraków. This project named ‘Untitled 2013’ looks at how the city of Rome has changed and grown into an incredibly busy and complex metropolis. Kowalski explains, each image consists of 3 to 5 photographs taken at different times and represent different architectural periods. Put together they dance in an unexpectedly symbiotic way, co-existing in a mosaic of shapes and colours. See more of his inspiring work at kowalskivision.com
