Flow Interrupted explores abstraction in the context of digital artwork that generates itself. These generative artworks investigate systems and structures as part of the creative process; the artist creates the code, the code in turn creates the art. The element of control, both as a process and format becomes an intrinsic component of the exhibition, as the artist in essence gives up control of the final piece to the systems created by their code. The generative systems reflect the chaos and spontaneity of day-to-day life. Though they embrace digital technology, many of the works selected for Flow Interrupted also display a clear connection to more traditional art forms such as drawing, painting, film, and photography. For example, drawing, particularly the tradition of doodling, comes alive in Brett Ian Balagh’s Chora while Claudia Hart’s Dream and Aaron Higgins’s comp3(terra) evoke the language of painting.
