This is a deconstruction of my painting “Stack of Wheat after Claude Monet.”

The paintings I create with my custom generative software are preserved as databases. This piece is a visualization of my introduction of chaos onto a database consisting of 732,116 unique vector shapes. The result isn’t as much a glitch of vectors as it is a representation of the popular proverb, “the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it.” But for chaos, my interpreter program is capable of perfectly recreating my original painting. I am investigating the aesthetics that result from the random and erratic, suggesting all that goes wrong is sometimes right; that the design choices I made in the original painting can survive outside that rigid data structure and thrive in the unexpected. I am searching for the best wrongs; the wrongs that outshine my perfectly laid plans.
