Supercomputing Art

The theory behind my work is conceptually driven by the ability of decentralized collections of subjects, that when set in motion by nature or algorithm, to self-organize into complex structures whose ensemble motion is greater than the sum of their original parts and which belie the simplicity of their individual behavior. This smooth interfacing of natural and virtual paradigms requires special, computationally-intense algorithms from my own research; algorithms which can demand days of supercomputer time or months on a desktop computer to execute. In this short talk, you will gain an understanding of how scientists use supercomputers to simulate natural phenomena, learn how those methods are related to generative artwork, and see examples of those techniques manifest in my print, video, interactive, 3d printing, and sculpture work.

Mark J. Stock

Artist, Self-employed
Mark J. Stock is an artist, scientist, and programmer who creates still and moving images and objects combining elements of nature, physics, chaos, computation, and algorithm. His work explores the tension between the natural world and its simulated counterpart, between organic and inorganic, digital and analog, and structure and fluid. He has been showing work since 2000 and has been in over 80 curated and juried exhibitions since 2001... Read More →
