realtime NEW MEDIA works
If you think colors are pretty to look at but have no real impact on people, think again. Brian Henry converts Trifecta Gallery this February into an exhibition showing the power of color. Each viewer will be able to experience the show on their own personal level. Henry introduces a new concept and media for Trifecta Gallery. He tells his tale in the medium of digitally engineered hues, saturation, and the luminant properties of light. Each of the four programs are inspired by four well known Greek myths. Icarus/wing shapes, Orpheus /shredded rope shapes, Achilles/ piercing triangles, and Narcissus/concentric rectangles repeatedly transitioning from color to color.The real work of the Artist however, is in the authoring of the programs. Coded sets of numbers, characters and letters specify that each composition has only two visual elements, each of which have at least 2 randomized values: color and opacity. Additionally, some of the programs incorporate the randomized values of speed, position, and number. The images generated are completely unique and unrepeating.
