Alexander Lysov : “Crosslight” (Installation Sketch)


“In my projects I use self-developed software, that can work with big massives of data and generate large digtal images (up to 3 Gigapixels). Images usually print on acrylic glass once. In installations I use light sources controlled by microprocessor, video projection, reflective materials, etc. This is a sketch of “Crosslight” installation, a low-resolution display built with white luminescent lamps. Lamps turns on and off in random order and generate random patterns, suggesting deconstructed text and numbers.” A.Lysov



Generative art refers to any art practice where the artist uses a system, such as a set of natural language rules, a computer program, a machine, or other procedural invention, which is set into motion with some degree of autonomy contributing to or resulting in a completed work of art. Complex systems typically have a large number of small parts or components that interact with similar nearby parts and components. These local interactions often lead to the system organizing itself without any external agent being “in charge”. Such systems are often referred to as being self-organizing.

I create my pieces using computer software and mathematical algorithms modeling a complex system, that can be ordered or highly disordered. This system produce digital images with a certain degree of autonomy through the use of random or pseudo-random data that affect or completely determine the outcome. I use the method of modeling errors and failures that occur in processes that use the program, introducing some amount of chaos in a mathematically exact result, giving it some autonomy.

Accumulating subtle failures eventually lead to the emergence of the uniqueness of each image, destabilizing the visual structure. For me the creative process is always associated with the method of trial and error, and analysis of their impact is more inter- esting than the creation of something perfect. Ideality is a kind of totalitarianism, the same failure, it is destroyed, and modeling of failure in the system, introduce the system in an infinite recursion, which it makes a semblance of life.
