Ok so we know that artists create art work, but who creates apps???? That was the question as I headed into a clandestine Google+ meeting of a group that will go un-named, invited by my app inventor buddy Saul Fleischman. Now these guys may not be the inventor s of the apps, but they are key influencers and pontificators, if you will to those that are the movers and shakers of tomorrows internet apps.
Why do I bring this up in an art environment? Good question, as the only creative artist there I soon began to notice the correlation between, my early childhood of being a television technician along with my father and also a young musician and artist. You see “App” is a three letter word just like “Art” and there is a creative process that goes on, albeit with ones and zero’s, user interfaces and API calls.
Here’s where I noticed the similarity in discussing the apps with them, because see I am an Avante-garde digital artist that has transposed the old school world of conte’ and oils into it’s digital representatives. The creation tools maybe be different, the output may be different, where one is visual/audio or written vs an application, but the processes to create these works are astoundingly similar.
So with that it led to the creation of these two works early on Sunday June 17th 2012: Color Earth Gamma Gradient 6-17-2012
|Color Earth Gamma Gradient 6-17-2012|
|Color Earth Gamma Gradient Invert 6-17-2012|
and Color Earth Gamma Gradient Invert 6-17-2012
And there you have it.
