I create a new piece of art every day, and collect most of them in the Daily Dose of Art. I want to empower people to add color and design to themselves and their environments, without the wasteful pitfalls and generic selection of mass-produced designs. Each of my designs is available in a wide and constantly evolving selection of products. Select a design you like, select the product you need, and order a customized, made-to-order adaptation. Because each adaptation is done by hand, you get a say in the design. Change the colors, add some text, even mix multiple designs, if you can describe it, I can produce it for you.
We make special bonds with the places we live, and I explore that inComplicated Cities, where I contrast the rich meaning we invest in our favorite cities and their skylines with the context-free processes of neural network imaging and fractal texturing. These skylines are not painted with a brush, they are rendered by a complicated computer network using an advanced technique known as Style Transfer. To romanticize the process, these are a computer’s idea of what a city looks like, if the computer was inspired by the Daily Dose of Art.
Laughter is the best medicine, and the earnest laughter of your friends and loved ones can be a powerful mood boost. With this in mind, my partner Abby and created a 30 second meditation video of her highly contagious, intense giggle fits to use as a quick pick-me-up whenever we're feeling down. Give a try, it might make you smile.
I have been writing on the internet for decades, but mostly in temporary places that aren't so easy revisit like forum posts, social media comments, message boards and chat rooms. A few years ago, Complicated Reality was started to serve as an easy index of some of my favorite works, so I could more easily share them with strangers and friends. While the site has grown into quite a bit more, this corner remains as a peek at the deeper structures of my thoughts. From short stories and parables, to song lyrics and guided meditations, there's a lot to explore. Enjoy!
Animals have always been a part of the human experience, and the companionship they offer us bring love, joy, comfort, and protection to our lives. With Complicated Companions I offer a unique way to commemorate your own favorite animals, by creating artistic renditions of them using the same complex technology I use in my other art. Check it out to request a render.
