|Computational expressionism is an exploration
of drawing using a computer that redefines the concepts of line and composition
for the digital medium.
A computer allows us to construct drawing instruments that take advantage of the dynamism, interactivity, behavioral elements and other features of a programming environment.
Drawing becomes a two-fold process, at two distinct levels of interaction with the computer. The artist has to program the appearance and behavior of lines and subsequently draw with these lines by dragging a mouse or gesturing with some other input device.
The compositions incorporate the beauty of computation with the creative
impetus of the hand, whose apparent mistakes, hesitations and inspirations
form a complex and critical component of visual expression.
