10,000 Digital Paintings is a series of generative illustrations, created in a software system that explores a hypercomplex sculpture from an infinite amount of perspectives.
Every image in the 10,000 Digital Paintings series explores a different close-up view on the sculpture, while its entirety remains hidden in a vast virtual space: its actual shape, touch and materiality is left to the viewer’s imagination. On the edge of abstraction, the illustrations find a sensual harmony of energy, colour and shape. Hand-drawn curves form the basic structure and composition of the object, encompassed by a convex hull and embossed into highly detailed surfaces through an extrusion process.
The series was created for the 2011 edition of paper manufacturer GF Smith’s legendary brochures, to inspire the design community about the unlimited possibilities of digital print and generative design. 10,000 Digital Paintings was nominated for the Designs of The Year 2012 by the London Design Museum.
For Sedition, FIELD present a selection of works from the 10,000 Digital Paintings series as digital limited editions.
