Flowpi by Jonathan McCabe



Days ago I attended the Flowpi exhibition by Jonathan McCabe at Fach and Asendorf Gallery, that was when I discovered the hallucinogenic and organic world that McCabe creates by writing his own software.  Then I searched more about his work and specially about the Flowpi series and I found on his vimeo account these awesome landscapes moving and growing up! I couldn't resist to ask him a little bit about the process of, see below what Jonathan told us about his Flowpi series;

"The Flowpi series was made using software that I wrote myself. It is a product of two processes. One is a simple flow like a 2 dimensional compressible fluid, which mixes up the colours and blends everything together, but also makes sharp edges where there is a kind of shock front. The other process is one of differentiation based on the Turing instability, which produces coloured lines and dots, and also a force acting on the motion of the fluid, stirring it up." - Jonathan McCabe
