My name is Thomas Jourdan, living in Germany. I came from coding and mathematics to art. In the 1980er I wrote my first program for a numerical controlled plotter. Years later I was working on genetic algorithms to calculate abstract forms and color palettes. Now working on a rule based generative system. Many of my 3d images are made by using algorithmic rules to generate the geometry and the placements of all the objects.
My images are often inspired by by things I in see nature like branching structures, flowers or the texture of stones. By using algorithms an abstraction layer is introduced into the creative process. In this way the viewer is free to interpret the image in her own way.
