Instruction Drawings

Instruction Drawings

Project Link

Sol LeWitt was a conceptual artist whose works are an important precendent for many of the “creative coding” projects produced today. His large-scale and numerous Wall Drawings consisted of instruction sets — sometimes quite detailed — which were executed by others. The variations in understanding and application of these rule sets by human agents led to beautiful works of art, executed by numerous anonymous workers.

The Wall Drawings are also procedural, in the computational sense. This project is a riff on the Wall Drawings.
