Procedural Art or Generative Art

“Generative art” often refers to algorithmic art (algorithmically determined computer generated artwork) and synthetic media (general term for any algorithmically-generated media), but artists can also make it using systems of chemistry, biology, mechanics and robotics, smart materials, manual randomization, mathematics, data mapping, symmetry, tiling, and more.

As procedural art (or generative art) enthusiasts, the team behind Xcrypt produces formal work influenced by the memories of cultural and technological movements.

Alt_Momentum by Xcrypt

Alt_Momentum consists of four sequences containing four extracts from cult films:

Casablanca by Michael Curtiz (1942).

Casablanca by Michael Curtiz (1942).

Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford Coppola (1979).

Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford Coppola (1979).

Blade Runner by Ridley Scott (1982).

Blade Runner (Final Cut) by Ridley Scott (1982).

Fight Club by David Fincher (1999).

Fight Club by David Fincher (1999).

Each of these excerpts ranging from twenty seconds to a minute and a half is not immediately recognizable because it is only using a wave produced by a sinusoid, an alternative and minimal recreation, a representation of the original work’s spectrum .

The minimal process behind the extract forces the acuity of the memory without damaging the original by producing a spectrum of it.

Generated from movie Blade Runner.

We recognize, sometimes clearly, sometimes with difficulty, the fight of hymns at the Rick’s bar, the monologues of Brando/Colonel Kurtz in his jungle lair, Roy Batty/Rutger Hauer before dying in front of an astonished Blade Runner and an enthusiastic Tyler Durden/Brad Pitt.

What’s the number 1 rule of the Fight Club ?

These “remixes” with a minimal process, references to “classic” cinema, appear as haunting readymades filtered and coded in a playful and aesthetic way.
