Greggory D. Hill creates digital art with a computer program that he began developing in 2014. His work can generally be described as complex generative art. Hill's programming algorithms inject order into his process with loosely defined instructions for light, color theory, form, composition and blending. Within this artistic structure his code then allows the computer to randomly generate a vast diversity of formal outputs.
The combination of the artist's ordered system with this disordered randomness breathes an unusual life into his art that teeters on the edge between the human and the digital and poses questions about creativity in the digital world. From the nearly infinite permutations available Hill searches for those that fulfill his aesthetic vision, as if discovering a collection of found art emerging from his code.
Entitling the finished work is performed by random selection from a dictionary of over 60,000 words and is a reminder of the unpredictable aspects of a process involving such a vast number of permutations.
The final work is a single edition giclée print on aluminum, archival canvas or paper.
Greggory D. Hill is an artist and web developer residing in Chagrin Falls, OH. He received a B.A. in Philosophy from Kenyon College in Gambier, OH in 1991. He is married and has three children.
