Edition: [Your lucky number]



A generative type algorithm where characters are drawn on a fixed grid. Characters are built with simple geometric shapes which are chosen via character specific instructions. Each character is generated differently due to the influence of random stroke weights and coloring. This gives an almost 3D like feel to it. For those who look closely you can see that the characters are inspired by the 1968 Mexico Olympics typeface, hence the name of the algorithm.

What I do

I make art by writing algorithms. You get one of a kind fine art prints based on your personal input.

An algorithm is like a recipe but with colors & shapes as ingredients. Your input, like a birthday, decides how the ingredients are mixed to create a one of a kind artwork.
