Brown began a series called On Growth and Form in 1999 crafted by complex mathematics rather than by hand, these works use computer code to generate hyper-realistic, never repeating blooms that like time-lapse documentary photography explode hypnotically into patterns before the viewers eyes. Most recently, a version was commissioned by the V&A in 2009. Daniel is now proposing to create a new generation of the flowers series, this time integrating true high-end real-time 3D graphics into the process, allowing a virtual camera to pan around the blooms as they grow. The commission will also use imagery from the collections in the DArcy Thompson Zoology Museum to create flower textures and inspire flower shapes. The results will be shown as a projection piece within the museum. Presented by the Art Fund and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
New commission by the artist.
