Jardins d’Été


Series of videos and prints depicting the blossoming gardens of Château de Chaumont-sur-Loire.

The complexity of floral formations moved by the wind serve as a dataset to generate new computational paintings. Speculating on the traditions of landscape painting, the work explores a hybrid substance between the pictorial and the algorithmic.
