Chester Visual Arts (CVA) is thrilled to launch two exciting interactive commissions from Chester-based artists Robin Hunter and Emma Lucy.
Both works are inspired by the major V&A touring exhibition ‘Chance and Control: Art in the Age of Computers’, which CVA brought to Chester in 2019. They are part of CVA’s Learning Programme which encourages arts engagement and participation in Cheshire by working with artists, schools, youth organisations and adult learners.
CVA’s aim is that adults, children and families will engage and enjoy these original cultural activities created by local artists, whether at a computer or as a printed colouring sheet.
Robin Hunter’s Adventures in 10 Print enables users to create playful, maze-like pattern drawings using a classic computer art algorithm. The original 10 Print algorithm started life as a one-liner party trick on the Commodore 64. It randomly printed a forward or backward slash that filled the screen. In Adventures in 10 Print, users control the visual rules, such as the line size and colour, generating original designs each time. It’s fun, simple to use - and highly addictive!
