Emily Xie is an engineer and generative artist who writes algorithms to generate lifelike textures and forms. She is fascinated by the process of combining dissimilar materials and patterns to create a cohesive visual, as well as the potential narratives that each element can bring to the composition. Xie draws inspiration from tactile mediums, such as textiles, collages, and wallpapers, and reinterprets them in the digital realm.
Her generative systems explore the interactions between chance and control, the organic and systematic elements, and the abstract versus the representational. These nuances result in dynamic and thought-provoking compositions.
Artist and researcher. Under the slogan “Towards a Newest Laocoön”, he works with drawing and AI/p5js.
As for his Generative Art works, he has presented “FLUX”, “MOUNTAINS” and “OBLIQUE” as the “FLUX Series” at fxhash. All of them adopt the process of constructing images while destroying them as their theme.
In addition, he is currently participating in a project themed on “music x generative art” and an exhibition project focusing on Smart Contract.
In parallel, he researches and writes critiques related to NFT. Recent article is “Discourse NFT Networks” for the exhibition <Proof of X – NFT as New Media Art> and “Speculations on Metaflat How KUMALEON Embodies a More Purely Artistic Approach to NFT Art”.
