Week 13- artist interview- Marty Knop

         
I found Marty reading a book at the table when I first approached him, but when I began talking to him I found him very easy to talk to!! I found out how he created these amazing designs. They were done with an interesting process. He had first created these designs by coding a formula in a program called mathimatica, he then blows up these images using the presses of silk screen, for his colored prices he actually used bear house paint! 

I really enjoyed this gallery because it tied into our algorithmic art activity we recently did! And I was able to hold my own in a conversation about coding because my brother is a computer scientists! Great gallery this week with a very positive artist!
