Voronoi diagrams are a way of dividing space into a number of regions, the space is scattered with seeds (or points) and for each seed there will be a corresponding region consisting of all points closer to that seed than to any other. Voronoi like patterns are common on many scales in nature from giraffe colouring to cracks in drying mud. I am fascinated by it as a way in which space often organises itself. So I’ve been doing a series of studies on the pattern, breaking and extruding boundaries of cells in an intuitive manner. So I have decided to formalise this process and make an “infinite series” of these drawings.
I decided an infinite series is the way forward because each drawing is a derivation of a process, the work is coding the function and each new drawing a call of that function, f(x). It’s inevitable that the function will change due to the intuitive element of the compositions but it is necessary to do them in order, as the process is to some extent recursive – doing each drawing will affect how I perceive and implement the function in subsequent drawings.
