Welcome and thanks for coming to my website !
I am Julien, a french software engineer exploring generative design since 2007.
As a kid, I discovered generative design with fractals, and spent hundred hours exploring the Mandelbrot set.
This led me to study computer science, implementing a distributed Mandelbrot renderer, and some custom IFS algorithms.
During those years, I also came across the concept of emergence, where simple elements and local rules can produce designs with incredible and beautiful complexity.
I decided then to pursue the exploration of this concept to create a different kind of generative art, path that I have been following ever since.
My work is solely made of dots arrangement, computed one by one from a single original seed by a custom algorithm.
I program the rules to compute new dots for old ones beforehand, then explore different ways to parameterize them. I then generate a lot of different designs, and select interesting ones, to be refined or further explored.
