Urbo Kune Generative Drawing

2015


Experimental generative drawing made at a performance event "Urbo Kune" at the Holland Festival 2015 in Amsterdam. Urbo Kune is an Esperanto word for "common city". The event attempted to create the utopian capital of the United States of Europe just for 25 hours. At this 25-hours-lasting musical festival, 10 artists were asked to draw and improvise their "ideal city" on 3 × 2 meter-blackboard.
As one of the artists, I made a live performance with two different organic patterns which overlap and grow infinitely under a certain rule, which influence each other but still maintain their own generative systems and rhythms as if two autonomies co-exist in a same city.
