Marty Knop’s MFA printmaking show was made up computer-generated art posters that had huge influence from math and computer language. Knop has several different methods of making his art. He sometimes puts in coordinates on an x, y axis and translates the plots into a design program that shows an image. Sometimes he’ll use basic three dimensional shapes using iCad, or photoshop, or Mathmatica.
Knop is a pretty intelligent guy. I barely knew the definition of half of the words he was saying. I stayed with him for what I understood and I understood a majority after a bit. Knop likes Automata, the study of complexity through simple rules. this is what much of his art portrays, complexity through simple shapes and patterns.
