Brayman is among a growing number of artists using data and computation as both a medium and a tool for artwork. His focus is on producing objects out of porcelain that are influenced in both form and surface from sensory data from the natural world. This exhibition displays his methods and the results of his research.
“These pots come from my research into new technologies coupled with a traditional interest in utility. The basic forms are largely defined by conventions of function. The specifics of the forms and their surfaces are born from contemporary computer technology. The drawings are first created digitally by a computer program taking sensor data from the natural world and converting it into abstracted geometries. Light, temperature, humidity, and wind speed just outside my studio are used by software to drive the specifics of the marks on the pots.”
