BITS – Yuri Vishnevsky’s Generative Woven Silks

In ALL, BITS by Alex Pedersen

We’re amazed by Yuri Vishnevsky’s generative sciart project Silk!

Silk is a generative art tool that uses HTML5 code and functions in your browser. Vishnevsky provides controls that allow you to create your own masterpieces. With seven different colours, various mirror and spiral features, and a rotational symmetry brush, you can create your own unique artworks.

Alex Pedersen

Alex is a critical scholar and social scientist. During her degrees, Alex recognized a dearth of knowledge transfer between the academy and the general public. To address this gap, she extends her empirical research through multiple mediums including: publications, formal lectures, public speaking events, radio, theatre and photography. In diversifying access to her research, Alex honed a unique set of skills to plan, design and produce events for a wide variety of audiences. To date, she was responsible for several successful lecture series, community events and fundraisers across diverse settings. Most notably, Alex organized and implemented the 2015 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship and was an advisor for the “Free Queen’s” Steering Committee (an initiative encouraging graduates to bring their work to the wider public). In addition, she has written numerous successful grant applications. An activist at heart, Alex advocates for critical thinking in and beyond academic institutions.
