I find this picture captivating. Moreover, I love that it was created using a computer program. Art is a beautiful thing, and technology is a wonderful tool that we can use to create words, ideas, tools, images, and items that help us in our daily lives.
If there’s one thing that I have learned in my time working for Madison Studios is that, when it comes to the internet, nothing is really what it seems. The picture, font, slideshow, movie, etc. that we see and enjoy on our favorite website is really just the product of a series of characters assembled in a language called HTML that tells our computers to show us what we see. The “back end” of a website would be very much like looking at the back side of a woven or stitched tapestry; the seemingly chaotic stream of randomness and disarray, all pointing to the bigger picture on the other side.
This painting, for example, is the sum of countless clicks, swipes, and passes over a digital pad that communicated a vision from Chris’ mind through his hands into a computer, that took that information and assembled it into a visual signal that we are able to interpret as this beautiful work of art. I realize that this is quite possibly an over-complication of the creative process, but I can not help but to be in awe of everything that goes into the creative process of so much that we enjoy these days.
Chris is a master craftsman of both visual images and websites. He has an eye for creativity and development unlike many of his peers. What a blessing it is for us to be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of his labor.
