This page features links to the latest versions of artworks-in-progress by Clive Holden.
Link to generative artwork-in-progress: TIME IS THE NEW LANDSCAPE (summer, 2017). Please give 5 to 10 minutes for this work to load into your browser cache – playback will ‘smooth out’ after that, to duplicate what is seen in offline exhibition. And view this work on a computer screen (not a phone, although some tablets may be suitable).
Link to generative artwork-in-progress: POINTS AND TIME (summer, 2017). Please give 5 to 10 minutes for this work to load into your browser cache – playback will ‘smooth out’ after that, to duplicate what is seen in offline exhibition. And view this work on a computer screen (not a phone, although some tablets may be suitable).
- In exhibition, these works are displayed in large lightboxes, or as projections. However, a concurrent, smaller netart version of the work may be exhibited as well in some cases.
- To see generative artworks as intended in exhibition mode: after clicking one of the above links, consider selecting View > Enter Full Screen (at the top of your screen).
- In exhibition, generative artworks run smoothly because the visual files (GIFs, JPEGs, video loops) are already loaded into the software’s memory. However, when viewing them this way (via the internet) these files might take time to fully load, and so the playback will ‘smooth out’ after some time (the length depends on your computer connection). One option is to open an artwork, go get a coffee, and return later.
- Generative artworks have been fully tested in the Chrome and Safari browsers, but they will work well in many others too (if you’re having problems, try viewing in Chrome and Safari).
- Note that this page is not included in the cliveholden.com site menu (so bookmark it if you want to return). If you’ve been invited here, please return to this page in future, and not to the links this page points to (some of which are temporary), because the links here will always point to the most recent iteration of an artwork. Update: there is now an invisible link to this page in the bottom-right corner of the Bio page.
- Screen size: ideally, you’ll view this work on a larger (desktop) computer screen, but many laptop screens will also be large enough. It’s not currently designed for mobility platforms such as phones, although it will work well on some iPads and other tablets (if there’s a netart version of a work, as mentioned above, it will be prepped for phone playback).
- Black or white background: with these generative artworks white is the common surround when displaying on a lightbox, however I also make a black background version of each work intended for projections (the black surround registers as ‘invisible’ when projected).
