'Beautiful Blocks' Artwork | 5 years of Blockchain stats
Project name: Beautiful Blocks Addition to my 'Data Art' series this is my new exploration of 'Simulation + Data Art' this is a road to experiment data art works with an intent of adding the right theme style and a simulative approach apart from being fully abstract. This is an artistic expression of blockchain technology. As all the information stored on a blockchain is stored in groups called blocks and each block is time-stamped and linked to the one generated before it in time, creating a linear chain of blocks. Ref: www.ameenulinsan.com Mined from the public statistics of Ethereum datasets like: Number of blocks created,Ether Price(USD) Avg block size Avg block time Network difficulty (TH). All 5 years of 24hr data (Aug 2015- Aug 2020). Particles and all the physics guiding them are plethora of data points.
AI paintings | Tribute art to Ethereum community
Addition to my quest for visualizing complexity of computational thinking and using data as my paint. With the service of AI (artificial intelligence) such as generative adversarial network (GAN) and many other to create amalgamations to analyze form by an artistic thinking with the help of machine intelligence. Not a single source from art is used to create these paintings the ML itself ended up giving it vibes of unique historic art movement styles. Just to get philosophical, As we have not yet figured out what conscious itself is, then how can we define what art should be. Ref: https://www.ameenulinsan.com/ Also the only opportunity when you need to think about parametric form with unusual physics which cannot exist in reality, this is where machine intelligence services you with power of exploring unusual and other-worldly forms and experiences. Refer my other 'Data Art' project pages for more about inspirations. This current piece of work was a tribute to the fascinating, daring crypto-community and people who love decentralization. Unbelievable paradigm shift that will change everything that we know as norms. A community of art admirers/curators rising for what they called 'crypto-art' was unbelievable to grasp the idea but also fascinated to witness the creative journey.

'Machine learning + Art'
Another experimental project 'Machine learning dreams'. Creative freedom on obsessive colours of the universe. Addition to my 'data+art' collective. Inspecting beauty in data and depicting the complexity of computational thinking. Method of amalgamation of Nebula image library from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope trained on StyleGAN model and experimenting 3d heightmaps on the same. Ref: https://www.ameenulinsan.com/ The project also aim to evoke a sense of other-worldliness with its generative particles with added turbulence. This is a road to depict alien graphics apart from the usual 'cyberpunk' with the help of unusual physics simulation and higher dimensional geometries. The idea of ‘storytelling’ in projections is one way forward in terms of content beyond the simple projection of images and shapes. There is the opportunity to engage people in stories beyond looking at a building and delve into history and stories and use the format with a little more narrative around histories. With this, it’s possible to take data from almost anything and use that to create an animation which is live.
