Ridge Chemistry

Ridge Chemistry , 2022

The piece evokes hand-drawn landscapes, but it is created through an algorithm that processes topographical data from randomly selected small regions. This generates a series of ridges that, when layered together, create a composite image of a synthetic landscape. I was inspired by both the artistic style and narrative of Tom Gauld's "Vers la Ville."

In this comic, two people are marching toward their future (a town), but their journey is marked by only drizzle and minor worries. To try to emulate this senseless yet captivating feeling, I sampled around a thousand small regions in southern France and only kept the least striking ones, those with a mild elevation variation. This adventure was accompanied by a short poem generated from a famous quote of "Lorem Ipsum."
