Cone Gradient Study is a series of computational artworks that explore the intersection of graphical form, gradients, color and light simulation.
"The work is built with a simple premise – what if the color of every pixel is derived from a small number of points which have a hue, an intensity and a direction. Given a simple equation, the color of a given pixel can be determined. You can think of these cones like light sources, and the equation is not dissimilar to how you might explore the mixing of different light sources. Starting with that simple approach, I did my normal thing of turning the volume knob up to 11, and tried to see how I could break this system in different ways, in order to explore the different feelings, moods and expressions that emerge. I gravitate to work which feels illuminated, where light is a central component, and with this study I found light everywhere I looked. The system starts as a simple mathematical function (these are essentially photographs of math), but I like to iterate and iterate to find natural, emergent properties and moments that surprise." - Zach Lieberman
