Irises on a Rock redux , 2021

Carter Hodgkin

The works submitted are sections from my longer animation, The Nine Bend Stream.

The Nine Bend Stream was inspired by a painting of famous mountains in China at the Metropolitan Museum in NYC. The volcanic depictions of mountains and spatial relationships in Chinese Literati paintings inspired me to form a moving composition using simulated atomic particle collisions.

To create an animation, I manipulate computer code, generating atomic particle collisions. This manipulation becomes a drawing process where parameters are set and random moments of collision are captured. In employing randomness in my creative process, I draw inspiration from Jean Arp and John Cage.

I piece collisions together to form a moving composition. Generating and assembling different particle collisions into an animation becomes, to me, like drawing in time. Through the manipulation of animated forms, the forces at work in these animations mirror nature in its ephemeral process of growth and dissipation.
