The fusion of art and technology can create all sorts of interesting and unexpected results, and “Laws of Attractor”, a series of generative portraits by Catalan artist Sergio Albiac, ticks both boxes at once. It might be best to let the artist himself explain what’s going on here: “Programmed emotional responses to face recognition,” reads his tersely worded artist’s statement at Behance. “Generative series of portraits using a mixture of generative collage, digital inks and accidental glitches. A coded revision of traditional techniques.” Quite how the generative aspect works isn’t entirely clear, but there’s no arguing with the results, which are pretty impressive. Check them out after the jump, and also have a look at Albiac’s other work at his website.
