Casey Reas: Iterating Substance

East Gallery

Casey Reas (born 1972) develops his own software to create artworks in video, sound, prints, installation, and other media. Reas co-created the open-source programming language Processing, now used by thousands of artists, teachers, and students to learn coding in the context of the visual arts. In early videos and prints, Reas explores the possibilities of Processing, setting the behavior of geometric components in motion to create ever-shifting, iterative compositions. In the more recent Earthly Delights series of videos and prints, Reas feeds high-resolution scans of vegetation collected in Colorado into machine-learning software that combines them at different speeds and rhythms, creating images that simultaneously call to mind the familiar natural world and unfamiliar, otherworldly realms. In the Fleming's immersive installations of Reas’ work, visitors will be invited to slow down and take time to wonder at these evocative expressions at the intersection of art, science, and technology.
