Simon Ingram, Automata Painting, 2020

Open now at the newly refurbished Whangārei Art Museum is Machine in the Garden featuring Simon Ingram’s Automata Paintings and a series of new computer-based works by Terrestrial Assemblages, an ecological working group Ingram initiated alongside digital artist John-Paul Pochin to create sensitivity to, and awareness of, natural systems.

The Automata Paintings, and the computer-based Tree Models, share an interpretation of complexity as the consequence of rule-based environments. Both series employ algorithmic “self-organising” systems called cellular automata, which were initially conceived of by mathematician John von Neumann as part of his research into machine self-replication and later developed by Konrad Zuse, John Conway, Christoper Langton and Stephen Wolfram. - Text from Whangārei Art Museum website.
