Triptych of three 16” x 13” with frames. Original art made with India ink robotically plotted on watercolor paper.

This piece is a merger of two ecosystems I think we take for granted: coral reefs and open source software. From the Smithsonian Institute’s public photogrammetry models to the renowned 3D editing software Blender, five distinct open source projects realized this piece from an idea to its physical form displayed today. The corals are rendered in wireframe to reflect what is left behind after a reef experiences bleaching: a collection of empty skeletons.

Jett Pavlica is a computational artist from Durham, North Carolina. Their work exists at the intersection of art and science, visualizing the output of countless computer programs working harmoniously to color a pixel, project light on the wall, or drag a pen across paper. Classic algorithms, physical simulations, and generative organic forms are frequent areas of exploration.

Jett is a founding member of the Durham Powerful Arts Collective where they design unique digital experiences and community engagement events that celebrate art and creativity within Durham.
