Brandon Darreff – Looking Outwards 2


I appreciate the amount of complexity and depth Jean Pierre Hebert was able to achieve in his piece “olive branch,” completed in 1990 utilizing a single drawing instrument and line weight. Hebert, an Algorist and pioneer of digital art, programs printing devices such as custom-built devices and plotters using computer codes he has developed himself to produce incredibly detailed drawings such as this one. By combining programming languages and simple mathematics, he successfully bridges both digital and analog mediums in a way that transforms how we think about art. Overall, it easy to hypothesize how his method of creating artwork has greatly influenced digital art practices in use today.
