This artwork was created by Kyuha Shim and the piece is named “The Art of Selection” which is located on his website http://www.kyuhashim.com/.
I originally found this work because Kyuha was my professor last year and I heard he made amazing computational design. I specifically admire this project because it is such an engaging and beautiful animation. It is like an optical illusional but is also readable words when everything lines up perfectly. This makes the piece so respectable because it is a delicate balance that probably took Kyuha awhile to perfect.
I don’t know much about his work. However, Kyuha Shim is a designer who uses code and collects data. It seems like his focus isn’t on making custom software but rather using data. So I would assume he used commercial software to make his design.
