Artist’s Statement

ex•pres•sive

adjective effectively conveying thought or feeling. • [ predic. ] (expressive of) conveying (the specified quality or idea)

com•pu•ta•tion

noun the action of mathematical calculation : months of computation carried out on more than 200 computers | statistical computations. • the use of computers, esp. as a subject of research or study.

I make artwork by writing programs or software. I am interested in how to build abstract forms that move

in space to form dynamic compositions. I create software that produces motion dynamics and abstract shapes. Dynamics and movement among other displayed through a computer screen, or through print on paper output. Another thing to do is manually painted using acrylic on canvas with objects generated visual output from the screen and the printed results.

In a simple flow, the processes is to write a series of commands in a programming language and build it to be software that can be executed by a computer. The resulting output is not merely pure generative in the sense of not fully autonomous, but a semi-automatic, where the input and interaction from humans are necessary to obtain the desired visual.

I see similarities between the process of making ceramics that I have ever learned and making software.

In making ceramic we have to treat the materials (clay) so that there is no trapped air which can lead to broken tiles at the time of combustion. Similarly, mixing glaze to get the desired color when baked clay into ceramics, needs to be done carefully. So it is with programming, we write the program line by line,

then ordered a computer for compiling (compiling) or change the file that contains the program that we can read (human readable) into file that can be understood by the computer (machine readable). This process is repeated because there are times when we make mistakes so that the compiler or compiling a program that gives an error message. And so on until we do not find more bugs and at some point to get the results we want.

Spontaneous generation or Equivocal genera - tion is an obsolete theory regarding the origin of

Spontaneous generation or Equivocal genera- tion is an obsolete theory regarding the origin of life from inanimate matter, which held that this process was a commonplace and everyday oc- currence, as distinguished from Univocal genera- tion, or reproduction from parent(s). The theory was synthesized by Aristotle[1], who compiled and expanded the work of prior natural philoso- phers and the various ancient explanations of the appearance of organisms; it held sway for two millennia. It is generally accepted to have been ultimately disproven in the 19th Century by the experiments of Louis Pasteur, expanding upon the experiments of other scientists before him (such as Francesco Redi who had performed simi- lar experiments in the 17th century). Ultimately, it was succeeded by germ theory and cell theory.

The disproof of ongoing spontaneous generation is no longer controversial, now that the life cycles of various life forms have been well documented. However, the question of abiogenesis, how living things originally arose from non-living material, remains relevant today.

Psychedelic Waves

Play with pure visual aspects by combining basic compositional elements such as color, line, shape, etc. with movement. I seek to discover many effect, for example something like waves and optical ef- fects produced by those combinations. This sketch displays bouncing balls with repeated ellipses to create wave-like optical effects.

Biography

Widianto Nugroho is an artist, designer, program- mer, researcher, and lecturer. He is primarily in- terested in computational media, and free/open source software (FOSS), among other things.

In the computational media, he explores methods and tools used in computer science or informat- ics engineering fields (computation, algorithm, and programming) to address and solve design problems as well as medium of expression with its unique potential. This activity resulted in series of software and generative works[1][2]. He works mainly with Processing[3], an open source pro- gramming language and environment to program images, animation, and interactions. He contrib- utes to the Processing project through lectures, workshops[4], and translated the reference of Pro- cessing language into Indonesian. Since 2005, at Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) as part time faculty member he teaches undergraduate course in digital printmaking, where he spreads the idea of art making with programming.

In the FOSS area, from early 2007, Widianto works as researcher at Microelectronics Center[5] ITB. He is a member of a research group focused on the distribution of freely available FOSS application packages and simple desktop environment that can be run on low-end PC and removable media. This research activity is part of the National Strate- gic Research on Open Source Software (Riset Ung- gulan Strategis Nasional, RUSNAS-OSS) program funded by Indonesian Ministry for Research and Technology (RISTEK). Also at the Microelectron- ics Center he and his colleague develop desktop theme[6] (icon set, desktop background, and login

manager) for Gnome[7] desktop that depicts Indo- nesian culture and tradition. The theme has been released and is currently packaged into BlankOn Linux[8], an Indonesian-flavor Linux distribution.

With the theme development effort, along with lecture and workshop, he aims to promote the adoption of FOSS applications particularly graph- ics, video, and audio editing software by creative community to meet their professional needs in creative productions. While currently could not be said completely better than that of the propri- etary software, with FOSS creative workers running small/medium businesses could get legal software without pay expensive license cost. Beside FOSS adoption by creative community, he also aims to encourage contribution from the creative commu- nity back to the open source community. Through the open nature of FOSS development, anyone are allowed to contribute to any FOSS project, includ- ing artists and designers. For example, artists and designers can submit their artworks, icons, and themes under the terms of any licenses that con- form to the Open Source Definition[9], or simply re- port usability issue found on the FOSS software. By doing so, the developer are helped to make FOSS software better.

In his other life, Widianto works as web and infor- mation system specialist at ITB. He is responsible for leading a team in designing, implementing, and maintaining the daily operation of top-level ITB web site[10]. The web site has won many awards:

in 2003, second prize for higher education website from Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information (KOMINFO); in 2005 and 2007, first

prize for best university web site from Directorate of Higher Education (DIKTI), Indonesian Ministry of Education (DIKNAS); in 2006, ranks 46 on Webo- metrics TOP 100 Asian Universities on The Web.

In 1998, located at ITB Library, he and his friends co-found the Knowledge Management Research Group (KMRG). At KMRG he contributed to the development of Ganesha Digital Library (GDL)[11], a web-based digital library software with its core technology of exchanging metadata collections among digital library servers in XML formatted files. It is possible through implementation of Dub- lin Core metadata standard and Open Archive Ini- tiative (OAI) protocol. Today GDL has been widely used and adopted by many institutions. It has been deployed as main engine in the Indonesian Digital Library Network (IndonesiaDLN) by which its mem- ber institutions are able to connect each other and exchange metadata of their digital contents. GDL is released as open source software under GNU/GPL license. With KMRG, he has consulting and working for many clients.

Widianto graduated in from ITB with Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in ceramics. After graduated he works in information technology (IT) area for almost ten years. He is currently doing his gradu- ate work in Curriculum Development leading to a Master of Education degree at Indonesia University of Education (UPI) in Bandung Indonesia.

Born in 1972, Widianto lives in Bandung with his wife Aam, his daughter Alia, and his son Ilham. In his spare time, Widianto enjoys hiking, flickring[12], tweeting[13], facebooking[14], and railfaning with

his family. As a railfan he loves to see General Elec- tric locomotive in action and hear the sound of its diesel engine.
