‘Nebel Wald’, meaning Cloud Forest is a series of generative trees created by Holger Lippmann. Berlin born who lived and studied in paris, new york now lives and works in Berlin, represented by the berlin based [DAM] gallery, in London by nous and by the edition gallery lumas.
deep inside i’m a painter and i always was. so i see my work best described in the traditional context of painting. the focus is on the development of an image and color composition…… i like to compare my work process to dancing or improvising music. it’s like the process of developing a (most nearly) finished composition throughout a performance or play. for me it is the way in which evolving form elements start organizing and – in the best case – combine to form a fascinating image.
I asked Holger about his latest venture, the cloud forest:
well, it’s kind of a simple tree branching – recursion – algorithm, which i assembled together with more and more finely adjusted parameters of position, size, alfa… and much fuzz about light and dark and color. since i come from painting i’m more the one who does “more image” with less code;) i put much parameters on my keyboard and finally the process of actively generating, is very much the same as i would stand in front of my easel, …stepping back, ..looking, …holding the head slanted…, the inner process of creating a composition is anyway the very same…, thats why i prefere to call it “digital painting” or “e-painting”…
