Hi! Welcome to Glaem. My name is Sarah Ridgley and I’m an artist and creative coder.
All my work is the result of highly-ordered chaos. This means that I write very organized instructions to direct the art, but then introduce random parameters so that the computer can try out an infinite variety of results. Once I have completed a program, I curate through as many iterations as needed to find the image that most speaks to me.
When I have a result that I like, I save the “seed” number so that I can reproduce that exact iteration but change the parameters slightly. This allows me to show the movement of the strokes and create animations for augmented reality.
Once I’m ready to bring a piece from the digital realm into the analog, I print it using a Risograph. This is a form of silk screening where the ink is printed one color at a time. Immediately after printing, while the ink is still wet, I use thermography to coat the ink with resin and melt it into the final result.
