Off Script

Emily Xie

*Off Script* is a generative system that explores sensoriality through the subject of collage. At its core, the series uses a custom masking algorithm to cut out shapes from algorithmically produced papers, which are then arranged throughout the canvas. It is programmed in Javascript. Much like the practice of collage itself, *Off Script* elicits a deeply sensorial experience. Generative textures induce a sense of tactility, while askew jagged shapes evoke the punctuated off-beat sounds of jazz. With its synesthetic qualities, the series challenges its own medium, creating a dialogue between the immateriality of digital representation and the corporality of the physical realm. *Off Script*'s visual language references various 20th century modern art movements that similarly emphasized medium and material through distilled expressions of shape, color, and composition.
