Carter Hodgkins Irises on a Rock, 2012 Animation HD


Carter Hodgkin draws inspiration from the invisible world of physics and larger phenomena in nature. The forces at work in her animations mirror nature in its instability and uncertainty. To create an animation, she manipulates computer code, generating sub-atomic particle collisions. This manip- ulation becomes a drawing process where parameters are set and random moments of collision are captured. Each collision generates animated particles interacting and colliding with random results. “Irises on a Rock” came about after examining the lines of bifurcating stems and blossoms on wildflowers and weeds.


Bio Hodgkin is a 2012 recipient of the Gottlieb Foundation Artist Fellowship; a 2009 Fellow in Digital/Electronic Arts and a 1989 Fellow in Painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
