Do you want to benefit with helping an emerging algorithmic artist?

All your generous funding will be applied to print Vorotrans art into canvas in order to have the material to start exhibit in Art Galleries around the world by beginning of 2018.
 
About Vorotrans art

In Vorotrans art, only space partition frontiers are made visible. Such partitioning of the 2-D space is called Voronoi diagram. It is named after the Russian and Ukrainian mathematician Georgy Voronoy. Therefore each Vorotrans still image as well as each Vorotrans video frame is a Voronoi diagram. Vorotrans art is not purely algorithmic art. Vorotrans art is generated using an algorithm seeded using an image. That seed image emerges through the Voronoi diagram like if the Voronoi diagram was transparent. From which the name Vorotrans art standing for Voronoi transparent art.

Artist's Statement

I have been introduced to many computer graphics algorithms while studying complex systems and developing visual recognition software. In attempting to automate the interpretation of airborne forest cover images, I have used algorithms to model and to represent forest image textures in the computer. Inspired by some of the geometric data representations used in this science, I have applied these computer graphic algorithms onto common vegetal and animal scenes in order to generate organic Vorotrans computer art.

In my Vorotrans art, I want the organic to manifest itself out of the geometric. Natural motions and natural shapes emanates from visual scenes filtered by Voronoi diagrams.

Voronoi diagrams are composed of highly geometric visual objects. Common vegetal and animal scenes are composed of highly organic visual objects. When filtering vegetal and animal scenes with transparent Voronoi diagrams, one gets the fusion between the geometric and the organic, a computer generated semi-abstract art visually captivating to the human eye.

Biography

Stephane Poirier is a pioneer in Vorotrans art – art made out of transparent Voronoi diagrams. Poirier currently works as a software developer at OIFII.ORG and he is also OIFII.ORG’s founder. At OIFII.ORG, Voronoi diagrams are used, for individual tree level forest texture recognition out of airborne Lidar data, in order to automate the process of building new forest maps for governments. In 2017, Poirier had the idea to use these Voronoi diagrams combined with a specific algorithm to produce semi-abstract art called Vorotrans art.

For the years to come, Vorotrans art installations are now made available to art galleries around the world.

Poirier has held many research positions at Laval University, University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of Masssachusetts in Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Sherbrooke and McGill University. Over the years, Poirier has also held many corporate positions in Quebec and California. He has developed commercial software for EXFO, MATROX, ISERA, CJ and XEROX.

New art movement

Vorotrans could become a new art movement. And you can make it happen ...

Donations of 25$ will receive a 1920x1080 pixel Vorotrans still image of my choice.

Donations of 50$ will receive a 1920x1080 pixel Vorotrans still image of your choice - you will upload an image of your choice to me and I will apply the Vorotrans process to it and return it to you.

Donations of 100$ will receive a Vorotrans video of a few minutes of my choice.

Donations of 250$ will receive a Vorotrans video of a few minutes of your choice - you will upload a video of your choice to me and I will apply the Vorotrans process to it and return it to you.
 
Your support is key

It will mean the world to me if we can make it together by giving the birth to what could be a new art movement - the Vorotrans art.

I will be very grateful for the financial help you are providing to me.

Hello everyone,

For the launch of Vorotrans Art this fall, I did a little bit of politics.

The truth about the Vladimir Putin Donald Trump relation remains unknown in North America. At a time where Donald Trump is under investigation for ties to Russia, the new Vorotrans art movement is launched. In Vorotrans art, only space partition frontiers are made visible. Such partitioning of the 2-D space is called Voronoi diagram. It is named after the Russian and Ukrainian mathematician Georgy Voronoy.

If you are interested in a little bit of history about HumanAware.ORG and the Vorotrans Art movement, see my blog article http://oifii.org/ha-org/2017/10/03/it-takes-many-years-to-fuel-a-rocket-but-only-one-minute-to-launch.

The Vorotrans Art Manifesto is now available online from my blog in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German. The English version is at http://oifii.org/ha-org/2017/09/29/the-founding-and-manifesto-of-vorotrans-art.

The Vorotrans Art Manifesto is currently being translated into Chinese, Czech, Polish, Bulgarian, Persian and Arabic. These translations will soon be available on my online blog at http://oifii.org/ha-org/blog.

Finally, I want to thank everyone for reading this message.

Regards,

Stephane Poirier
