The artist Jacob Joaquin talks about his art: “My art has rules. I employ algorithms and computer code to create procedurally-based works. Through a daily iterative process, I tend to an ever evolving continuum of ideas, seeking to manifest the subtle hidden forms that exist within algorithmic structures. Each idea is woven together as a string in a narrative, providing the audience an intimate view of a concept as it blossoms.”
