Emily Xie Art - Assemblage Artwork


Assemblage is a generative art series of 6 pieces made in Javascript using p5.js. It explores medium, materiality, and emotion as mediated by machine.

The algorithm draws energetic lines that flow throughout the piece. Meanwhile, it creates and shreds generative papers, strewing the fragments across the canvas. Scraps with patterns embodying Xie's femininity and culture overlay each piece, contributing to the sense of depth and tactility. These elements collectively come together to create deeply human and emotive compositions that subvert their own medium.

Exhibited at the Armory Show in NYC via Cortesi Gallery.

MEDIUM: Javascript w/ p5.js
