<关于艺术家>
卡西·瑞斯1972年生于美国。现生活工作于加州洛杉矶。

卡西.瑞斯以编写软件来探索作为艺术的条件系统(conditional system)。通过定义自然生发的网络和分层说明(layered instruction),他定义了一块独一无二的构建在具象艺术、观念艺术、实验动画和绘画之上的视觉体验的区域。动态和生成的软件一向是他创作的核心媒介,同时他也运用打印、物件、装置和表演等从他的视觉系统中物化而来的多变的媒介。

瑞斯的软件、打印作品及装置广泛见诸美国、欧洲、亚洲各博物馆和画廊举办的个展及群展。他的作品近期在旧金山现代艺术博物馆(San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)和芝加哥美术馆(Art Institute of Chicago)展出,近期委托创作包括惠特尼美国艺术博物馆(Whitney Museum of American Art)和迈阿密新世界交响乐团(New World Symphony in Miami)。瑞斯作品由私人藏家和公共机构收藏,其中包括蓬皮杜艺术中心(Centre Georges Pompidou)、维多利亚和阿尔伯特博物馆(Victoria and Albert Museum)。

他是洛杉矶加利福尼亚大学的教授,分别取得麻省理工学院(MIT)媒体艺术和科学硕士学位及辛辛那提大学(University of Cincinnati)设计、建筑、艺术与城规学院的学士学位。2001年,瑞斯和本.弗莱(Ben Fry)一起创建了Processing。Processing是适用于视觉艺术领域的开源程序语言和环境。

近来,瑞斯与人合作撰写设计了书籍10 PRINT CHR$ (205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 (麻省理工出版社,2013年)。瑞斯与弗莱出版了《Processing:给视觉设计师和艺术家们的编程手册》(Processing: A Programming Handbook for Visual Designers and Artists)。本书是在视觉媒体语境内对编程的全面介绍(麻省理工出版社,2007年)。瑞斯和钱德勒.威廉姆斯(Chandler McWilliams)、鲁斯特(Lust)合作出版了《设计、艺术与建筑中的形式+编码》(Form+Code in Design, Art, and Architecture)(普林斯顿建筑出版社,2010年)。该书是针对视觉艺术软件的历史、理论和实践而作的非技术性的介绍。瑞斯的《进程简编 2004-2010》(Process Compendium 2004—2010)记录了六年来瑞斯通过软件探索突现现象(the phenomena of emergence)的作品。

卡西·瑞斯|《计时法》|2011|定制软件投影

卡西·瑞斯与塔尔·罗斯纳(Tal Rosner)合作创作了《记时法》,是为地处迈阿密的由弗兰克·盖里(Frank Gehry)设计的新世界交响乐建筑而创作的一幅定点软件壁画。该大型装置为该建筑外立面大小为7千平方英尺的投影墙而创作,灵感直接来自这座新楼及其周围迈阿密沙滩的历史性艺术装饰街区。基于数千张在该大楼建造期间拍摄的照片,以及当地建筑的图像,这幅不断变化的壁画往返于可辨识与抽象的状态之间,使大楼表面倍添活力和新意。每小时起始时,壁画上会插播此图像库中的素材,实现的方法是通过变换该作品编排设计的各方面——细节、步调、调色、节奏、几何以及图案。定制编写的软件不仅产生每个小时的周期,而且随着时间的变更而生成对于不论初次造访抑或重复观看的观众而言都是不断变化的视觉经验。


卡西·瑞斯|《表面》|2009|定制软件投影|尺寸可变

装置作品《表面》,或称《Process》(装置1), 是对巴克敏斯特·富勒(Buckminster Fuller)的“戴马克松地图”(Dymaxion Map)的迭代创作。它将一个想像的世界的表面展开并用图表来揭示横穿其表面的物质流动。

<About the Artist>

Casey Reas
b.1972, United States
Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA

Casey Reas writes software to explore conditional systems as art. Through defining emergent networks and layered instructions, he has defined a unique area of visual experience that builds upon concrete art, conceptual art, experimental animation, and drawing. While dynamic,generative software remains his core medium, work in variable media including prints, objects, installations, and performances materialize from his visual systems.

Reas’ software, prints, and installations have been featured widely in solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Recent venues include the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, and recent commissions have been awarded by the Whitney Museum of American Art and the New World Symphony in Miami. Reas’ work is in a range of private and public collections, including the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

He is a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, and holds a masters degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Media Arts and Sciences as well as a bachelors degree from the School of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. With Ben Fry, Reas initiated Processing in 2001. Processing is an open source programming language and environment for the visual arts.

Reas recently co-wrote and designed the book 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 (MIT Press, 2013). Reas and Fry published Processing: A Programming Handbook for Visual Designers and Artists, a comprehensive introduction to programming within the context of visual media (MIT Press, 2007). With Chandler McWilliams and Lust, Reas published Form+Code in Design, Art, and Architecture (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010), a non-technical introduction to the history, theory, and practice of software in the visual arts. Reas’ Process Compendium 2004—2010 documents six years of his work exploring the phenomena of emergence through software.

Reas directed the stage design for Yeasayer’s 2012 Fragrant World tour in collaboration with Aranda\Lasch, Nick Gould, and Yoshi Sodeoka. The project was commissioned by The Creators Project.


Casey Reas | Chronograph | 2011 | Custom software projection

Casey Reas and Tal Rosner collaborated to create Chronograph, a site-specific software mural for the Frank Gehry-designed home of the New World Symphony in Miami. Created for the building’s 7,000-square-foot exterior projection wall, this large-scale installation takes its inspiration directly from the new building and the surrounding historical art deco neighborhood of Miami Beach. Based on thousands of photographs taken over the course of the construction of the new building and images of local architecture, the ever-changing mural shifts between the recognizable and the abstract, animating and creating new forms on the building’s surface. Using the same visual source material, the mural is punctuated by hourly videographic events marking the top of each hour, achieved by altering aspects of the work’s choreography – detail, pacing, palette, rhythm, geometry, and pattern. Custom-written software creates not only create hourly cycles, but generate an ever-changing visual experience over time for new and repeat visitors.
Casey Reas | Surface | 2009 | Custom software projection | Dimension variable

The Surface installation, a.k.a Process 13 (Installation 1), is an iteration of Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion Map. The surface of an imagined world is unfolded and diagrammed to reveal the flow of matter across the surface.

Casey Reas | Process 4 (A) | 2010 | C print | 50 x 50 cm | Edition of 8 + 2 AP

The Process Compendium 2004-2010 consists of two sets of fifteen prints that document Process 4 to Process 18 and one index print that includes the complete Process Compendium text. For each set, a single static image was selected from an infinite field of variations. Each print is 50 x 50 cm; each edition is stored in a black anodized aluminum box.
