Don’t miss Louis Pratt’s mind bending exhibition which combines 3D printing and day-to-day algorithms to produce sculptural forms.

To create his works, Pratt uses the organic data of the human body. His use of the term, organic data, derives from real world objects, as distinct from inorganic data, which is produced solely inside software. With organic data he uses digital sculpting tools, essentially mathematical algorithms. Once satisfied with the sculpted data form, he employs prototyping to produce sculpture.

“Artistically I focus on the fact we live cyber lives and are thereby subject to the rules of a cyber world. For that reason I manipulate the human form with mathematical algorithms. Algorithms play a huge role in people’s lives today whether they know it/like it, or not,” he said.

He points out that the mathematics behind some of these functions started well before computers. Pratt pays homage to the work George Boole, who’s algorithms, developed around 1857, still underpin and are composed in current software.

“Boolean functions are something I explore in my work as a sculptor,” he added.
