The Coded Image: Computer Generated Art on Display at Marshall Public Library

The art from the figurative hand of a machine and the literal mind of a human will be on display at the Marshall Public Library.

During February and March, the computer-generated art of Reference Associate John Bickelhaupt will be on display. By inputting lines of code into a specialized computer program, Bickelhaupt is able to create geometric shapes and patterns. Once created, Bickelhaupt will add to his creation using image enhancement software. One of the works titled “Bsuperposition” also includes the lines of code used to create the image. 

“I’ve always liked patterns and I guess they encompass how I see the world,” said Bickelhaupt. “The work is tedious but I’ve always been comfortable with that.”

The display can be found on the second floor of the library. The display also includes some of Bickelhaupt’s hand-drawn works.
