As a kid, I loved drawing. Then technology took my interest, study, and the "need to get a job".
As a Uni student, I was fascinated by ambient music, and by Brian Eno's generative, meditative art installations; with the art of growing pictures. I could do that with computers, but it would have been a bit sterile.
Late in my IT career, I took photos of natural, found, and made-up patterns and textures, and built a website to interweave them (see: https://stillmovingart.net).
People liked the way these pictures sit quietly, like a stream passing by.
I recorded some sequences as long videos, and put them to ambient music. Robert Rich's music really suited the organic styles (and Robert liked them too!).
So here was a kind of visual and musical meditation. Always changing, always familiar.
