Artsnova Digital Art Gallery
Home to the art and writings of Jim Plaxco

Welcome to the new 2024 Artsnova Digital Art Gallery. The Artsnova Digital Art Gallery is home to the digital art, photography, writings, and other creative activities of Jim Plaxco. The digital art on display here was created using a variety of creative coding techniques, computer graphics software, hardware, and both film and digital photography. A key element in much of the art is the use of customized generative and algorithmic programs designed and written by the artist. The range of art represents the artist's varied interests and his quest to explore the full range of visual possibilities offered by digital technology and custom designed (creative coding) graphics software. Artsnova is also home to Jim's various book projects.

One was for a science fiction convention and the other for students attending a space development conference. In the processing of deleting the art that got created during that process, I decided to keep this one and a number of others based on their artistic appeal.
