"Proximity Studies" is the culmination of a series of "proximity" related experiments written in Processing (processing.org).
We were interested to see what forms would emerge, when points, arranged in rigid structures are distorted, corrupted, transformed or displaced.
Once the "Proximity Studies" motion project was complete we took our favourite scene and re-purposed it to create a series of 100, one-off generative prints.
We used processing to draw & layout each print, and by varying random seed values, interconnections & position, we were able to create the 100 unique, hand selected prints.
We've been trying to find a project to work with Rik from Ripe Digital on for ages, and this was perfect for their short run, high quality approach.
Rik, helped us enormously with choosing the best paper & process and advised on how to produce the artwork for their HP indigo 7800 digital press.
The final prints are white ink, digitally printed on A3 Fedrigoni 290gsm Sirio Nero.

Generating the final set of Proximity Studies prints... "I got 99 PDFs, but a batch (file) ain't one" etc ;) #processing #generative #print pic.twitter.com/hqk28TPXpr— Mike Brondbjerg (@mikebrondbjerg) August 23, 2017
reviewing 100 PDFs, generated from @processing with overlays added as a batch process with PDFToolkit. Yay! #Generative #Digital #Print pic.twitter.com/SStjzbAIqN— Mike Brondbjerg (@mikebrondbjerg) August 23, 2017
Awesome to see these being printed by @rik1p on Ripe Digital's HP Indigo. White ink & each print is unique! :) #generative #print #design pic.twitter.com/hxqzYd9iCC— Mike Brondbjerg (@mikebrondbjerg) August 24, 2017
We are currently selling a limited number of these prints via our Big Cartel print shop.
