In the format of scalable custom wallpaper, a viewpoint of the system emerges that engulfs the viewer, testing the architectural logic of Process 18. Line is a primary form used in the series Process 18. The behavior of line in these pieces is guided by the artist’s instructions. Reas’ approach to writing computer code is akin to Sol LeWitt’s authorship of instructions for wall drawings, but generative software procedures replace the human hand. Also influenced by earlier artists and thinkers working within systemic conceptual frameworks such as Euclid, Lissitzky, and Haacke, Reas focuses on relationships between dynamic elements.
