JONATHAN McCABE: 

Jonathan McCabe is a generative artist living in Canberra, Australia, particularly interested in theories of natural pattern formation and their application to art and design. He is inspired by the work of Alan Turing who hypothesised a process that leads to the spots and stripes seen in the natural world, including zebra and tropical fish stripes, and repeating structures like the vertebrae bones in the spine or the fingers of the hand. Jonathan is also influenced by modern theories of how the universe expanded from a tiny size into what we see today, with all its structure at multiple length scales, and how variation and selection in the natural world lead to a multiplicity of wondrous forms. Though his work is generated using a digital computer, he sees it as a homage to the natural world in that the processes involved are derived from observation and hypothesis of how the patterns in nature originate.
