Aletheia Guild Project Dialogue

Project Dialogue is a community-based arts project encouraging innovation in the application of advanced software tools to create what is popularly referred to as “generative art”.

The project is coined as a “Dialogue” whereby the participants are “conversing” through the act of curiosity-driven exploration, creative experimentation and self-expression through the co-creation of a work of art.

The prototype foreground wood frames (pictured at the top of this post) were originally designed and fabricated by Lauchlin Burnett with the support of CNC Ottawa at Makerspace North

As the project evolved, the Aletheia Guild approached Canada’s 1st indigenous FabLab — FabLab ONAKI — to collaborate with theSpace autism centre to design and fabricate custom frames (see image below).

The Aletheia Guild is currently exploring the potential of hosting an art exhibit this Fall with the theme of “More Trees” inspired by Top Shelf Distillers#MORETREES environmental initiative.

In Josh’s words: “It [Tinkersynth] lets you create unique generative art by making serendipitous discoveries through experimentation. More concretely, Tinkersynth is a design tool where you build art by poking at sliders and buttons. The goal isn’t to provide a linear path to a specific piece of art, but rather to encourage experimentation. Tinkersynth prioritizes being delighted by unexpected effects rather than creating an intuitive, predictable tool.
