Artwork / Arrels
- Abstract: Anna Carreras’ work has a strong relationship to the Spanish landscape where she spends her time, and her piece in Social Codes, “Arrels,” connects drawing, code, and the environment through a cycle of growth and decay. While Anna looks to nature for the source of her work, she interprets and transforms her experience into carefully choreographed generative animation. In “Arrels,” growing tendrils the color of earth and sky collide in a vibrant dance. New growth in the arid soil overtakes the old, and the cycle continues.

- Biography: Anna Carreras is a generative artist and creative coder based in Barcelona, Spain. She focuses her work on the use of generative algorithms, code and interactive technology as a means of communication and an experience generator.
She is interested in complexity that emerges from small simple behaviors, from the balance between order, patterns and randomness and the rules behind. She tries to capture the diversity and richness of complexity working with generative algorithms and visuals inspired by Mediterranean colors and culture.
She has developed and exhibited digital installations and generative art pieces at Feral File, Art Blocks curated, Endless Ways, Medialab Prado Madrid, Forum Barcelona 2004, Sónar Festival, MIRA Visual Arts Festival, Abandon Normal Devices Liverpool and Ignite San Francisco among others.
