Matthew Hughes

Matthew Hughes @tasty_plots is a generative artist who started making art using a pen plotter in late 2019. Since then he has expanded his work to include programmed animations using processing and blender. Many of Matthew’s pieces come from mathematical formulas, leading to spectacular and unexpected outcomes from a single input being altered. The mathematical and symmetrical nature of his art is highly intricate and in many cases otherworldly.

“My aim is just to produce visually interesting pieces. I enjoy the process of playing around with maths and code, and the feeling of discovery when my code starts producing beautiful outputs.”

“I like to make as many parts of my code as possible into variables and just play around with different values. Often I will intentionally change variables to values that shouldn’t work just to see what will happen. Some of my favourite pieces have come about in this manner.” - Matthew Hughes
