Animation, On Growth and Form, 2013
Brown is known for his inventive and playful interactive animations. His series On Growth and Form (2000–ongoing) uses mathematical formulas to generate hyperreal blossoms. The beauty of these digital blossoms stems from their frank unreality. Since becoming paralyzed from the upper chest down after a spinal injury in 2003, Brown has employed adaptive technologies to continue growing as a designer and artist, working exclusively in lines of code rather than with his hands.
