Sergio Albiac is a visual artist based in Barcelona, Spain, whose process of production involves writing computer programs to generate complex images of beauty and emotion. In his latest artist foray into "generative portraiture," Albiac employs the concept of nucleosynthesis, essentially the cosmic creation of stardust, to compose automated collage portraits that source photographs from The Hubble Space Telescope. The resulting images are not only universally appealling as works of abstracted beauty, but also representative of our place in the cosmos as material beings essentially made of star stuff.

Sergio Albiac has an unusual artistic process. He begins by writing computer programs that generate images. Once his idea has been translated into code, he will search and select the visual results that best express his point. These generative images will sometimes be his final work or he will use them as an electronic sketchbook to visualize his concepts before painting.

I create visual imagery to articulate my thoughts about the beauty, contradictions and emotion of the act of living. My work revolves around the interior worlds we create in our minds and the tensions that arise when confronted to our realities. The illusion of control in a world much governed by randomness and the elusive nature of emotions are also recurring ideas in my work.
