For over a decade, Daniel Brown has been manipulating digital plant genomes to cultivate flowers that are not dependent on sunlight and water. His computer-generated flowers are actually clusters of codes. He uses ones and zeros to create gorgeous roses, orchids, and imaginary floral blooms.

The digital artist and interaction designer’s Darwin art project leads to spontaneous designs and colors based on the non-repeating mathematical formulas. These flowers are programmed to grow on screen like time-lapse videos. All animations happen in real-time, and are captured by a camera that is handled via matrix manipulation on the CPU.

Brown’s floral designs have been commissioned by a collection of organizations and programs like the Art Fund’s RENEW program at the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum and the BBC Climate Change website. Unlike anything we’ve seen, Brown’s work stimulates our imagination in an innovative and emotionally engaging way.
