Generative artworks made with computer code by Stanza.
Technical Note 20.8.2020. Most of these net artworks can no longer be experienced online unless you are using an old computer running windows 95 or windows 7 with shockwave installed. These were all made using shockwave so that they could be placed online however ADOBE has now made the technology obsolete and updates to internet security mean that newer computers cannot experience these artworks as they were intended. I am leaving the artworks here as an archive. They can be requested for exhibition in which case I can send the files and set up instructions.

All artworks created using custom made software systems from the body of works called Amorphoscpes from 1996 to 2007. They were all made as online interactive systems ie net art and some have been editioned as touch screens and made as executable software.
"These works form part of Stanza’s Amorphoscapes series (which he has been working on since 1996). Unlike existing web-based incarnations, these are limited-edition touch-screens which better demonstrate Stanza’s uncompromising ability to craft technology. These works are exquisitely executed. Aesthetically and technologically they are flawless, standing out vividly against a backdrop of new media art which can be clunky and ill-defined. Even to the untrained eye, or those uninitiated in new media arts, Stanza’s skills and outputs as an artist working with electronic technologies are apparent. " Charlotte Frost
