Square Games

Square Games is an interactive generative art piece published as 384 NFTs. It takes inspiration from early computer art: Herbert W. Franke’s “Quadrate” from 1970.

A recursive algorithm layers squares on top of each other, resulting in very exact grids that look artificial and technological, while the emerging fractal like structures appear organic. Further complexity is introduced to the piece by offsetting the elements from their original positions, filling some of them, as well as coloring some in the same color as the background, thus seeming to erase parts of the drawing. The 16 available color combinations were chosen from 20.000 combinations based on their prospect of achieving Chromostereopsis, an optical illusion that creates the effect of depth as well as shimmering textures.
