Timothy Gardner was trained in physics and biology and studies neuroscience at Boston University.

He explores the interface of science and art through oil painting, generative visual art, and algorithmic music.

His involvement with algorithmic art began in 1986

and observations of natural geometry

This led to formal study of the physics of nonlinear systems.

Research in a number of algorithmically beautiful subjects followed.

The generative art highlighted here is based on algorithms in development from
from 2001 to 2013.
