ABOUT POIRIER’S ART
Poirier writes software to enable visual artists to fully benefit from print-on-demand businesses and from the crypto art markets. In 2021, Poirier provided online services to automate the creation and the entire revision of any given visual artist’s portfolio. He founded Fractal Montreal (FM-ORG) to produce very large-scale images derived from artists’ artworks. FM-ORG not only enables each artist’s artwork to perfectly fit any given print-on-demand product no matter sizes and proportion, but the artist can optionally modify their artwork’s fine and large scales subject geometries, overall textures, as well as local and global color palettes. FM-ORG helps artists produce visually consistent and coherent image series from their unique art. Artists can even get the copyrights as well as the full source code of the algorithms along with complete multi-platform client-server applications. In 2022, Poirier opens new markets to visual artists by fully enabling them. VOROTRANS (V-ORG) and NAKEDSOFT (NS-ORG) were also funded to produce new and unique visual artworks, ambient music, and real-time animations derived from artists’ illustrations, paintings, photographs, and audio-video content optionally including artist’s audio tracks, sounds, and music extracts. The hundred of software apps Poirier writes sells, and maintains, all exploit the interaction of audio, video, and text information in a minimalist way in order to progressively construct new original and unique digital content completely live in batch/server mode or in interactive/client mode before the artist’s ears and eyes exposing all algorithms parameters directly embedded in graphical content’s surface. In this interactive mode, the visual artwork becomes the artist’s interface.
Poirier’s art really lies in the AI software he has written for the last 3 decades. In 2022, available online as various production services for artists all under AUDIO, VIDEO, and TEXTO SPI website https://SPI.RUN.
Poirier considers the artworks he produced, with the software he writes, to be “etudes”. While he considers himself more focused on abstract and texture creation, Poirier most often merges figurative elements into his visual compositions and relies intensively on spatial and spectral series of iterative deconstruction and reconstruction processes to create the final artworks. Using the software he writes, Poirier creates live video effects by dragging and dropping audio sound loops directly over the various areas of Vorotrans-ed images. Since 2017, he ran unique series of computer graphics experiments most often seeding his algorithms with grand feminine model photography, superb underwater ambiances, as well as epic aerial scenery video footage.
As a seasoned software writer-artist by now in 2022, Poirier next plans to use the coming decade to help and enable thousands of artists and business individuals around the world.
Until 2032, Poirier estimates emerging from being a software writer-artist to becoming established as an accomplished mixed-media artist.
ABOUT POIRIER’S VOROTRANS ART
While the Fractal algorithms are widely used in the computer graphics and gaming industries, the Vorotrans algorithms POIRIER writes are new and original. At the time of writing the Vorotrans Art Manifesto, available on POIRIER’s website at https://humanaware.org/2017/09/29/the-founding-and-manifesto-of-vorotrans-art/, initial Vorotrans artworks were digital videos not created for being printed onto physical supports. From 2020, most Fractal Montreal and Vorotrans artworks are created at high resolution and are produced using a wide range of colors for being easily printed onto objects of all kinds so POIRIER’s artworks can become part of your environment.
In Vorotrans art, only space partition frontiers are made visible. Such partitioning of the 2-D space is called a Voronoi diagram. It is named after the Russian and Ukrainian mathematician Georgy Voronoy. Therefore each Vorotrans still image as well as each Vorotrans video frame is a Voronoi diagram. Vorotrans art is not purely algorithmic art. Vorotrans art is generated using an algorithm seeded using an image. That seed image emerges through the Voronoi diagram like if the Voronoi diagram was transparent. From which the name Vorotrans art stands for Voronoi transparent art. VOROTRANS.ORG (V-ORG) is the official website of the Vorotrans Art Movement at https://www.vorotrans.org.
ABOUT POIRIER’S FRACTAL MONTREAL ART
POIRIER develops FractalMontreal.ORG(FM-ORG) algorithms and applies these to his Vorotrans.ORG (V-ORG) artworks for producing animated artistic videos as well as for producing colorful images at all scales for being printed on all kinds of objects from home decor, lifestyle, and apparel to wall artworks to mention only a few.
ABOUT POIRIER’S NAKED SOFT ART
Poirier writes NakedSoftware.ORG (NS-ORG) algorithms to produce NakedSoft.ORG’s artistic nude content. Poirier produces art with a purpose. NS-ORG converts most private personal content into mixed-media fine art by dressing up the subjects as well as reconstructing its visual environment. FM-ORG scales digital content to generate exact fit print-on-demand products of all shapes and sizes. V-ORG encrypts digital audio, video, and texto content into inaudible, invisible, and unreadable edge networks and interpretation networks.
ABOUT POIRIER’S HUMAN-AWARE ART
Poirier uses HumanAware.ORG (HA-ORG) to extract, fetch, and publish V-ORG edge networks’ and interpretation networks’ subsets into strings of numbered NFTs on one or more live blockchains. NFTs’ P2P smart contracts may include or not rights to NS-ORG’s generative art open-source software code as well as rights to NAKEDSOFT’s digital content. HA-ORG’s focus is not only on helping large diversity of artists to emerge but resides rather very much on heavily creating digital art content to enable individuals to self-manage both their local privacy everywhere and their global identity on most P2P networks.
ABOUT POIRIER’S SPI CORP
In 2022, Poirier is founding SPI CORP to facilitate the transfer of open-source software, virtual machines, pre-configured servers, computer hard disks with bare metal installs with or without the whole gear, computer cloud accounts, etc. Know that while you can get tens of thousands of digital images per prepaid 100$ CAD from SPI CORP’s set of online ORGs mentioned here above,.the prepaid price tag for SPI CORP’s digital products transfers starts from 100K CAD and up and will typically make you commit to half a million CAD to get Poirier, yes SPI himself, for 1-year as a consultant for ensuring the proper product transfer and secure its operation ability on your end. It is the only way to go if you need to keep the greater number of local and international systems around you in a zero-knowledge state with respect to your communications, networks, and contacts.
I have been introduced to many computer graphics algorithms while studying complex systems and developing visual recognition software. In attempting to automate the interpretation of airborne forest cover images, I have used algorithms to model and represent forest image textures in the computer. Inspired by some of the geometric data representations used in this science, I have applied these computer graphic algorithms onto common vegetal and animal scenes in order to generate organic Vorotrans computer art.
In my Vorotrans art, I want the organic to manifest itself out of the geometric. Natural motions and natural shapes emanate from visual scenes filtered by Voronoi diagrams.
Voronoi diagrams are composed of highly geometric visual objects. Common vegetal and animal scenes are composed of highly organic visual objects. When filtering vegetal and animal scenes with transparent Voronoi diagrams, one gets the fusion between the geometric and the organic, a computer-generated semi-abstract art visually captivating to the human eye.
The writing of the upcoming books The Real Queen Of England, An American President, Magicvan 3000, Surfing On Love, and Transparent SPI influences greatly the subjects from which Vorotrans artworks, Fractal Montreal, and NakedSoft artworks are derived since 2017. These upcoming books feature one thousand and one goddess characters. It is these works of fiction’s female characters I depict here on Fine Art America and Pixels.
Stephane Poirier is a pioneer in Vorotrans art – art made out of transparent Voronoi diagrams. Poirier currently works as a software developer at OIFII.ORG and he is also OIFII.ORG’s founder. At OIFII.ORG, Voronoi diagrams are used, for individual tree level forest texture recognition out of airborne Lidar data, in order to automate the process of building new forest maps for governments. In 2017, Poirier had the idea to use these Voronoi diagrams combined with a specific algorithm to produce semi-abstract art called Vorotrans art. In 2018, Poirier developed Fractal Montreal algorithms to produce animated artistic videos and 3D-print his artwork on all kinds of objects.
For the years to come, Vorotrans art installations and Fractal Montreal live event visuals are made available to art galleries, music artists, and music event producers around the world.
Poirier has held many research positions at Laval University, University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, the University of Massachusetts in Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Sherbrooke, and McGill University. Over the years, Poirier has also held many corporate positions in Quebec and California. He has developed commercial software for EXFO, MATROX, ISERA, CJ, and XEROX.
