Families of form: generative art created in series.
Families of form created with a common ancestral code are a unique feature of a great deal of my work since 1985. Early series were difficult to document visually due to limited studio resources. More recent series have better documentation. As I find time to locate work and resources I hope to expand the information on various series. from all periods.
